    Anyone else put floaties on your feet when in a pool?

    so, random thought this morning. Does anyone else ever put arm floaties on your feet when floating in the pool in a tube? it really works great, more of a recliner for the pool...haha

    I can think of bad things happening if you get flipped off the tube with the floaties on your feet. Just doesn't seem like something I'd want to do.

    HAHA

    I mean just slip them on your feet, Not your ankles. Sure would hate to be bobbing feet up in 8 ft of water

    I bought 2 of these http://www.swimways.com/spring-float-recliner-p-62.aspx . They were cheap.
    1) The size of your pool in gallons 4440.
    2) The type filter you have is an Intex 2500 gph and it has a re-useable fabric filter
    3) If your pool is an AG (above ground)
    4) Intex 15 by 48 metal frame.
    5) If you know, tell us the size pump 2500gph and the size (flow rate) of your filter.

    HAHA Well I would take a picture but I havent been brave enough to take the plunge this spring. Water is still a little too cool. But yeah the picture of the baby is about what i mean but the floaties just on your feet, NOT ANKLES!
