Might wanna think of a better method of securing it to the ground .
The problem was that I put a big tarp over the mount/tripod, and the tarp became a sail that harnessed the power of the wind, enough to tip the whole assembly over, into the pool. Solution: no more tarp!

I've had a mount blow over before too. I don't think I'd forgo a tarp/cover just because rain is probably more dangerous than the random gusty winds.
The coolest thing I've seen to solve this kind of problem is to sink an anchor like you'd see on a child's playground. Then, use ratchet straps to attach the scope. It won't go anywhere.
Best solution is to sink a pier .
