Enter the pool belt.
This is the exact one I have. It was only $18 and you can buy one HERE.
My 7 year old daughter is now taking pictures. Be aware.
on the smallest setting the belt fits me perfectly and there is quite a bit of extra slack that could accommodate a larger waisted person.
because I tie my belt to a diving board, the strap was not long enough so I used some retired climbing rope to make it longer.
Works like a dream!!
The strap is nice and tight and you could use this thing in a SMALL pool.
Do you think I'm wussy swimming in this pool when you see that nice and inviting creek in the background??
Well, in my defense:
oh yeah, we found that jellyfish 2 days ago.
Here's a closer look.
I'm out of the creek until the next rainstorm!
