Default Anchoring a Water Trampoline

Wednesday's storm was the last straw for my 12 year old chain used to attach my cement anchor block to my water trampoline. It had corroded down to wafer thin. Unfortunately, my father, who has since passed on, installed this anchor block so I have no idea how heavy it is. I plan to visit Watermark this weekend and pick one up, but just curious how heavy those of you with water trampolines think it needs to be and if you have any alternative ideas.

Thanks.

We have ours anchored to a 500 pound concrete block. It was put in place by a diver using an airbag to get it in the correct location. All stainless steel chain and hardware.

Default Call John Baxter...JB Dive Services

....I would suggest don't mess around....Call John....He'll dive and remove the old stuff; properly size the concrete block you need based on the size and weight of the tramp; and will install it all with stainless steel chain and hardware. He can also provide seasonal services to put it out and take it in for you. Great guy; have been a customer of his for years

So Rather then getting another concrete block, I suggest calling a Dive service such as the one mentioned here, and re-use the old block.... it is likely just fine....
