What do you call a pool float?
Either that or a swim ring. In some other countries, they call them an inner tube, water donut, rubber ring, floatie, a lifesaver, or even an inflatable water toy.
Why is inflatable floater important?
Inflatable floaters are better than non-inflatables as they can be easily stored away and take up much less space. And if you ever need to deflate it, you can just run it under water or pierce it and it'll eventually release the air and even easily fold on itself when dry.
