The Sunnylife Guide: How to Care for Your Float
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.
Sun and heat will increase the amount of air in your float. If it’s completely inflated and you spend a glorious day on the water in the summer sun, your float friend will probably overinflate and get a hole somewhere.
When you’re inflating make sure you don’t get rid of all the wrinkles (they’ll eventually go away). The float should be firm, but not hard.
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 float friend out overnight you might wake up to it looking a little droopy. That’s totally normal. It just needs a bit of a pump up and you’ll be ready spend the day together again.
Store your float in a dry, cool place.
Most of our floats are made from super durable 0.20-0.30mm, 6P Free (meaning free of any Phthalate nasties) PVC that can weather some pretty crazy, well, 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 dry, cool 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 so your float can hang around for a few seasons!
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 out to air dry. No soap needed, just keep it simple and it’ll stay looking brand-new for much longer.
