Yes it is! I got a lot of feedback last summer and used that to make a few improvements. The most notable change is that they no longer have an inflatable outer tube. Instead they are filled with tiny air bubbles that allow it to float. This has many benefits like... way easier to use and stack, doesn't sink with rain or a waterfall, doesn't flip on windy days, easier to keep clean, and more durable. I personally love the new version but I always want to be completely honest with you. There is one drawback. Occasionally they will slide on top of each other, creating a big floating shade island. I personally don't mind it and will go out and separate them every now and then. In my opinion the benefits way out weigh this minor inconvenience.
If you purchased the original version please note this new version doesn't work great with the original version. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
