Buying Guide

Nothing says relaxation better than a solitary figure lying peacefully in the pool in a styrofoam pool float, drink in hand and sporty sunglasses off the nose. You can be the envy of your neighbors while lounging in a comfortable pool float and better appreciate your time to relax. These wonderful gadgets are great to have, not just for function but also for their durability, long wear and ease of storage. The right pool float can be your best pool accessory and provide great value.

What makes a great foam pool float is its thin design that lets you be closer to the water to induce heightened calm mood and relaxation. These items are manufactured of soft foam typically covered by vinyl. This increases durability and wear because even if punctured, the device will still float. So with this item, there is no need to worry about your kids roughhousing in the pool and damaging the float. Foam pool floats can last for years.

For a good foam pool float, expect to spend around $100. In this case, as in everything, you get what you pay for. So it might be worth a little extra time considering your desired options in a pool float when making the purchase. You can even consider it an investment because a good styrofoam pool float can last many years if well maintained. Styrofoam pool floats can be purchased either where you buy your pool supplies or at a specialty online store.

The most popular option is a cup holder on either side of the float, but floats are also available with pocket sleeves, for those who wish to read while enjoying pool time. Also, styrofoam pool floats are available in various sizes and shapes as well. You can choose a two-seater for couples fun and intimacy, or even a family-sized float, for family cohesion during pool time and also the ability to keep a keen eye on the kids while in the pool while enjoying your private time as well.

Because they're thin, styrofoam pool floats make storage easy. They can be folded and stored in any corner of your garage or wherever you happen to normally store your pool accessories. While it typically takes about 24 hours to dry out foam, during the summer with increased use, some pool owners may want a handy storage rack to store one or multiple floats and keep everything handy in one spot.

For summer fun and relaxation, a styrofoam pool float is a perfect companion for years of pool enjoyment experience.
