If you have a pool, chances are you own at least a few inflatable pool toys and swimming pool floats. An inflatable swimming pool float lets you lounge in the pool without fear of drowning or having to keep your head above water. Keeping these items by the pool or on a shelf in a garage or shed is okay when you're using them frequently. However, leaving them lying around between summers can cause them to deteriorate. The inflatable pool floats must be properly stored when pool season ends so that it can be used again when the pool reopens. The float can be stored inflated, deflated or placed into a bag for safekeeping. This article mainly introduces the tips for pool toys and inflatable products storage.
Prevent the growth of mould and mildew by cleaning pool toys and inflated pool floats.
1) A solution of 125 ml of vinegar or bleach mixed with 4 litres of cold water
2) One cup of baking soda for every 4 litres of cold water.
3) If you choose to use a bleach solution, wear rubber gloves and goggles to protect your skin and eyes.
Dip a scrubbing brush into the cleaning solution and lightly scrub each item. Use a hose to rinse off any leftover solution, and then leave toys and inflatables in the shade to air dry. Deflate pool inflatables only once they're fully dry.
Inflatable swimming pool toys take up a lot of space. The advantage is that they’re easy to condense. The disadvantage is that some of them can be really difficult to deflate. The easiest way to get the deflation job done is by either using a pump with deflation capabilities or by using a drinking straw. After you get them deflated, gently fold them up so that you can easily stack and store them in any container.
To prevent the sides of an inflatable from sticking together in storage, coat the entire surface with a thin layer of talcum powder or cornstarch. Once large inflatables have been deflated and dusted, lay them on a flat surface and gently fold or roll them up.
If possible, store inflatables in their original packaging, otherwise place them in individual boxes, plastic containers or zip-up storage bags. Choose storage bins or mesh bags for small toys, goggles, snorkels and inflatable water guns.
To protect your funny inflatable pool toys from the elements, find an enclosed and dry space, such as a garage or shed, to store them. One clever idea for saving space is to install one or more ceiling hooks, and use them to hang bags of pool toys. If you don't have garage space, an ideal alternative is to store summer gear – including pool equipment and toys – with Space Shop. They offer clean, secure self-storage units at branches nationwide.
