I bought it twice, because it was that good.

While most of you may use this as a pool float, we use it as our animal rescue ramp. Thanks to the loop at the end, you can put a metal pole (excuse my pole, it was something the previous owners left and I up-cycled) through the hole to add weight, keeping it in place, while the rest of the float goes into the pool, creating a ramp for any animal that may end up in the water. We did this after having some unfortunate accidents with our local wildlife.
Since buying this, we have had no more surprises. The squirrels now use it to drink pool water, the ducks that visit use it to get in and out of our pool, and as far as we can tell, it's most likely rescued some late night animals seeking a drink. We recently bought a new one as the first one I purchased almost four years ago needed to be replaced. That's four years of constant use, outside and in the elements, and it was mostly replaced because the squirrels had started to chew the edges. Damn good product.
