what keeps the water from freezing in the water tubes?
Hi, John. Freezing is accounted for, you will fill the tube 3/4 of the way to account for expansion when the water in the tube freezes.
1 to 2 hrs
This doesn't qualify as a repair - it was a great preventative! I laid the net out where I wanted it to go. I put the uninflated tubes through the loops in the net, and adjusted the positions of all until they were where I wanted them.
Then I used a garden hose to fill the tubes with water, and closed the plugs. The water tubes held the net in place, and I had no problem with leaves in the pool when I opened it in the spring.
Less than 1 hr
Single tubes tend to roll and tend to freeze and rupture. Found that the double tubes stay in place better. Double tubes need less water and don't rupture as easy as the single.
(2 out of 5 stars) Center seam is a weak point and unfortunately is a major leak point - probably a defect in the manufacturing process - heat seal.

Would I order these again? - No. Out of a package of 10, 5 leaked right out of the box. The center seam is the weak point. When the manufacturer does the heat sealing, it must be completely missing portions of the seam. Some holes were 1/4" while a couple were split about 6" long. Honestly would have given them the one star rating but the customer service was very gracious and they are sending me 5 replacement tubes. Based on the quality I don't they will make a second season up here in the northeast part of the US, with freeze / thaw potential.
