Create Your Play Pond in 3 Simple Steps
First, using your pliers, remove the drip pan’s PVC drain fitting. Insert a rubber stopper in its place.
Next take the 26″ water drip pan and place it on a level surface in your yard. Backfill soil or sand around the sides of the pan to create a stable base.
Lastly, fill the pan with water, add floating toys such as boats and rubber ducks! Remember, young children should always have adult supervision while playing in the pond.
Consider the area you choose to build your pond near, if your child already has an outdoor play set, you may want to put in near there! Give your kids an area in their yard they will enjoy for years to come, whether you build your own play pond area, install a swing set, or even make your own sand box!
