So you want to float, huh? Well, you've come to the right place. Did you know that our manufacturers inflate every single float to test its quality before packing it up to be sold? Did you also know that every single SUNNYLiFE float is designed in-house here in Australia by our incredible team of designers? I bet you didn't, but that's ok. We're here to tell you all about what makes a SUNNYLiFE float the best pick for you and your family!
Firstly, SUNNYLiFE floats use a thicker and more durable PVC than some of the lower priced floats on the market, meaning they will last longer and feel better to float on. Plus, the PVC we use is completely non-toxic, making our floats a safer option for you and your family. Last but not least, all of our Ride-On floats have an added air chamber for increased stability. This means you can avoid those float-fail moments that we all hate!
Wondering how to properly take care of this fabulous new inflatable?... Check out our Float Care Tips below and get the most out of your float friend!
Don’t Over Inflate Your Float.
The amount of air in your float will shrink and expand depending on a whole heap of factors, the weather being the biggest one. This means that heat from the sun will increase the amount of air in your float.
Unfortunately, if your float is already inflated to capacity and you take it out for a day in the summer sun, it will likely over inflate and get a hole in it.
When you are inflating your new float make sure you don’t get rid of all the wrinkles (they’ll go away eventually). Once inflated, the float should be firm but not hard to avoid damage and punctures.
Air Can Shrink in The Cold
Please keep in mind that the air in your float will also shrink in cold weather and water. For example, if you leave your new float friend out overnight you might wake up to find it looking a little droopy. This it totally normal, it just needs a bit of a pump up and you’ll be ready spend the day out on the water again.
Store Your Float In A Dry, Cool Place.
Most of our floats are made from super durable 0.20-0.30mm, Phthalate free PVC that can withstand some pretty crazy weather. However, even the hardiest of materials don’t like being exposed to the elements 24/7.
We recommend that once you’re done enjoying your float, you deflate it (our pumps can help with that), dry it off, and store in a cool, dry place.
Keeping your float inflated over night won’t be a disaster, but we recommend that you avoid storing them in direct sunlight for long periods of time. This way, your new float friend can hang around for as long as possible!
Keep Your Float Clean
Salt and chlorine can have a detrimental effect on most materials, so we recommend that you give your float a rinse off in fresh water after use and put it out to air dry. No soap needed, just keep it simple and your new float friend will stay looking brand-new for much longer.
