Inflatable Pool Floats and Lounges for Overweight People


Inflatable Pool Floats for Heavy People

Enjoying a pool is fun for everyone. But for some people it can cause awkwardness. Overweight people require special pool accessories to enjoy the pool like everyone else. People with regular weight don’t even think about it when they lay back and float on their pool lounge splashing and paddling with their feet in the water.

But for heavy weight people, the regular pool lounge will fold, sink and the person on them will go overboard unwillingly to the water. Most pool floats were not designed to float with 250 pounds on them.

Inflatable Pool Lounge For Heavy People

There are some pool lounges which where designed to be able to carry larger weights. They have better ability to float and stay leveled even when they are used by overweight people. These pool floats usually have heavy duty handles, steel frame and durable PVC. These are not cheap plastic inflatable tubes, but real comfortable floating sofas.

Check each of the three options below, each of them will carry and support overweight swimmers. Some of them have the max weight in their product description, others have other customers answer about their weight capabilities.
