1. Unpack and Inspect


Before setting up, take a moment to unbox your new ledge lounger pool chairs. Check for any damage during transportation and ensure that everything is in perfect condition – you want your setup to be flawless. If you encounter any issues from cracks, scratches, or other imperfections please contact our customer service at customerservice@ledgeloungers.com as soon as possible.

2. Fill Your Ledge Lounger Product With Water


Fill your furniture with water by taking out the plugs, immersing it in the pool until all bubbles vanish, and then reinserting the plugs to seal the water. It’s a straightforward process.


Do not:


– Place inside the pool empty.


– Fill with anything other than water (sand is not a recommended option for filling your product.)


– Use your water hose to fill up.

Fill Only With Pool Water


Ledge products are designed to be filled with pool water. Pool water’s unique composition prevents the growth of mold, mildew, and algae inside the chaise. Filling it with water from sources like a garden hose could result in the resin expanding and warping. In other words, using a hose can exert pressure inside the chair’s cavity, potentially leading to swelling or warping, much like how inflating a balloon causes it to expand. Proper installation will ensure your product works as it should.

3. Position on the Tanning Ledge


After filling it with water, place the Ledge Lounger product where you want it on the ledge. Consider factors like the angle of the sun, the view from the pool, and how you’d like your poolside setup to flow. Positioning is key!


Within the pool setting, Ledge pool furniture is lightweight, making it manageable for one or two individuals to move. No need for professional help – just place it wherever you fancy on the ledge.


With a bit of care, you can effortlessly get it into the ideal spot on the pool’s tanning ledge.

2. Remove From the Pool


When empty, Ledge pool furniture is sufficiently lightweight to be effortlessly carried by only one or two people. To prevent any harm, exercise caution to avoid sliding the furniture across concrete, stone surfaces, or any decking. Instead, lift it and gently place it down.

3. Store in a Safe Place


The most secure spot for storing pool furniture is indoors, far from harsh winds and freezing weather. Storage sheds or garages serve as excellent options. If you must store your product outdoors, consider covering it with an industrial-grade plastic bag or a sizable tarp. This will protect against the frigid conditions of winter.


How to Maintain Your Ledge Lounger


To keep your new setup looking fresh, remember these maintenance tips:


  • After every swim, rinse your furniture to remove pool chemicals and salt.
  • During winter or an instance of a freeze, it’s a good idea to take your furniture out beforehand.
