I used to use a kiddie pool, then I made my wood bath instead. Main advantage is it is much more efficient. Unless you have a round frame, a kiddie pool is the wrong shape, so lots of wasted space (wasted materials, doubles the amount of OA you will use, etc). I use a couple of layers of the blue tarp material as a liner. Last time I used it, it took 30 gallons of water, and 12 ounces of oxalic acid.
I made mine out of scrap OSB. This is a 24 inch Nishiki International frame.
