I Dont know if anyone is looking to do or has been done but i just made my self a sandbag. Its a 4 ft sandbag and can weigh whatever you want. Mine right now is about 55 pds which i dont need but whatever lol i can lower it if need be but parts are a water bag for holding a pool liner and sand/gravel (I used gravel just incase i get a hole sand wont leak out). Thats it thats all you need. Total cost was $10.50

The 4 ft bag comes in 2 colors one black one blue. I used the black because its thicker. the black one was $6.00 and the 60pd bag of gravel was $4.50. I bought 2 black bags so i might make them 30pd bags.

This is it my pool store only had a 4 ft and 10 ft bag and nothing smaller. Some places sell smaller ones and square bags.

Hmm cool. I am going to look for them.


Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.

Im not sure how much sandbags usually cost but for the weight this has to be pretty good. I got the gravel at Home Depot for 4.50 or you can get the 60pd bag of sand for the same price and same isle.

This is just what I was looking into! Wish I found this yesterday because I'm shooting today and couldn't use my umbrellas because I had no way to weigh the stands down.

OK, cool... I was just looking for something along those lines and never thought to check a pool store.
