We built the rings to specifications and they float.

Should we just add weight to them or is the poly rope

smaller than 3/4"? Our rings weight 100 grams out of the water

and 5 grams in the water.

Anyone else seeing this?

We found a fix..by adding a second 1.5" piece of copper over the first one.

Having a hard time imagining what went wrong here.  What length did you cut the line to before joining?  We taped and cut to 18", slid the 3.4 coupling over the line, heated the ends with a propane torch and welded them together.  Then slide the sleeve over the joint and you don't have to bother crimping the sleeves.

We had a problem with the rings floating as well.  Then we realized it was because they were dry.  It seems that once the rings sit in the water for a bit, they absorb some, and sink down to the bottom.  We haven't had a problem since.  I let the rings dry out over the weekend, and throw them back into the tank on Monday.  They float for a bit, then sink on down to the bottom!
