Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
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
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Better off with the larger sizes In 2000 I did a dock repair with one of the roto-molded dock floats. Twelve years later the top of the float is dusty. Meanwhile the styro log floats in the rest of the dock are in pretty pitiful condition. These roto-molded dock floats are the way to go. Since I'm nowhere near any vendors for the floats, total price was much cheaper at Home Really a great deal. However, I ordered four of these 4x4' (12" deep) floats and two of these 2'x4' andhe manufacturer shipped the four 4x4' floats by truck, but shipped both of the 2'x4' floats UPS. They just had a label stuck on them. There were gouges in the edges of the 2'x4' floats at the bottom. I suggest you try to design your dock so as to use larger floats such as the 4x4x12s as much as possible. Try to avoid the smaller floats that can be shipped by UPS. Alternatively, just be prepared to have to re-order the 24"x48" floats until you receive what you need that are in good shape. Additionally, keep in mind that the price per pound of floatation is less for the larger sizes. October 24, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product ...just what I needed Converted standard pier to floating dock. Easy attachment with holes provided. Can't beat the price. No more adjusting pier with the varying water levels. I'm very happy with the results. No ice surges in spring, so I don't have to pull anything out for the winter. August 14, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good design for applications This is a excellent product for making docks or rafts. The only downside from ordering through Home Depot was that all the possible sizes were not obvious on the web site. I wish that I had reviewed the manufacturing company's website to get all the details. One other problem I had was that the self venting plugs did not come with the floats and it took 3-4 weeks before Home Depot and the company sent them to me. October 1, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Durable dock float Bought two of these and some hardware and built a 4 x 8 dock for a pond. these look like they will last many years, and they come with slots and holes to mount them to your dock frame. Were delivered (free shipping > $249) right to my door in about 4 days. very happy with them. August 8, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product, the real deal These are great dock floats. Should last a lifetime. No external Styrofoam or closed-celled foam. Very sturdy and dimensionally accurate; easy to install. And Home Depot's price is very good. I bought 10, so a good price was important. They have been in place for several weeks now and my dock is better than ever. Delivery was actually early and was free. Right to my cabin's front door. Can't beat that. September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent purchase Build a new 12x12 floating dock with these. They were delivered ahead of schedule and in good condition. Remember to follow the directions about inserting the plugs. We put one in while it was still in the sun and it expanded so it did not exactly match the others. July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dockbilder Light but effective floation. No problems with damage by water or other stuff. Easy to use. April 30, 2011
