Why should you deflate floats before putting them away?

Flatten Your Floats

Quick, how do you get 100 balloons in one tiny bag? You don't blow ‘em up. Pretty obvious, right? Yet millions of Americans ignore this fact when storing pool toys in a pool shed and senselessly kill causing blowup raft and innertube fatalities.

All joking aside, the easiest ways to store floats are to deflate them after the summer is over. You will take up less space this way, things will be more organized, and you won't run the risk of popping any of your favorite floats.
