The AquaBLAST® Suction Tether
Harness the power of nature!
The AquaBLAST® Suction Tether system, powered by ClingTech Bionics, is designed for use with AquaBLAST Punching and Fitness bags.
The tethering system uses a state-of-the-art suction cup from ClingTech Bionics that attaches to most swimming pool surfaces underwater using the Clingfish Effect™.
Modeled after the Northern Clingfish, a small fish capable of holding 300 times its body weight, the suction cup is designed to attach to rough and uneven pool surfaces.

AQUABLAST PUNCHING BAG SOLD SEPARATELY.
NOT ALL SWIMMING POOL TYPES ARE COMPATIBLE WITH THE SUCTION CUP. PLEASE REVIEW THE DOCUMENTATION AND CHECK WITH A POOL PROFESSIONAL PRIOR TO USE TO DETERMINE THE SUITABILITY OF THIS PRODUCT WITH THE POOL YOU INTEND TO USE.
Pool Surfaces Supported
Most commercial swimming pools use a plaster finish. Generally, vinyl, plaster, fiberglass, and concrete-based pools work well. The suction cup must create a complete seal around the area of attachment and the surface must be non-porous.
SMOOTH TILE POOLS ARE NOT SUPPORTED - LARGER TILE (6x6 INCHES AND LARGER) MAY BE SUPPORTED, BUT LARGE TILES WILL REQUIRE A ROUGH FINISH TO PREVENT THE SUCTION CUP FROM SLIDING.
In addition, extremely bumpy finishes, and some newer aggregate finishes, such as DiamondBrite, may have a porous finish and prevent the suction cup from adhering.
Please contact aquablastfit prior to purchase if you have questions about your pool surface.
Setting up the AquaBLAST Suction Tether system
First, set up the AquaBLAST® punching and fitness bag in the swimming pool.
Connect one end of the adjustable bungee included to the AquaBLAST 20L bag and the other end to the Clingfish Effect™ suction cup.
To attach the suction cup, stand in the swimming pool in 3 ½ - 5 feet of water. Press the suction cup to the pool floor with your foot. Be sure to press the suction cup down evenly from the top and to press out the water trapped under the suction cup.
TIP: PRACTICE ATTACHING & DETACHING THE SUCTION CUP TO THE SIDE OF THE POOL A FEW TIMES.
Disconnecting the suction cup
To release the suction cup, pull up on the small bobber with your toes or use the side of your foot to slide the bobber inward until it releases.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FORCE THE SUCTION CUP LOOSE BY PULLING THE BUNGEE CORD! DAMAGE MAY RESULT TO THE SUCTION CUP OR TO THE POOL FINISH.
Avoid touching the soft suction cup material as skin oils and debris may adhere to the surface and reduce the suction cup effectiveness. Rinse and periodically clean with a drop of dishwashing detergent and lukewarm water. Do not leave the suction cup submerged underwater for extended periods of time. Keep away from direct sunlight and store the suction cup unattached (not suctioned).
Swimming pool water should be maintained at generally accepted standards for public swimming pools. Unbalanced pool water may reduce the lifespan of the product. The suction cup is designed for the application described.
