 Pool noodles are fun pool toys that have been around for years. The fact that they float is the main reason why they are the go to items for water games and activities. They are also useful for learning how to swim, for rescue missions and other aquatic interests.

Pool noodles are almost similar to industrial and residential foam insulation that are often used for pipes. The slight difference being that the industrial foam products are denser and have a structural reinforcement outer layer. These pool noodles can also be used in the residential sector instead of the industrial versions in the building for insulation as they are a bit cheaper, thus saving on cost.

There is not a limit the use of pool noodles and connectors because they are cheap and highly versatile.
