What can you put under a blow up pool to keep it from getting holes from weeds

  • Sand. We always buy some sand and put it under. It also helps to keep it leveled.

  • We have one of those hard plastic ones like $30 for a semi big one at walmart in the garden section. Had it a few years now.

  • Put a tarp down then put sandbox sand evenly. Thats the way my friend does it and shes had her pool for 4 years now

  • If you do get a hole, you can go to the hardware store and buy "Waterbed repair patches" to fix it. You just clean around the hole, apply the patch (like a sticker) and give it a few hours to adhere properly before you refill it.
