Customer reviewsShort-lived. Very short lived.
Bought a set of these and the green, smaller ones in April of 2017. Our pool isn t heated so we couldn t use these until the end of June, when the water was warm enough. We used them for about 4 months, storing them in the shade in a plastic box. Took them out this year, same story. Now it s mid-August so they ve been used 2 months this year and stored in the shade when not in use. They were used about 3-4 times week for an hour that s being generous, it was often about 30 minutes each session. So... approx. 6 months of use, less than 100 hours of use, being stored in the shade and they are crumbling and shredding, leaving white debris in our pool. As soon as we pick them up, a white powder and white crumbs come off in our hands. Why not a 1-star rating They were great for awhile. Now we need to find something that won t decompose with so little use. Maybe the distributor sent us ones that had been sitting in a warehouse for too long. Phooey
