Cruise Through Summer With This New Motorized Pool Float

Amy Pilkington 7 Apr 2019

At the risk of embarrassing myself, I'll admit this upfront: I can't swim.

Oh, I've tried to learn. My parents spent plenty of money and time on lessons, but this girl just wasn't meant to be buoyant.

So when my family moved into a house with a pool, I was 100% pro-pool float.

For the most part, floaties haven't changed much.

New shapes and high-tech plastics can't really hide the fact that it's just a sturdy balloon.

And it's impossible to get on or off of one elegantly.

This new pool float from PoolCandy doesn't solve that bit of awkwardness, but it does have one big upgrade: motors.

It's such a pain to get on and off a floatie that once you're comfy, you don't want to move again until you have to.

But what if you float into a cold, shaded corner, or need a refill on your drink?

Enter the Splash Runner Duel Motor Powered Pool Lounger. This pool float with an oddly long name has two motor-powered propellers that can maneuver you to the perfect sunny spot.

You control the motion with a pair of joysticks.

360-degree control means that you can back up, move forward, or even shift side to side easily.

And, of course, it has a cupholder, so if you set your cooler at the edge of the pool, you could get a refill without leaving the chair.

The lounger is built to hold up to 300 pounds.

I particularly like this image of the floatie in a small lake, which seems like the perfect place for the product. Some home pools may be too small to merit the motors, but cruising around the lake sounds incredible!
