I might be wrong but I think this is "picas"--stakes, and "gomas de tensado". This seems to be about the securing of a swimming pool cover. "Gomas de tensado" would be the rubber tensioners and the "picas" could be the stakes or spikes that secure the cover to the ground.

agree  Robert Carter: Yes, as you say, two separate things - "de tensado" relates to "gomas" only.
