The Pool Float Buying Guide

Gliding across the glassy surface of perfect pool water, basking in the warmth of the sun … is there any better way to spend a summer day? Pool floats have become exceptionally versatile – perfect for kids who are ready to play, parents who are ready to relax and everyone in between. They’re a necessity for a summer spent poolside … the only question is which one is right for you? When shopping for a pool float, you’ll discover an incredible variety of designs, construction styles and materials. You’ll find floats that let you sit up or recline, cool off in the water or stay nice and dry. With so many choices, the only thing left to wish for is an endless summer.

Foam Floats, Chaises and Noodles

Thick and luxurious, our foam floats, chaises and noodles are incredibly buoyant and supportive. Crafted from the highest quality marine-grade closed-cell foam, they can be used in saltwater or chlorinated pools, and they won’t sink if punctured. The triple-dipped vinyl coating comes in a wide array of colors and is resistant to cracking, fading or peeling. Plus, they’re quick drying, easy to clean and a cinch to store during the off-season.

Resort Pool Float

The newest addition to the Frontgate float family incorporates all the key features of our legacy floats with a classic profile. Its 2 inches of coated, cushy foam make it supportive and unsinkable, yet it remains quite flexible, allowing you to comfortably lie back and soak in the sun for hours. (Just don’t forget the sunscreen.)

World’s Finest Pool Chaise

Bring the pure relaxation of lounging in a chaise right into the pool. Our World’s Finest Pool Chaises have adjustable backs that move from upright to angled to flat … so you can read, chat or just drift. Padded armrests with built-in cupholders and a supportive headrest add a little touch of luxury.

Noodles & Planks

You haven’t seen a pool noodle like this – thick and oversized, it resists sun, salt and chlorine, so you can enjoy it year after year. The versatility of our plank allows for multiple options when it comes to relaxing.
