Today's WaterMat lake toys are the product of years of on-going innovation, experimentation and response to customer feedback. Our WaterMats are manufactured under US patent # 7,744,436. Through it all, we have remained committed to a simple objective: Make each WaterMat as fun, safe and no-hassle as possible. When you're at the lake getting away for the weekend, the last thing you want is to hassle with a deflated water toy or any other product defect: it isn't fun if your new water toy tears when your 145-pound kid jumps on it and it rips upon impact.
It may "just look like a big piece of foam," but there's actually a significant amount of physics and engineering in this seemingly simple product. Our nearly ten years of experience with the WaterMat has taught us that "all foam is not created equal." We are proud of our All-American supply chain and the outstanding quality of foam that goes into every WaterMat, regardless of model or size. The plant that manufactures the closed cell polyethylene foam is ISO 9001 compliant and has an industry-leading Quality Management System.
And although our quality is unmatched, we focus on continuous improvement. We meet with our production partners to discuss the latest developments in cross-linked foam technology so that we can continue to make the WaterMat family more durable, lighter, safer, and... funner. Engineered, tested, and built to last here in the USA, we have tinkered with the foam composition, our manufacturing technique and processes, the overall dimension and design of the WaterMats to produce the most fun, safe, durable, easy-to-maintain, and no-hassle water toys specifically for a marine application.
We even designed a special box to better protect the product during shipping to deliver better customer satisfaction. Although some WaterMats use different foam composites, all WaterMats share the same commitment to quality and durability. Please note: although extremely durable, the WaterMat is not designed as a towable behind any type of watercraft.
The WaterMat's tethering system allows you to quickly and simply attach your WaterMat to an anchor or other structure. If you intend to keep your WaterMat in the lake for an extended period of time, it is recommended that you mark your WaterMat with your own a highly visible buoy. Use great care in placing your WaterMat in a location that is safe from boat traffic, sufficiently deep and free from hard surfaces and underwater obstructions.
