Are you looking to bring the fun, excitement and laughter back to your backyard pool? A backyard swimming pool slide may be just the answer you’ve been looking for! A pool slide is the ultimate way to transform your pool area into a haven of excitement and fun. Here are some things to consider when choosing your new pool slide.
Location and footprint
When it comes to footprint, there’s no doubt that pool slides can take up a good amount of deck space. That’s why it’s important to check the overall specifications of the slide that you’re interested in to ensure that it’ll fit into your existing space. You also need to consider space for the kids to line up for, and move around, the slide.
Further, for safety reasons, pool slides need to be installed in water that’s neither too deep or too shallow. Reputable slide and swimming pool shops, such as Aqua Action, will be able to advise you on the best slide for your existing pool space.
Size of the slide
Believe it or not, it’s not just the kids who can have a ripping time on a slide! Slides from larger, quality pool shops cater to the young at heart as well, with quality slides ranging in size from small to tall and catering to the whole family — from the little ones right through to mum and dad.
If you’re after a slide that the whole family can enjoy, be sure to check the weight capacity of the slide, along with the width of the flume, before finalising your order.
Ease of installation
Before purchasing your new pool slide, it’s good to check the installation requirements. Most slides purchased from quality swimming pool shops, including Aqua Action, can be installed DIY, and won’t need any professional help or intervention. Detailed installation instructions will be included with the delivery of the slide, and will generally involve anchoring the slide to the pool deck. If your slide requires any form of additional water supply, this will also be outlined in the installation instructions.
Make, material and colour of the slide
Your pool slide will be heavily exposed to the elements, so you want to ensure that the pool slide you invest in is durable, as well as being chemical, rust, corrosion and impact-resistant! At Aqua Action, our fully rotomolded constructed slides provide an unrivalled level of strength and durability for many years to come.
It’s also important to ensure that the slide will not fade in the sun over time. And when it comes to the colour of your slide, gone are the days of sky blue being the only viable option! These days, pool slides are available in a range of attractive colours and earthy tones such as sandstone, grey granite, and taupe to naturally complement your pool and deck areas.
No doubt about it — there truly has never been a better time to invest in a quality pool slide for your backyard pool!
