Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dock float Dock float works well for my project. This isn't thefrist time I used this brand float. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful for building a deck Product works very well...almost too well as the buoyancy keeps the floats very high in the water and create a 'tipsy' factor that I had to counter with the design of the dock Otherwise, they are easy to work with and should last a very long time. September 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by These floats a great. I would recommend these floats to anyone. They are of good quality and function as one would expect. August 7, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked fine. Two worked perfectly with a sheet of 4x8 plywood for a floating swim platform. May 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Free shipping I searched for this product for several weeks on and off on the internet. There are several places out there that carry this product however they all want to charge an enourmous amount for shipping. Haven't used the product yet but it was exactly what I was looking for and even through Home depot's price was slighty higher, shipping was free and that more than made up for the slightly higher price by the time you figured shipping. December 5, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very sturdy and substantial dock floats We purchased smaller of this type dock floats last year for our dock ramp and we were so impressed, that this year, decided to work on the main dock and purchased this larger size. This product is great and easy to work with. We have recommend this product for others and being shipped right to your door, gives them extra value for your money. Thank you Home Depot for carrying these dock floats. April 10, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent quality, easy to install I have used the PermaFloat system now on two dock projects. They are very easy to use, mounting under the wooden structure is simple with multiple bolt locations available. They are maintenance free and very durable. All this in a very economical choice as well. February 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Goose Nests Purchased three float drums to build floating geese nests for my lake. After I had completed the first one and anchored it, the geese nested before I could finish the next two. Wonderful product, thank you Home Depot. . . . May 4, 2011
