+1 I use a 10 lb weight and a brick covered in plastic. I have one set of steps that never float and another that is very hard to keep down. The brick seemed to solve the problem and the five year old can stand on the bottom step and keep her head above water.We use several plastic-coated barbell weights ... 14 lbs or so each?
(Yeah, obviously not doing much strength-training in the hawkins3 household right now)
Hey, you have the same steps as me. I also cut several holes for circulation and I also cut a hole big enough to fit 1" pipe (I think) so I can hook a vaccum hose up to the steps so it will pull water through them. How many pounds of weight do you have holding the steps down?Check the link in my signature block. It leads to pictures and instructions on how me made our step weights. We've switched from sand in capped PVC tubes to concrete this year.
