Bodyfat Analysis - Float Set

If you are willing to make a set of small floats that are very easy damageable, it is a quick and easy way to take care of all the situations where a child or person naturally sinks in a pool. These are made of 1" thick BLUE foam house insulation. (Only the blue type does not absorb water, and is somewhat more durable than the white. The white foam disintegrates in water!)

This Chart shows the dimensions of rectangular slabs of the 1" thick foam. It also shows the equivalent combination of a standard Float (either the "Float" or "FLOAT") and a weight Baton.

As an example, a person might have needed to hold both the "Float" float and the E-Baton, two separate objects, to achieve the desired goal of just barely not floating. In this case, the slab of BLUE foam that is 6.0" by 9.87" accomplishes the same function, but with just one object being held. (Notice that for larger people, our Charts use the FLOAT float, which is bigger).

The only disadvantage of these floats is that they are very easily damaged. They can be cracked in half, but they can also be "dented" or an edge knocked off, which changes their value in the system. But they are certainly very simple and easy to make on a table saw! (with proper care, of course!)
