    Pool: Underwater block to stand on?

    Hi everyone I am not sure what is this called but is there such a thing to put something in the water so you can stand on it? If your small pool has only one plain level?

    If there is such a thing what is it called and where in amazon can you buy it? thanks!

    I'm not exactly sure what you are seeking, but this came to mind.

    We have them at the pool on the base where I work and they are literally rubber bricks and they definitely sink. If this is not what you are seeking then hopefully it at least inspires a solution. Best of luck.

    Thanks for replying!

    I like for a under water plastic block so you can sit on it or stand on it. Thanks for the link but like it bigger if posible like a sinkable plastic box. They have stools but its very expensive. I am sure there are something like this to put in your pool. It could be like an obstacle course.

    If it is an under water obstacle course you are after, we have swim through rings that sink and sometimes float suspended that we have a lot of fun with. There's also a water slalom hoop set both are available on Amazon. As for some sort of box/platform, how here's a few ideas; You could MacGyver something that may be suitable by zip tying plastic milk crates (or something similar) together and putting weights in them to keep them on the bottom? You can buy the crates in colors to suit your taste and they stack to add height. Zip ties come in all sorts of colors, lengths, and strengths as well. I'm thinking of something Lego-like that you may be able to tailor to suit your needs. (Plastic and modular) I'd avoid anything metal as it may rust. You could weight it down with the cheap plastic coated concrete barbel weights, the rubber bricks in the above post, or something similar that would be pool friendly. I got my kids a modular skate ramp that is heavy plastic so they can configure it to suit their desires without my assistance. The platforms (Box) on one of those may even be something that may suit your needs. We have the "Land Wave" brand. It is on Amazon if you want to give it a look. In all cases, I'd consider the potential to damage the pool (liner tear/puncture, concrete finish, etc), anything that may "leak" into the water and throw off the balance or induce undue hazards, and most importantly, safety of use.

    Given the lack of replies I'm guessing there's not much out there commercially available that is specifically designed for what you want, so it may take some ingenuity to find your solution. Hopefully these ideas will help light that fire.

    Take a look at this thread - is this what you had in mind?

    Or this, if you have a large budget:
    http://www.finisinc.com/equipment/pool- ... large.html
    POOL: Intex ultra new in 2014 (32 x 16 x 52) (seasonal; on concrete pad covered with 1.5" extruded or whatever foam insulation sheets - ugly, but comfy); added a through-wall skimmer; I add salt for feel. EQUIPMENT: Pentair SuperFlo pump (1HP, 2SPD); Pentair cartridge filter (200 sq. ft); Pentair MasterTemp natural gas heater (400,000 btu) Climate/Location: Eastern Nebraska
