Genconnect: Swimming: Where to keep pool floats

Storing pool floats properly can help extend their lifespan and keep your pool area organized. Here are some storage options and tips for pool floats:

  1. Storage Shed or Bin:

    • A dedicated outdoor storage shed or bin can protect pool floats from the elements.
    • Choose a shed or bin that is large enough to accommodate the floats and easy to access.
    • Make sure it's waterproof to prevent mold and mildew.
  2. Hanging Storage:

    • Hang the pool floats on hooks or hangers inside a shed, garage, or even on a wall near the pool.
    • This method can help the floats dry faster and prevent mold and mildew.
  3. Pool Float Rack:

    • There are specific racks designed to hold and organize pool floats.
    • These racks often come with multiple shelves or compartments and can be placed near the pool for easy access.
  4. Under-Deck Storage:

    • If you have a deck around your pool, consider creating a storage area underneath it for pool floats.
    • This is a convenient way to keep floats out of sight but still easily accessible.
  5. Storage Bags or Containers:

    • Use large storage bags or containers to keep pool floats organized and protected.
    • Make sure the bags or containers are breathable to prevent mold and mildew.
  6. Inside the Pool House or Garage:

    • If you have a pool house or garage, storing pool floats inside can help protect them from the elements and extend their lifespan.

Tips for Storing Pool Floats:

  • Clean and Dry: Before storing, make sure the pool floats are clean and completely dry to prevent mold and mildew.

  • Deflate: If possible, deflate the floats slightly before storing to save space and reduce the risk of damage.

  • Organize by Size: Store pool floats by size to make it easier to find and use them when needed.

  • Protect from Sunlight: Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause pool floats to fade and deteriorate. Store them in a shaded area or cover them with a tarp or protective cover.

  • Check Regularly: Regularly check the floats for any signs of damage or wear and tear. Repair or replace any damaged floats as needed.
