Thread: Keep water off floor

    Post Keep water off floor

    Guys I am in the process of building a pool. I have been looking for something to put on my wood floors inside the house that will trap the water so that the floor doesn't get wet as people come in and out to the bathroom. Is there anything out there that I can buy to protect my wood floors?

    It's not the best look, but if I know there will be a lot of people in and out, I just put a bunch of old towels down on the floor to make a path. With adults, it's easier. They know (or can be told) to drip dry or dry off before going inside. Kids are trickier. I just have lots of extra pool towels handy for potty break dry offs.

    When I had indoor dogs, I considered buying water hog rugs to have at the door. They probably have runners too. I did a search for water hog rugs and several sites popped up. They certainly do look nicer than old rag towels.

    We make kids wrap a towel around them and sit for a few minutes before going in. Helps a lot.

    They make mats that are very absorbent for outside the shower. They have some fairly large sizes. One or two inside the door should do the trick.

    I solved most of the problem by getting a privacy tent and a luggable loo. The kids don't mind using it and the adults don't have a problem waiting to dry off before going into the house.
