Pros and Con of Plastic Floating Jetties
So you just bought those jetskis you've always wanted and can't wait to take them out on the dam or river. Then you remember, you still need a way to get them in the water. You need some type of dock. Floating docks are relatively cheaper than stationary docks but is it the right option for you? Let's look at the pros and cons of floating jetties.
Pros of Floating Jetties
- There are many options available for floating docks. Plastic jetties are a good option if you're looking at affordability and longevity. They are also ideal if you plan on swimming around your jetty since they are easily accessible.
- Their versatility makes them an attractive solution because you can use them in low or high water. You can attach it to a stationary dock, pilings or a shoreline. Keep in mind that if the water gets too low, it might get damaged.
- If you don't like the configuration, you can easily change them by taking out the sections and repositioning them. Floating jetties are the most affordable option if you want to put a dock in deep water, and they are easy to assemble if you want to do it yourself.
- This jetty is for you if you like the rocking and swaying of the tide.
- Floating jetties has a generous lifespan and last around 20 to 30 years.
The Only Con of Floating Jetties
- The only negative around floating jetties is if they are installed in a spot where tide gets really low, it could result in damage to your floats. If the water level doesn’t drop too much, you have nothing to worry about.
