    Walmart has all the pieces parts! Just don't like the idea of them having glass bottles in the pool. Cans only!

    That cooler would be warm in 10 minutes without any insulation. I'll hop out and get one from the fridge.

    Cool idea put the warm pool water will melt that ice VERY fast. I would just get a small ice chest and make the floats for it!
