3 Significant Features of Quality Pool Noodles



When you invest in something, you want it to last. You should go for a water woggle that doesn't lose its structural integrity merely after a few days of being in the pool. Our pool noodles are made of industrial-grade polyethylene foam. The PE foam's closed cell structure ensures the water woggle isn't damaged by water or moisture. It also prevents mold from growing on the foam noodle's surface.

Softness and Buoyancy

Pool noodles are used by people of all ages, especially kids. The material should be soft and should not cause discomfort on the skin. It should also be buoyant and able to support someone to stay afloat. Water woggles are among the most used swimming aids in the world. It is important to note that if you do not know how to swim, it is essential to get in the pool under expert supervision even if you are using a water woggle.


Versatility adds another dimension to quality pool noodles. You should go for water woggles with a hole in the middle. They can be easily cut in half and used for a wide range of applications like baby proofing and artwork installations.
