Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Value I live in an association that owns a park and boat docks on a lake. Our old floating dock was more than 30 years old. After one winter we had to replace the dock, so we ordered these floats, along with the Perma Float dock hardware. Smartest decision ever. These floats are foam filled and of high quality. Delivery was fast. Our dock has never been this stable, all due to these floats. May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by p/PermaFloat-24-in-x-4 The purchase was exactly what we needed. It is a hard to find item and was glad Home Depot had what was needed July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best value on the web. fast delivery and they brought them down to our door (its a 200+ feet walk down a very steep driveway) just as we expected they were the perfect fit for our docks and getting them from Home Depot was a real surprise. Looked all over the internet for a better price and couldn't find one with the size we needed for less. Great experience, will buy again. May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well-made floats at a good price I have not yet finished installing these floats into my floating dock, but they are well-made and appear to be just what I was hoping for when I ordered them. January 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dock floats I made a 10 X 5 wooden dock and needed sturdy floats to make it work. These were priced slightly higher than some other sites but shipping was free and so it was worth it! They were delivered way before it was expected which made me very happy. The instructions on line are much more detailed in my opinion but there are printed instructions that come with. Very happy with these floats. I used 4 of them, one in each corner of my dock, they are working beautifully. Highly recommend Home Depot and these floats. Use 3/8 inch lag bolts or screws to attach but pre-drill 1/4 inch holes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good product Easy to attach to frame using corner holes and lag bolts. November 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nice floats Very easy to install, built two ramp sections and attached a float at the end with no issues. June 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect It was the perfect size and it fit the homemade dock perfect. You can't see if but you know it is there when you step on the dock. April 21, 2015
