Does dipping in an above-ground pool, that sits atop of padding on top of the lawn, satisfy the requirements for a Men’s Mikveh?

  • It has to be pure rainwater of 40 se'ah.

    Can you better define what you mean by "the requirements for a Men’s Mikveh"? In most regards, men and women have the same rules regarding mikvaot (Zav is one notable exception)

  • It depends on how the water is being put in and handled. Jul 23, 2020 at 15:36

It should work, since men do not have to go to the mikvah at all today and if men want to go its only as a minhag like erev rosh hashana, yom kipper or tifalas keri. The mikvah tha you discribed is a kli and it makes it שאובים. The Mishina Bruah says in 'סימן פח ס'ק ד that you can use מים שאובים for these kinds of tevilos.

  • You may be able to use mayim sheuvim, but how do you know that טבילה בכלי is ok?

  • It's also not true that men only go to the mikvah as a minhag.
