Just when you thought spending an afternoon outdoors floating in a pool couldn’t get more relaxing, this motorized pool float had to come in and change the game.

Now, not only will you be able to recline in peace, but you’ll also be able to easily navigate back to the sunny area of the pool, the side where the cooler is located or wherever you need to go. No awkward arm paddling or assistance from a fellow floater required!

Thanks to the propellers and their corresponding controllers on either side of this motorized pool lounger, you can easily maneuver front, back and side to side to get yourself wherever you need to be stationed in the pool for optimal relaxation.

The YouTube video from the makers of the float, PoolCandy, will show you how effortlessly you could be getting around this summer:

Now, this PoolCandy Splash Motorized Pool Lounger may be one of those products that you never knew you needed in your life, but it’s guaranteed to take your summer pool game to a whole new level.


As you might imagine, this level of convenience doesn’t come cheap. It’ll cost you $240 to navigate the pool this easily. But we have a feeling it’d be worth it in the end.

One commenter pointed out that this is fun for everyone, and while this does require batteries, you won’t find yourself needing to change them too often.

They wrote, “Such a cool product! My family spent all weekend in the pool, and the float is yet to run out of battery power. Putting it together only took a few minutes, and to my happy surprise, there were no tools needed to assemble it. Both the motors and the float itself were really high quality! So much fun!!”

Another happy customer pointed out that this is so good, you won’t want to share.

“I am probably going to order one for my father-in-law or I won’t get a chance to use mine when he visits us at the pool,” the five-star review read.

Interested in getting something the kids can zoom around on, too, but don’t want to drop $240? You can look into items such as the Aqua Blast Motorized Bumper Boat.


These allow children to have a bit of fun but leave the motorized lounging to the adults. And at $109.99, they’re slightly more affordable. 


And if your furry friends need a pool float, plenty of dog floats exist as well.

That’s right — you can get a mini float for your dogs! Find the SwimWays Spring Float Paddle Paws Dog Pool Float on Amazon for around $34.99. It features claw- and paw-friendly fabric covering and is perfect for dogs under 65 pounds. It looks like a little water will collect in the base, so your pet can cool off on a hot day.


With these floats, you (and your dog) can make this summer the best one yet!
