You’ve got your boat for cruising open waters, a dinghy for trips to shore, and a kayak for shallow waters. That means that the last place you have left to conquer is the backyard pool! And what better way than in a pool toy you control with the push of a button? The Splash Runner from Pool Candy is an inflated pool chair that has two motorized propellers to move riders around their pool or other calm body of water.
The body of the chair is made of heavy-duty PVC and is designed to hold passengers up to 300 lbs. Two battery-powered, independently rotating motors allow the lounger to move in any direction and spin in a full 360° circle using simple joystick controls. Setting up the Splash Runner only takes a few minutes; inflate the chair with an ordinary air pump and then slide the motors in through the holes in the chair’s arms. A drink holder in the chair keeps you well hydrated in the summer sun, and the chair comes with a 30-day warranty from the manufacturer.
If your standard pool float just isn’t quite lazy enough for you, head over to poolcandy.net to check out the selection. Splash Runners go for about $200.
