  • Part of the beauty of the Pool Buoy is the fact when in use you're under it. Literally- arms length.

  • If it gets gusty, grab the pole.

  • A boat goes by too close, grab the pole. You get the picture.

#2 Adjust The Height

    • The umbrella ideally is about 6 inches above your head. Again, the product needs to keep you out of the sun.

    • Best way to keep you out of the sun... have the umbrella cast the shadow over you and those underneath.

    • The lower the umbrella is adjusted, the better the shade.

#3 Get Out Your Leash

  • When your done floating, take the Pool Buoy out too. 

  • That's why the product is so lightweight and easy to assemble.

  • It has no use floating around without people underneath. 

#5 Use It Anywhere & Often!  Take it apart and use the pieces independently!

Pool Buoy can be used in it's original form in any water (beach, lake, pool, spa, etc.).   
    But, take it apart and you can use just the table as a drink buoy; take the umbrella on the beach or take it's weight off and bury it for some shade in the surf.
