How to select the right PFD Life Jacket
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR CHILD’S PFD (LIFE JACKET)
To reduce the risk of drowning, read the information 1 in the tag, 2 in the label on your Personal Floatation Device (PFD)
Select the right PFD (life jacket) for your child!
When choosing a PFD for your child, understand that different types of PFD’s have different strengths and limitations, including:
Type I PFD
Unless a hybrid*, more bulky and less comfortable than either Type II or Type III PFD (life jackets)
Type I PFD’s have the greatest ability to turn a child “face-up”.
Type II PFD
Typically comfortable, but more bulky than Type III PFD (life jackets)
Type II PFD’s will turn only some children to a “face-up” position.
Type III PFD
Least bulky and most comfortable for continuous wear
Type III PFD’s are NOT designed to turn a child “face-up” in the water. They provide good support to children with some swimming skills.
Type V PFD
May be a substitute for a Type I, II or III (as marked on the PFD label)
Examples are Type V swimwear PFD’s with Type III performance that provide enhanced wearability.
*Hybrid devices may combine improved comfort with enhanced in-water performance
A “face-up” position is one where the child is floating calmly on his/her back with arms and legs in the water and head back, face up, with face out of the water. The ability of a PFD (life jacket) to turn a child “face-up” is affected by:
Your child’s height and weight distribution
The type of PFD you select
The ability of your child to remain calm in the water
The ability of your conscious child to turn himself/herself face-up
Make sure your child’s PFD (life jacket) fits properly!
Select a PFD that fits your child based on his/her weight plus any other sizing on the PFD, such as chest size. Make sure your child’s weight is within the range marked on the PFD. The PFD should fit snugly, but not too tightly. Do not buy a PFD (life jacket) that your child will “grow into.”
Have your child try the PDF and test its fit by lifting the child up by the shoulders of the PFD. The PFD is too large if it slips over the child’s chin or ears. Always use leg straps, if provided, to keep PFD securely in place.

Life Jacket Cleaning
In the pool and waterpark industry, life jackets are used in chlorinated water, which innately kills germs.
They can be washed as needed; but most importantly, after each use life jackets should be hung to dry
completely. Hanging the life jackets is very important to retard the formation of mildew. The life jackets
can be cleaned if needed with a solution of 1 T. chlorine bleach per gallon of clean water. A large
container, such as a 55‐gallon drum, works best to clean a large quantity of life jackets.
Life jacket racks are commonly used, for visibility in the park and longevity of the life jacket. The rack is
typically a 3‐ or 4‐tier structure with dowels to hang the life jackets. The smaller sizes are placed on the
bottom tiers where they are easily accessible to children, with adult sizes on the upper tiers.
