POOL BUOY TO THE RESCUE Alamo Heights residents Jeremy and Erica Sloan have created Pool Buoy, the first and only floating pool umbrella that floats freely in the pool and is specifically designed to stay upright in wind and waves. The 7-foot beach-style umbrella is made from aluminum and covered in UV-rated fabric to provide shade and prevent rust. It features five cup holders for beverages, snacks, sunglasses and other items that you wish to remain dry. The Sloans have a history of skin cancer in their families, so they created the Pool Buoy to protect their two young daughters from too much sun. It’s perfect for anyone who loves the sun, but doesn’t like the harmful rays. Pool Buoy is here just in time for this summer’s heat and sun. Find yours at www.mypoolbuoy.com or call 210-859-5793.
