Customer Questions & Answers

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.

Can system withstand lake ice in northern Pennsylvania during the winter or should it be removed in the fall and reinstalled in the spring?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, Poor buying experience. Good quality, Used four of these on a 6 x 12' dock. Beware the mounting holes are not 24" on center. Wait to build your frame until you have the floats.
