How much soil does it take to fill a kiddie pool?

For 1 kiddie pool, you’ll want to buy 1 cubic bag of mulch, 1 cubic bag of compost or container soil, and 1 cubic bag of steer manure. I filled the bottom of each pool with compost from my Earth Machine compost bin. It doesn’t matter if it’s completely decomposed since it’ll continue breaking down later.
