In The Swim Knowledge Pool: Pool Cover Water Tubes
Water Tubes are an affordable way to secure your solid inground pool cover or winter pool cover. Water Tubes are vinyl water bags filled 2/3 full of water and laid on top of the edges of your inground pool cover. Double tubes lay flatter than single tube water bags to avoid rolling on sloped pool decks, and are still usable if one chamber gets popped. Pinholes or tears in water tubes can be repaired easily with Flexible Sealer.
Winter water bags work as pool cover weights to hold your cover down against snow, rain and wind to prevent debris from blowing into the water. Water tubes can also be used with safety covers, to keep debris from blowing under the edge. As an alternative to pool water bags, see our unbreakable Aqua Blocks, plastic containers that will never leak, and stack for easy summer storage.
