How to Fill Your SoFloat
SoFloats are easy and fun to fill - follow our guide below and give it a go!
Before you begin, read the filling instructions on your SoFloat information pack to ensure you have purchased enough beans for your SoFloat (the little white polystyrene balls). If you need help with trying to buy beans, our website has suggestions on where you can buy them from: WHERE TO BUY BEANS
Filling your SoFloat is possible on your own, but we recommend two people filling it together for a seamless and successful fill.
Remove your SoFloat from the white SoFloat draw string bag. Lay down your SoFloat cover on the floor and insert the white bean liner as you would with a duvet. Before you start pouring in the beans, take your SoFloat to a dry bathtub.
Put plug in bathtub to catch any beans that spill. One person needs to be the liner holder while the other is responsible for pouring the bean filler into the liner. Ensure the velcro at the top of the SoFloat cover is rolled over, so that it doesn't catch on the liner. Open the liner zipper and hold sides apart so the 'pourer' has a good sized hole to pour into. Make a funnel with top of bean filler plastic bag – and insert the neck into the SoFloat. Pour the beans inside the white mesh liner and be patient - you may need to stop pouring in between and shake your bean bag to make room for more beans.
Once the liner is filled to desired level zip up the liner and remove the safety pins. Vacuum up any little beans that have escaped - the tiny white balls are a choking hazard to children and pets.
You may need to give your bean bag a bit of a jiggle to get beans in the right place. Now you are ready to relax on your SoFloat and enjoy!
