Relax in the Pool with the Swimways Spring Float {Review & Giveaway}

I am a Swimways Swim Team Ambassador.  I received products free of charge as part of this role.

If you’re a busy mom like me, relaxing doesn’t come to your mind often.  Especially not when it comes to pool time.  Because chances are, if you’re in the water you’re working on swimming with your little one!  However, I recently had the chance to try out the Swimways Spring Float for those moments of solitude (also known as when grandma has the kiddos) and let me tell you, relaxing and the pool now go completely together in my mind.

The Swimways spring float is the perfect size to take to any destination for a little rest and relaxation.  I have actually discovered that it’s a great size for mom or for older kids and the little ones love enjoying it too!

Spring Float1

So, what do I love about this float?  Well, pretty much everything but there are several factors that really make it stand out to me.  Let’s start with it’s spring technology.  This allows it to open and close instantly, for easy assembly and break down when, say, you have your hands full with little ones at the pool.  It is super easy to close down and comes with an elastic strap to keep it secured.

And once you take the elastic piece off, the float pops out to be the perfect size for anyone!

Spring Float3

With it’s stretch mesh accents, it conforms to your body to allow each person a perfect fit for comfort as they float and also allows cool water to come through the bottom to prevent overheating as you relax in the water.

Spring Float 4

In my mind, this is the perfect float for summer time fun and I can’t wait to take it with us on our beach trip later this year.  That way, while the hubby watches the kids, I’ll be floating away the day in complete relaxation – just like I deserve!

But, as any mom knows, the pool is not all about you – in fact, it’s mostly about your kids and swimming fun!  That’s why it’s super important to know that your children are safe around water.  And one way to do this is to make sure the have appropriate water safety and swim instruction!  And now, I’ve got a great resource for you!  Be sure to pick up a few great tips from the Swimways blog and water safety expert Mario Vittone on how to choose the perfect swim instructor for your child!  After all, you’ll be able to relax on your float much better knowing that your little one has the basic skills they need to be able to swim on their own!

So, are you ready to enjoy the rest of the summer in the water?  You’ve got the tools to make sure your kiddos have great water skills.  Hopefully you’ve got lots of Swimways items to make pool time lots of fun!  And now, we want to give one lucky winner a Swimways Spring Float so that after all the fun you have with the kiddos, you can take a few minutes of relaxation for you!

  1. Helen May says

    Nothing a comfortable spot to relax! With triple digits all weekend and no air conditioning……would like to cool down! Thanks!

  2. Lucy Lopez says

    I would love this for my husband who works outdoors in this heat and could sure use some relaxing time in the water.

  3. Amy Honious says

    i would not help me this summer (had abdom surgery 2 weeks ago), but i do have one of my kids (grown and moved out) who has been swimming several times/week with his fiance and friends. i think they would really appreciate this if ‘ol mom wins! thanks for such a nice and timely giveaway!

  4. Eloise C says

    This would be great to take to the beach with me and relax in the waves. The kids would love it too! Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway!


  5. Betty says

    This spring float would certainly be a huge step up from our pool noodles! It looks so relaxing and just what mom needs for some in pool lifeguarding

  6. Cathy Tougher says

    The spring float would be so comfortable to float on in the pool. Those big bulky plastic rafts are so uncomfortable and they stick to your skin…yuk.

  7. Colleen Schilinski says

    Winning this would get in the water alot more than I do now, because I’d love to relax the day away while laying in the sun – enjoying the day.

  8. Colleen Maurina says

    This float looks so comfortable! I could see many hours floating in the pool on this float. I like that it folds up and is very compact for storage.

  9. Cassandra Eastman says

    It would be perfect to keep at Papa & Nana’s house when we go swimming on the weekends!

  10. Aldra W says

    I always choose spring floats over regular inflatable ones for the pool. They are perfect for staying cool in the water without being fully submerged. You also do not have to worry about awkwardly climbing up on top of those blow up floats with the chance of falling in the water as soon as you get up on it (Story of my life-haha)

  11. Mary Beth Hilbert says

    With a severe injury to my leg, this would be a great help to be able to cool off and spend time with the kids in the pool. great idea for someone who needs flexibility

  12. Penny W says

    It’s been so hot here lately and I love the way this float still gives your body contact with the water to keep you cool!

  13. heather zeh says

    I’m 2 weeks post c section and one of these look like the perfect way to let me enjoy the pool yet stay out of water. It’s gonna be a long summer with no swimming but this just may help

  14. Cindy S. says

    I like the little extra support under the knees….that would really help me because I have back issues.

  15. shirley says

    This would help me by letting our 16yr old use it, and let him float away from the smaller ones, or maybe give the little ones rides on it.

  16. Michele P says

    relaxing in a pool or lake on a float is so nice… it would keep me (or my daughter) cool and be lots of fun too.

  17. Holly C says

    We have a nice pool that seldom gets used. Hopefully winning this float would motivate me to go out and enjoy it.

  18. Cindi says

    I am going through the empty nest syndrome and out oldest son is getting
    married in August. Also, our youngest son is away at college. I need
    to relax in a pool…
    Thanks, Cindi

  19. Lacey Burd says

    We’re actually getting a pool next week, so we don’t have any kind of floaties yet. This would be perfect for relaxing in the pool! Thanks for the chance :)

  20. Mary Williams says

    It would help me relax at my best friends pool….I love floating around while chatting with her!

  21. Samantha D. says

    I’d use it to relax either in my uncles pool or take it to the Indiana dunes and drift on the Lake Michigan waves in the hot sun.

  22. Sandy VanHoey says

    It would help my sister relax while she is in the pool with her grandchildren. She works all the time so on her days off, she likes to take the kids in the pool

  23. Maxine Rose says

    My 3 kids love to swim–I love to relax. Winning this would allow me to be in the pool with the kids relaxing while they play.

  24. brandi hawn says

    i’d like to use this in my pool while the kids are swimming to relax and use the cup holder for an adult beverage :)

  25. Stephanie Ann says

    It would be great to just float in the pool on a hot summer day! that would definitely be a great way to relax

  26. polly says

    It would be perfect for this California heat to lounge in the pool….our grandson would love it also!

  27. Wendy M. says

    We usually spend our weekends at Lake MI and we love these floats. I can testify, they are durable! We’ve been using them since my daughter was a baby so for over 5 years and we love them all.
