use ear plugs. My three nieces and one nephew all had tubes put in. They all wear ear plugs when swimming. my one sister's pediatrician made them custom fit to the kids ears ear plugs for swimming. Her son, got them when he was 22 months and they are just now starting to fall out. My younger sister used plugs when bathing her daughter, she hasn't had the tubes more than a year and one is already falling out, and one already fell out. they all have had no problems with water getting in.
