I am putting in soak-er hose in the bottom of my rafts. As I am putting this in I am having trouble keeping them on the bottom becasue they float up. I tried sand in plastic snack bags and will try quart bags next.

I was wondering if I could use lead weights with fishing line to hold the hose down but I am affraid of the lead leaching into my water.  Does anybody know if lead will leach?

Is there any ideas you all might have to keep the hose down?

Herd back from another friend and he uses soak-er hose with no problems. He also uses re-bar in PVC with caps so nothing gets out and uses ties to the pipe. I will use re-bar and maybe do the PVC with caps and give it a try. Thanks all who replied.
