A Cup holder For Your Drinks


You want to stay hydrated, right? And no one likes having to crawl in and out of the pool to grab that drink. Or worse yet must spend your relaxation or pool party time holding on to that drink for dear life. So, making sure that your pool floats have a cup holder may be something to think about. 


Portability So You Can Take It Anywhere


You want a pool float that is easy to deflate and store. This means looking for one that is easy to transport. Plus, who says you will only be hanging at your pool. Maybe you will hit up the beach or the lake and want to take your favourite float (or your kid’s favourite float) with you.


Portability is also a good thing to check out when dealing with the ring style of float that way you can easily get in and out of the water with no problem.


Support For Your Body


Even though pool floats were originally constructed for use by children (and they still can be) if you are an adult you will want to check out the support. This means getting a pool float that is big enough to support your body.


Sturdy Material That Won’t Rip or Break


This is especially an important factor when you are a big kid looking for a fun pool float. You will need to look for a float designed for adults so that the material used to produce it will be able to handle the extra weight. Se great fabrics that do this are nylon or vinyl.


Multiple Air Chambers So You Don’t Sink If A Puncture Occurs


Now with all the fun aside the devices were originally intended as safety tools. That means making sure they can do their job while still looking fabulous is a must. So, when you are looking for your pool float you may want to look for ones that have multiple air chambers. It may take a little while longer (and possibly a tank of oxygen) to blow up but you will be okay with that id one of the air chambers pops while you are snoozing while floating. 


A Repair Kit For If A Puncture Occurs


If you want that cute pool float to last you will definitely want to consider ones that come with a repair kit. This will extend the life of your favourite unicorn float so that you will be able to be the cool kid for a few more summers.
