Dock Floats Vs. 55 Gallon Drums Or Foam Blocks

Dock Floats are the best option for a floating dock. A dock float is much more reliable and environmentally friendly than using foam blocks or 55 gallon barrels. Unlike a floating dock made with dock floats, floating barrels on a dock are often very unstable. Additionally, foam blocks and plastic barrels can be damaging to the environment. Overtime, pieces from the foam blocks can break off and end up polluting lakes and getting eaten by wildlife. With 55 gallon barrels, they may have been previously used to store harmful chemicals. The risks, damage, and likelihood of needing to replace plastic drums and foam blocks often heavily outweigh the benefit of saving you a few bucks in the beginning.
