Is your Lifeguard Rescue Tube outdated? Was it invented in the 1960s? Is out made out of outdated vinyl coated foam? Is your rescue tube cracking, peeling, ripping, and absorbing bodily fluids such as sweat, blood, saliva, urine, and / or fecal matter thus creating a potential Biohazard?
If the answer to any of the above questions is "Yes" then it is time to upgrade your rescue tubes to the revolutionary industry changing LIFE™ Rescue Tube!
Here is what one recent customer is saying: My favorite feature of the LIFE Rescue Tube is "The durable and solid construction- it doesn't crack or tear and the ability to insert a new harness strap..."

Are your Lifeguard rescue tubes falling apart? If you have old style vinyl coated foam rescue tubes, the answer is most likely yes! Pictured above is a recent photo that a YMCA customer sent in of their old vinyl rescue tubes. Rescue tube technology has improved significantly since the vinyl coated tubes were first invented way back in the early 1960s. Lifeguards worldwide are discovering the revolutionary new LIFE™ Rescue Tube and retiring their old vinyl coated tubes. Has your aquatics facility upgraded your rescue tubes yet?

YMCA's all across the United States and around the World are upgrading their old vinyl YMCA rescue tubes (Photo Above) to the revolutionary new LIFE™ Rescue Tubes! The old vinyl coated "Noodle" tubes are notorious for cracking and splitting and potentially posing a danger to Lifeguards and victims. When splitting, the old lifeguard tubes may not function properly for rescue and could potentially pose a health risk due to exposed foam absorption of blood born pathogens.
The LIFE™ Rescue Tube is the #1 selling rescue tube in the World and also the #1 selling rescue tube to YMCA aquatics facilities and growing everyday.

Recently sighted in Hawaii, Ben Affleck was training for the new NETFLIX Film TRIPLE FRONTIER. Affleck was using an eLifeguard.com® Lifeguard Rescue Tube. The Rescue Tube that he was using was one of the old vinyl coated foam models which was replaced several years ago by the revolutionary new LIFE™ Rescue Tube. Way to go Ben! Keep up the training and good luck with TRIPLE FRONTIER!

"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result", so they say.

The LIFE Rescue Tube is now the #1 selling rescue tube in the world and is not letting up any time soon. With recent adoption among various lifesaving certification agencies around the world, the LIFE Tube is here to stay and now the rescue tube of choice among lifesavers worldwide.
