Some frequently asked questions from Mums, Dads, Grandparents, and Kids
Aqua Action Slides are built with the whole family in mind. The ‘Helix2’ is made to hold up to 113kg. The ‘Turbo Twister’ and ‘Typhoon’ are made to hold up to 124kg, so that means EVERYONE can have fun in the pool with their Aqua Action Slide!
Aqua Action Slides are made from a strong roto-moulded acrylic material and treated with a UV protection coat to guard your Slide from the harsh Australian sun. Like any object that you leave outside all day, every day the Slide will fade, but only the slightest bit. Because the colour is incorporated into the acrylic material, the fading is much less obvious than an object that has been brushed over with actual paint or coating.
If you decide on adding a Typhoon Waterslide to your pool, the average delivery time is within 1-7 days*, anywhere in Australia. This is because the Typhoon is our most popular slide, and it’s kept in stock at our Brisbane warehouse in QLD. Our other slides, such as the ‘Turbo Twister’ and ‘The Helix2″ for example, have to be ordered in from America and in some cases can take up to *8 weeks, depending on Australian Customs.
The majority of our slides are installed when the pool is being built, so the water stub-sup (water source) is plumbed into the correct location at the time of the pool build. If you have purchased a slide AFTER your pool is built, this is still OK! The water can be tapped from the external outlet of your pool filter – like having a water feature or waterfall added after you’ve built your pool. Then the water runs through a soft type of tubing along the ground to the Slide, then re-circulates from the pool to the filter and then to the slide – so there is no wasting water (especially with today’s harsh water restrictions!)
