Thread: Inground anchors for umbrellas and v-ball

    Inground anchors for umbrellas and v-ball

    Has anyone ever placed ingroung anchors for umbrellas and v-ball nets. I am in the process of building a 20 x 40 inground sport pool 5 ft deep throughout. I would like to place anchors for umbrellas directly into the stamped concrete as it is going down. I have not been able to find an anchor that I can put in the concrete that has a top so water doesn't get in when I'm not using it. Any suggestions

    I thought the pipes they put into the ground were standard pvc. In that case they sell pvc dust caps

    if you can't find the dust caps you could always use a rubber plug although it wouldn't look pretty.

    The ones that I have appear to be white, opaque, silicone rubber stoppers. They are more of a plug I guess than a stopper.

    Welcome to TFP!!

    Who cares about water getting in? The regular ladder/ handrail anchors have drain holes in the bottom (admittedly most deck guys seal them, but they shouldn't - ask the deck dudes to leave the drain holes open - I can think of 3 easy ways to do this off the top of my head).
