Aquaria Foam Pool Floats

Luxury That Lasts

Aqua Cell Foam Features and Benefits

Aqua Cell closed-cell foam resists chipping and peeling, unlike vinyl-dipped floats.

Aquaria foam pool floats are made from the highest quality closed-cell foam that stands up to the harshest elements including sun, pool chemicals and salt water. So what does that mean exactly?

To start with, our closed-cell foam is not just a piece of foam with a vinyl coating as it’s only barrier to the water. Aqua Cell foam is molded, so right from the start it’s all in one piece and doesn’t get water logged.

Our foam resists chipping and peeling, never loses buoyancy, is lightweight, and the rich color permeates the entire float, not just the outside.

To top off your luxurious floating experience, Aquaria foam floats have a layer of Aqua Soft cushioning that cradles your body in comfort, on soft textured surfaces and over-sized pillows that help keep your head dry.

Our foam lounges range from 1.5 to 2.75 inches in thickness, and are available in a variety of gorgeous colors and styles, including floating lounges, floating chairs, durable foam pool noodles for adults and kids, and more. Check out the full Aquaria pool float line at

New to the line for the 2016 swim season are the Avena, Solana, and Swim Seat floats:

A Spooktacular SwimWays Halloween

In case you haven’t noticed, we LOVE Halloween here at Swimways! If you’ve been following us for a while, you may have seen some of the lengths we go to in creating our costumes. Some of us start planning our costumes a year in advance!

This year, however, we decided to shake things up a bit. Instead of our traditional Halloween costume contest, we hosted an office decorating contest. Each department decorated their space however they wished. The results were… impressive to say the least. Some people still dressed up, but this year’s focus was all about the décor.

Here’s a look at some of the creativity that went into Halloween this year, as well as some favorites from past years:


Fun in the Sun

Sun Protection for Kids

Pack Sun Protection Gear, Even if the Sun isn’t Out

According to the CDC, “Just a few serious sunburns can increase your child’s risk of skin cancer later in life.” Did you know that children don’t have to be outside enjoying the sand, surf or the pool, to get too much sun? It’s important to protect your child’s skin from the sun whenever she is outdoors. Even if it’s cool and cloudy out there, clouds do not block those harmful rays. When you want to spend time outdoors, plan ahead in case you’re outside longer than expected, be proactive and bring sun protection with you in a tote bag, this could be a hat, extra sunscreen, a long-sleeved t-shirt – or all of these items for maximum protection.
