Can system withstand lake ice in northern Pennsylvania during the winter or should it be removed ...

Can system withstand lake ice in northern Pennsylvania during the winter or should it be removed in the fall and reinstalled in the spring?
Asked by: sam
It is always a good idea to get your float onshore if the lake freezes. In the spring, the wind can push the ice floes onshore, with your float sandwiched in between, with devastating results.

how many float drums do I need for a 4' by 16' long dock

Asked by: benzi
I would guess 6. I built a 6 X 12' dock and used 4 floats. Works well. With 16' I would want a center support thus the extra floats in the center. But 4 would have the buoyancy you need.

How much water is displaced when a 24 x 48 float is placed in the water with no additional weight...

How much water is displaced when a 24 x 48 float is placed in the water with no additional weight placed on top of it? How much water is displaced if I were to place 200 lbs of weight on top of it? I am asking these questions because I want to know how high above the water line my dock will be floating. Thanks in advance!

24 in. x 48 in. x 12 in. Dock System Float Drum is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I upgraded my floating dock from four 20"x10"x8' billets to four of these and could not be happie... I upgraded my floating dock from four 20"x10"x8' billets to four of these and could not be happier. The dock sits higher and the billets are lighter. Mine did not come with installation instructions, needed particularly for the vent plugs, but I found the information on the Permafloat website. These were a bargain for the money and free shipping to my door.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The floatation blocks are fine and will work out... The floatation blocks are fine and will work out as I expected. But several reviews mentioned that the plugs to seal them up before putting them in the water was missing, mine 4 plugs were not sent along also? So if you could follow up and send them to me that would be greatly appreciated. Jim

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Missing plug... I was happy with the product until I had my crew of dock installers scheduled at my home and they couldn't install because all of the floats were missing their screw in plugs! The manufacturer couldn't send them to me for 1-2 weeks which I feel is unacceptable. This is a very busy time of the year and my dock install crew isn't available for 2 months out. Floats are worthless without the plugs!
