A Bit Expensive, But VERY NICE !!
Came Across this While Just web surfing ,decided to order one for My Wife to use, i think buying a second one is in order. Everything came as promised, however, ours lacked any form of use & care instructions, or mention of a warranty on it. The website for product has most of the info. but does lack some information - I'm going to call Them on un-answered questions. The air pump included, makes fast work of both inflating & deflating - take care not to inflate too firm, the sun causes heat & extra pressure - take care, & you shouldn't get leaks. Getting off it is a bit tricky if you get stuck to it. We found out keeping a plastic cup in the cup holder to scoop up & splash water on yourself aids keeping you cool - it can get a bit hot & also when the float is wet under you helps one get off it easier. Very comfortable to lay on - My Wife & I each spent an hour on it in the water with no complaints. She was skeptical of its size at first, but forgot all about it once She got relaxed on it. The single air chamber for the whole lounge is great for fast fill & deflate, but 3 air chambers would be better for water saftey - one for each of the sides & one for the mattress portion in the middle. If one of the sides would get an unexpected leak, the whole lounge will lose air. I know this product is fairly new to the market & one has to start somewhere, there is always room for change. haven't used in a pool, just on our deck & in a lake. I came up with My own means to anchor a person safely to keep from drifitng away in open water, which is easily possible due to wind. A round 5 pound weight lifting weight, some 1/4" diamater nylon rope (chose the length of desire), two small swivel snaps, & a short length of pool float noodle. tie & double knot the rope through the swivels, heat knotted rope with a flame to prevent knots coming un-done. Loop one end through the hole in the weight & use the snap to complete the loop. Other end - feed the piece of pool noodle through the snap & make a loop to hang onto while on the lounge - the pool noodle keeps the rope afloat should you drop it - it works pretty slick, even though you have to hang onto it - bit it beats drifting off where you don't want to go. Take care of it, don't abuse it & it should give a lot of use! We didn't have to great a summer here but wished I'd found this sooner, can't wait to use it again when the conditions allow. I would recomend this to anyone - it is a bit more expensive than most pool floats but there is NO other like it ! Given its cost, & our use experience with it so far feel it's worthy of a 5 star rating. The person who came up with this idea & made it reality - Our hat's off to Her !
