To blow up a pool floats, i think the first thing get into our mind is a pump. There are several kinds of pumps that can help you to finish the job

Inflating with an electric pump is the fastest way, and it is suitable for large inflatable pools, such as large swimming pools. If it is very small, it only takes a few minutes to complete the inflation. In addition, the electric pump can not only inflate, but also can be used to pump and deflate

No.2: Use A Foot Pump

The foot pump is completely manual, suitable for small pool floats. Even though it’s not as fast as electrical pump, but as the pool float is small, so still only few time to finish it. It should be noted that when using the foot pump to inflate, it should not be too fast or too slow, it is best to use even force.

No.3: Use A Hand Pump

Although the hand pump is very cheap, the inflation efficiency is very low, which is time-consuming and labor-intensive. It is only suitable for inflating small inflatable products. If it is an inflatable swimming pool, it takes a long time to fully charge it, so it is not recommended to use it.
