Swimming pool slide and great information on above ground pool accessories for great swimming and Summer fun.
Pool water slides might just be the best thing you can put next to your pool, other than swimming pool diving boards.
Swimming pool water slides are intended for moderate to heavy use.
With proper anchoring, they offer countless hours of fun and excitement for you and your family.
If you want your kids to go to bed early, get one of these goodies and take them swimming. They'll be in bed by 7pm. Swimming pool slides are pretty straight forward.
You climb up the ladder and go down the slide that's covered with water. Many are available in both right and left curve design and have a thick and durable acrylic runway.
The underside of the slide should be reinforced by an acrylic frame to have maximum strength, safety, and durability.
The ladder, legs, and handrails should be made of heavy duty aluminum. With proper installation, your swimming pool water slide can be directly cemented into the ground or with above ground anchors.
Some pool water slides can be mounted on swimming pool decks that are not level, although I would recommend getting the ground as level as possible before installing your outdoor water slides.
The handrails (especially a water park slide) should be shaped and formed to give the swimmer secure points to hold while entering the top platform and slide.
Your swimming pool water slide should provide a constant flow of water from the top to the bottom. Most will fit a normal outdoor water faucet and some may even fit your pool circulation system, but is usually not recommended.
Some pool slides have a water flow of up to 35 gallons per hour.
You need to be sure the water flow is constant. Check the connections to the water system so unfiltered water doesn't return back into the swimming pool.
Pool slides can by fun for the whole family. But with anything around the pool, something that seems funny can lead to injury or death.
Before buying your pool slide, you should check these swimming safety concerns:
Professional installation is recommended. You can go to the Consumer Product Safety Commission to find all about swimming pool slide specs. and safety.
I know they think it's fun, but remember it's safety first.
The ladder is for climbing, not pushing. Only one person at a time.
Nobody want to get a heel in the nose.
Never put oils or lotions on the pool slide to make it "slicker". Water is just fine and you're not going to get much more speed going down the slide anyway, so why bother?
And that also goes for dogs.
You've gone down the slide, you're in the water, you turn around and BAM, you get nailed in the face because someone thought it would be fun to launch an object down the slide after you. Not so funny, so let's keep objects out of the way. A swimming pool slide is for people and nothing else.
Let's keep it fun and safe.

I set my ionizer to "HI" and put too much copper in my pool.
While we were away a Good Samaritan neighbor turned the water on into our pool to replace evaporation loss but forgot to turn it off again.
My filtering system is about 7 yrs old. It has a Pantera PCF 150 cartridge filter (actually uses 2 stacked PCF 75's ).
