I have a solid winter cover aka tarp. It’s held in place with a set of double water bags. While they work ok, they seem to be a lot of hassle. Almost none of them hold water in two compartments over winter. Some of them lost the water in a matter of days. They collect a lot of dirt under and around. And they a lot of PIA to fill, refill and to deflate.
I was wondering if anyone come up with some good alternatives for them? I know there is a safety cover, but I’m only thinking about how to secure a regular solid cover in place with something else rather than the bags? I have some cinder blocks hanging around and while they are heavy enough for the job, they have sharp edges that would wear the tarp quickly. Also it would require either a lot of cinder blocks or I would need some kind of planks that could be positions on the side of the tarp and then cinder blocks could go on top.
Anyone has anything to share on this subject?
