i don't see why it wouldn't work..unless the lining has some kind of chemical applied
i'm slowly working on getting an 8' intex "ring" type pool setup (in the basement), but just had to fix the car so it got the $ priority

That should prove to be fun. Sometimes I wish we had basements here in FL for that reason! LOL

i'd rather be doing it outdoors, but our season is just too short for it without a greenhouse

Outdoors is nice too, but the pests and weather are just terrible sometimes.

A friend of mine has a high end KOI business buys the 3000 gal set ups with pump from target for $ 200 he said they last about 3years of use before they start to leak. If you looked at targets and compared the ones at Sam's. It might help you. He has a dozen set up as transfer tanks. Of course protect the bottoms. Weeds can puncture them, like oak tree seedlings.

I always wondered about the above ground pools too. UF...Now that it's getting pretty hot here, heck with the fish....I would most likely end up swimming in it, if I bought one.... :lol:

I saw some in Aquatic-eco's catalog. They are pretty costly, but they have a 20 year warranty. Maybe you could get one of their liners, when this one started to age (?)

that is a lot.. the 8' pool i'm trying out is, i think 696 gallons at the "fill line"
best use of space will be IBC's cut in half.. still thinking about a sump, probably a 3rd IBC, but no height to work with whatsoever!.. that's my biggest challenge (i have constant "goose-eggs" all over my noggin from working in the basement, i'm a hair shy of 6')
trying to figure out the tank wall penetration right now, probably go with 1.5"..
