    Alternative to water tubes

    Hi, my pool is pretty much closed except for one part. The deck is right up against the pool so I couldn't wrap the plastic wrap around that part of the pool (wrapped it around ended the deck to ensure plastic wrap is tight). This means that this means the winter cover isn't 100%secure around the deck.

    I've seen the water tubes online but they all have abysmal reviews. I thought about using sandbags but they are surprisingly expensive and hard to find in my area. Does anyone know of any alternatives to water tubes or anything else I can use as a sand bag? Thanks!

    They make plastic trays, kind of like long planters with lids, that can be placed down on the cover instead of water bags. They are mildly more difficult to store over the summer, but have several advantages during the winter.
