Mother of Seven Constance Hall has puzzled her millions of fans by posting a photo of her family’s do-it-yourself spa, with many parents pointing out that the $ 530 design entails significant risks for her one-year-old son.
The 36-year-old from Perth, Western Australia, admitted that she “always wanted a pool,” lowered her dreams and settled in an outdoor pool that her tribe could enjoy during the summer months.
But not everyone thought it was such a good idea to have her 18-month-old son Raja around a body of water.
“I’ve always wanted a swimming pool, but the older I got, the more I became aware and apparently they are hard at work,” Constance wrote in the original post to her 1.3 million followers.
Constance described their house as settled on a “small block” and said that her family – including Billie-Violet, Arlo-Love, twin Rumi and Snow, and Raja, as well as stepchildren Zeyke and Sunny – already have a pond full of fish but she just wanted ‘something to jump in’.
Mother of Seven Constance Hall has sounded alarm bells with her followers, with some saying she should be more careful around the outdoor pool with her children

Mothers soon pointed out the potential problems with having an outdoor pool around small children in the Facebook commentary.
‘Please always forget to tap it. This and the fishing pond worries me that Raja is walking around and is so small! said a woman.
“Children drown so quickly and it’s scary, so I understand why we have laws to keep the children safe. I’m sure she’s watching Raja, but it’s the one time they just disappear, “the other said.
But Constance assured them that although she’s naturally free of mind, she doesn’t take any risks when it comes to having her little ones in the water.

How did she create the outdoor pool?
* The second bath was $ 100
* The wood for the deck was $ 150
* The pipes were $ 50 and the joinery was $ 40
* The gold faucets were $ 140
* The stain for the wood was $ 50
Total: $ 530
“The pond has a fence around it and I always drain the bath as soon as everyone is outside,” she replied.
She added that she makes herself extremely “anxious” in situations involving swimming and her seven children.
Earlier, Denim told Constance that traditional spas require chlorine testing and can get “decent rank,” which sounded “pretty scientific” to the well-known mother.
“Most spas even look like sperm collection once you know what’s going on in them,” she added.
Denim told her that traditional spas require chlorine testing and can become “pretty high,” which all sounded “pretty scientific” to the free-spirited mother
Apart from this, keeping a spa outside is very expensive.
So instead, they started saving for an outdoor pool that could act as a ‘spa’ if you stopped the drain, with Denim more than happy to take control of the craftsmanship.
Constance shared a photo of the result and said the best part of the ‘spa’ was the price – because they had only given up $ 530 for the entire renovation.
“The second bath was $ 100, the wood for the deck was $ 150, the pipes were $ 50, and the connections connecting the pipes to the taps were $ 40,” she said.
They splashed on the golden faucets, which were $ 140, and the stain for the wood was a reasonable $ 50.
The family house is a hippie oasis and many followers hoped that Constance would now share more photos of it
The drain runs to the garden and provides their drought-stricken backyard with water, while at the same time cleaning the children.
“I’m so proud of my husband … Bathtime has become so much more fun,” she said.
Her fans were surprised at the updated deck and many of them shared images of their own designs.
“I did the same with a cast-iron ball foot bath. It is so large and luxurious and only cost me $ 60 on Gumtree. I fill it with the garden hose and it runs in the garden … it’s the best ever, “wrote a woman.
“Dammit! My father and mother have just lost an old corner bath. That’s a fantastic idea, “said another.
A third added: “I love how limitations make us resourceful and imaginative! Looks nice!’
