Inground Swimming Pool Water Tubes Buyers Guide

One of the most important items you will need to close your swimming pool for the summer is something as simple as water tubes. These tubes play an extremely important part in keeping your above ground or in ground swimming pool secure over the winter months. Some swimming pool owners use things like soda bottles or other household items to hold down their cover but at some point during the winter your cover may come off. To prevent that from happening, offers a variety of water tubes that would work perfectly for your swimming pool.

In ground pool water tubes come in different sizes and either single or double wall. The length ranges from 2 feet to 10 feet. The water tube bags are an important part of the swimming pool closing so you want to make sure that you have the right tubes and not some cheap brand that will rip mid way through the season. has what you need. We provide a chart that will help you calculate how many water bags you will need to properly close your swimming pool. We only offer the stronger and most reliable water tubes; our bags are 18 Gauge and will not split or tear that some of the other lighter tubes on the market.

Corner Water Tubes

Sometimes holding down the corners of your swimming pool cover become difficult especially in small areas like the pool steps. It can be very frustrating to try to put straight water tubes on a straight edge corner or even on a rounded corner. We offer the solution with something called Corner Water Tubes. These durable L shaped tubes are 2 Ft x 2 FT and will securely hold the cover on your pool throughout the winter, saving you time and money when it comes to opening up your swimming pool in the spring. You many find other corner water tubes in stores but they will not be of quality as the ones we are have here. These tubes are created from a heavy duty vinyl that will not buckle under the harsh winter weather.

The Corner Water Tubes are really simple to use, simply fill up the corner bag only about three quarters of the way with your garden hose and then close the cap. It is recommended that you fill these up only three quarters of the way since the water will freeze and expand the corner tubes in the winter. By filling them to capacity will cause them to rip or possibly bust wide open when they expand from the freezing temperatures. The best part of the Corner Water Tubes from is that they are affordable. You can find them for a great price. You can order them right from our website today and have a stress free winter knowing that the corners of your steps and cover will be held down securely all winter long.

Single Water Tubes

Now that you have found a safe and secure way to hold down the corners of your in ground swimming pool, you are ready to secure the rest of the pool. One option we offer is the Single Water Tube. Our single water tubes are available in an 18-gauge vinyl, which is one of the strongest water tubes being sold today. offers two sizes an 8-foot and a 10-foot single water tube. You can choose either to close your pool but if you want to get the maximum benefit of these water tubes then you should measure the sides of the swimming pool and determine how many feet you need. For example, if the sides of your swimming pool were 20 feet then (2) 10-foot single tube water bags would be the best option rather than using (3) 8-foot bags.

Just like the corner water tubes, using your garden hose fill the single water tubes about three quarters of the way up and then close the cap. This will accommodate the water that will freeze in the winter, which will cause ripping and tearing. There is a trick to stopping that from happening. If you want to add more water then you may want to add a product called swimming pool anti freeze. This will prevent the water in the bags from freezing and keep the in ground swimming pool cover from freezing. offers the 8-foot and the 10-foot individual bags as well as a money saving 10 packs.  Single 8-foot water tube bags are sold and the 10-foot tubes are also sold individually at reduced prices. Save money with the 10 packs of 8-foot bags. Everything can be ordered right from the website.

Double Water Tube Bags

By choosing the double tube water bags you are getting a water bag that is made with about 33% heavier vinyl than single tube bags. Just the single and corner water bags are filled up; these double water tubes require a garden hose to fill them. They are made with a heavier material but it may still be a good idea to add some swimming pool anti freeze to them to prevent them from freezing up. It is recommended that you place the water bags near the edges of the swimming pool or about 18 inches away from the inside of the swimming pool edge. Placing them this way will get you better results.

Small animals over the winter may try to poke holes in the bags to drink the water etc. Place a feeder or a water bottle away from the pool to prevent animals from tampering with the water bags. Our Double Water Tube bags are available as single purchases or in money saving 10 pack. The Double Water Tube Bags are available in 8 foot and 10 foot bags. The 8-foot bags are sold individually and the 10 pack is also available.  Like our other bags, you can purchase them right here on our website.

With our water tubes you will have less stress over the winter by not worrying if your pool cover will come off from the weather or any other incidents that occur in the winter.
