Features of the Spring Float Recliner

1. Patented Inner Spring

SwimWays Spring Floats are the only floats on the market with a patented inner spring. What’s so great about the spring and why would you want one?

Spring Floats provide greater stability and support in the water.
The inner spring is sewn into the float around the outside edge of the float under the fabric cover. You don’t actually feel the spring while you are on the float – it’s just there doing its job to support you in the water, making your floating experience more stable and comfortable.

Spring Floats are storage- and travel-friendly.
When folded as shown below, the Spring Float Recliner folds itself into three compact rings, making this a great pool float for travel. The float is lightweight so you can toss it in your luggage or pool bag and still have room to spare for all your travel necessities. With the Spring Float Recliner, you’ll always have a comfy pool seat wherever you go!

2. Fabric-covered Inflation and a Soft, Cooling Mesh Seat

Like all SwimWays Spring Floats, the Spring Float Recliner has a fabric cover over the top of the inflation. The fabric cover adds durability to the float, is comfortable to lay on, and keeps you cool in the sun because it doesn’t heat up as much as plastic inflatables.

The soft mesh seat suspends your lower body just below the surface of the water, helping you to stay cool, and extends up and over the backrest, adding more comfort to your floating experience.

3. Integrated Backrest, Ottoman, and Cup Holder

Kick back and relax on the supportive backrest, prop your feet up on the ottoman, and stash your favorite cold beverage in the cup holder. The Spring Float Recliner is great for floating along and chatting with friends, reading, or just letting your body sink into the float allowing the hurry of everyday life to drift away.

The opening between the seat and ottoman makes it easier to get onto the float, and you can also slip your feet into the water when you want to cool them off without having to change positions.

4. Jet Valve Inflation

The jet valves on the Spring Float Recliner make inflation and deflation fast and easy. You won’t need an air pump or lungs of steel to inflate this float!

5. Sizes and Styles for Everyone

The Spring Float Recliner supports adults up to 250 pounds and is approximately 56 inches long, 38 inches wide, and 17 inches tall. (Size may vary slightly depending on the amount of inflation.)

If you like a little extra room in your pool float, try the Spring Float Recliner XL. It’s the same as the original, only it has more legroom, a wider seat, and supports adults up to 300 pounds. Dimensions of the Spring Float Recliner XL are approximately 61 inches long, 44 inches wide, and 20 inches tall.

For those that prefer some added sun protection, the Spring Float Recliner with Canopy has a removable canopy to help keep your upper body in the shade.

6. A Family of Floats

Not only is the Spring Float Recliner a great floating lounger, but it’s part of a much bigger Spring Float family! Explore more styles of Spring Float at SwimWays.com. We have styles for babies, kids, teens, adults and even the family dog!
