It Floats !! the Float is doing it's job! called Techstar (Tommy Docks) several times while figuring out on building our dock with the right products , this company is the best at customer service. they always had answers and were quick to send products out. Home depot was a great vendor for Techstar and provided great delivery options for us. especially when it came to the 20' piling poles.

Did a great job
These floats are just the thing you need if building a floating dock. We used then in the center of our 10' x 16' floating dock for added support and they work great to stabilize the dock.

Techstar dock floats
The Styrofoam pellets in our Techstar dock float were unconsolidated pellets and this leads to two problems, if the case leaks then the float loses part of its floatation. It should be filled with a closed cell foam. I am sure that is the design but they may have quality control problems. However the worst problem is that if the hole is big enough literally thousands of tiny pellets leak out and cause a real eyesore on your lakeshore or marina. The company has not responded to my concern.

Easy to work with
Easy to work with, bolted them onto the frame upside down then flipped it over and decked it in the water. Strait forward to frame up. We are our dog love the DL-5 ladder goes great with this dock.
