I made my own swimming pool for £20 to get through the heatwave but trolls say I wasted my time | The Sun

July 13, 2022

A WOMAN has revealed how she made her own swimming pool in the garden for just £20 during the recent heatwave.

Although many people praised her budget DIY job, TikTok user @gracelangman was forced to hit back at negative comments on the video.

She uploaded a clip showing her legs paddling in her makeshift garden pool. 

Grace explained: “I dug out my own pool to get through this mini heatwave, it cost me £20.”

The creative homeowner lined the hole with two layers of blue tarpaulin and then filled it up so she can cool off during the hot weather.

Grace explained how she had also added chlorine to the water.
