finished baby pool moat

I wanted a moat that was inflatable so it wouldn't take too much space. A baby swimming pool is fine but it needs a lot of juice, so I came up with this.

Here is the process step by step.

The pools

Buy a large pool and a smaller one,the big one I used is 1.12m (44") in diameter.

cut top ring

The top ring is obsolete and can even interfere so I cut it off. (Make sure the rings are not interconnected and each has a separate valve.)

draw circle

Draw the outline of the inner pool, it makes it easier to apply the glue.

I used all-purpose cement but you can use Vinyl glue which is designated for inflatables. However since it's more expensive and durability is not an issue I went for the less expensive glue.

Apply glue on both sides and let dry for 10 min.

Place the inner pool in the marked circle, start from the middle and push outward so no air is trapped in between.

added glue

I applied some more glue just for good measure, and voila, you've got yourself an inflatable moat. The kid can stand inside the inner empty pool
