How to inflate a pool float


If you ask us, there's nothing better than putting on your favorite swimsuit and taking a dip in the pool on a hot summer day. If you have a swimming pool or are fortunate enough to have access to one, you will want to maximise your time in the sun to have a great and comfortable pool float, such a great time you must not miss.


How to inflate a pool float


We thought so!


Aside from sunscreen, cold drinks and your best friend, a good quality pool inflatable mats is definitely a must-have for your relaxation in the pool. Fortunately, there are tons of fun pool floats to choose from, including options for kids, babies and even your furry friend. But what about adults?


If you're getting ready for the sunny season and looking for a great way to rest in the water - you've come to the right place! Read on for the best pool floats for adults to keep them cool all summer long. But one of the first things we thought was: how to inflate a pool float?


A pool float can only float in water when it is full of air. If you try to blow with your mouth, you also take a deep breath, cover the valve with your lips, and start blowing air into your giant inflatable butterfly pool float. But when you're done -- your bubbles are gone, the sun has receded behind the clouds, and you're completely out of breath and ready for a nap.


Instead of wasting time trying to blow up your pool float and giving your lungs a break, here are a few tips to quickly fix your pool float inflation problem.


1. Use an electric pump to inflate


Use an electric pump to inflate, and select the corresponding air nozzle according to the inflatable port of the pool body. Since the variable pump is driven by electricity, the inflation speed is faster than that of a large inflatable swimming pool. If it is a small pool float, it only takes dozens of seconds. The entire inflation process can be completed. If the electric pump becomes hot during the inflation process, it is recommended to stop the inflation immediately, and wait until the electric pump cools down before continuing to inflate. In addition, the electric pump can not only inflate, but also can be used to pump and deflate.


2. Use a hand pump, foot pump or bicycle pump


The old-fashioned way to go for an old-fashioned hand pump, foot pump, or bike pump. The main benefit of going this route is that you don't need electricity and can fill your favorite pool float almost anywhere. However, we will not lie. Manual pumping can be tedious and quickly tire your arms, so be sure to enlist the help of a friend to take turns pumping.


3. Use a hair dryer


This is a fun trick for those floaters with an idea. A hair dryer is another great way to blow away pool floats, but since it doesn't have a nozzle that fits into a plug, you'll need to hold it in place, which can be a bit tricky. However, if you have a water bottle, scissors, and tape, you can make this method a little easier.


All you have to do is cut off the top of a plastic water bottle and attach it to the end of the hair dryer with a bit of tape. Make sure to use the small spout side of the water bottle. The whole idea here is to funnel all the air from the blower through the nozzle of the water bottle (the part you drink from) into the inflator. This will allow the gas to enter the inside of the pool float well.


If you don't want to miss out on this wonderful summer, get in on the action and swim freely in the water with your pool float.
