Pool Floats Buying Tips

If you own a swimming pool or travel to the lake or ocean during summer you probably have seen pool floats being used. Pool floats are floating mattresses made from buoyant materials. Since 2003 we have been offering pool floats from different manufacturers and we often receive questions from customers on how to make a choice. This guide will help you understand different pool floats and hopefully decide what suits your needs best.

Choose a type of pool float. Pool floats are available in three main categories: foam, inflatable, and canvas. They all serve the same purpose but there are pros and cons for each choice.

Foam pool floats are made with closed cell synthetic foam. While choosing a foam pool float, consider the thickness and size of the float.The thicker the float, the more buoyant it will be.

Inflatable Pool Floats: These are vinyl products that are inflatable and are widely available.

Canvas Pool Floats: This category is the newest of our floats. Canvas pool floats are made with 100% acrylic fabric and have buoyant beads inside. They look like beanbags that float.
