Are Children's Pools Fish Safe?

Post by Edward Fishe » Sat, 19 Apr 2003 14:49:11



I need to move my gold fish and koi from their current ponds into a temp.
holding area while I put in a new pond.  I was thinking of getting a
children's pool but I'm worried about the plastic liner/material not being
fish safe.  I plan on keeping the fish in the temp. holding area for about a
week.

Does anyone have experience using these children's pools?


Thanks.

I have two kiddie pools that I have used to keep my fish
when cleaning the ponds or doing work that requires the
water to be lowered.  One warning, be sure to cover the pool
- fish will often jump when in new surroundings.  Also keep
the pool shaded so that the water doesn't get overheated by
the sun.

I have used both the Plastic preformed Kiddie pools and the blow up one.I
feel safer with the performed.I would definitely net the pool for jumping
fishes.I also gave it a good rinsing before filling
