Types of Pool Floats and Noodles

With so many types of pool floats and noodles on the market these days, it can be hard to choose the right one. Let's take a look at the main categories.

Pool Noodles

Not everyone is looking for a pool float to lay on. Sometimes you just need a little floating support so you can join in on some pool games or have the flexibility to swim around while lounging. A pool noodle is the perfect pool accessory for just such an occasion! These simple, cylindrical tubes have been a staple of swimming pools for decades.  Don't be fooled by their simple design, pool noodles are incredibly versatile. You can use them for flotation, water games, and even exercise. They also come in a variety of colors, sizes, and materials.

Pool Floats

From whimsical designs to luxurious floating loungers, there is something for you and every family member. Kids will love the colorful designs, while adults can relax on comfortable large floats that can hold up to 400 lbs.!

Pool Hammocks

If you want something stylish, comfortable, and portable, a pool hammock is the perfect choice! They provide the same relaxing experience as a float but in a convenient, easy-to-carry package. Instead of carrying around a large pool float from one place to another, a pool hammock allows you to roll it up, taking up much less space.

Choosing the Right Floats and Noodles for Your Needs

When selecting your floats and noodles there are a few things to think about, whether you are buying for the family or for commercial use. A few minutes now can save you some trouble later.

If you are buying pool floats for younger children or for commercial use like a hotel pool, you'll want to look for products known for their durability. Check the thickness and weight limits of all floats. Making sure your pool floats and noodles can support people of all sizes will help make your pool time fun for everyone. You also want to make sure your pool accessories are made from marine-grade fabrics to ensure they stay as clean and as easy to maintain as possible.
