During a lazy day, very few experiences can top floating on a swimming pool or lake on a nice and comfy floating pool lounger. Here are some models to choose from for your next watery holiday.
- Are pool floats swimming aids?
Answer: No they are not. They are also not life saving devices. They are designed primarily for leisure and entertainment purposes.
- What should I look for in a pool float?
Answer: It depends on who is going to use the float. If it’s for kids, then safety should be your primary concern. If you planning to have a party in water with your friends, then you should choose one that can accommodate several people. A cup holder is also a nice touch. Who doesn’t like to drink while floating in water?
- Are they durable?
Answer: It depends on the brand. As always, you get what you pay for so it is not a good idea to scrimp especially for something that you are going to use on water. You should get one with a repair patch in case an accident happens.
