Summer is here, and it doesn’t matter if you live in Utah or Alabama, it is hot. At this point, you’re probably looking for any way to cool down, especially if your home’s air conditioning is broken or you don’t have a pool pass. As it turns out, if you have a Ford F-150 or another pickup truck, you are in luck. Why is that? Because you can build your very own redneck swimming pool.
Putting together your redneck swimming pool is surprisingly simple. Other than your truck bed, all you need is a plastic tarp or sheet, some duct tape, and water. Simply arrange the tarp in your truck bed so that it hangs over the top edges, and use duct tape to secure it against the side of the truck. You can also use bungee cords to hook onto the tarp. Grab a hose, fill up the back of your truck bed, and you now have your very own redneck swimming pool.
While some of your neighbors may think you’re strange, most of them will be secretly envious of your ability to have a pool party in your own driveway. Of course, if you don’t have a pickup truck like the Ford F-150 you’re out of luck. If you live in Utah, Henry Day Ford is a perfect location to find a pickup truck that will also become the perfect pool. Don’t worry about your area’s social norms – beat the heat with your own redneck swimming pool today.
