No matter how hard you try, it's impossible to sink in boilers, the explanation lies in the pressure created by a phenomenon called upwelling of the waters, which prevents the body from sinking. This is because under the pool there is a water table and just below it is an impermeable rock. Without finding an outlet in the rock, the water rises and gushes out with force, pushing the sand up.
