Different use for a Kiddy Pool

This is the first time I have seen a contractor use a kiddy pool for concrete washout. I like how they placed plastic on the bottom so they can easily clean it out for reuse.

Concrete Pour

Always fun to watch someone else working. Photo: David Jenkins

Here we are constructing a large stormwater pond. To keep vegetation from growing and attracting birds (dangerous to aircraft) the bottom is covered with concrete, the sides will be covered with heavy plastic liner, and the whole thing will be covered with a net. Frequently, on large concrete pours, we specify that there be no truck washout on site, both to speed things up and to avoid concrete mess everywhere.
