Choosing A Pool Slide

SIZE

Not all pool slides are just for the kids! Pool slides range from small to tall! While the smallest slides are intended only for children, there are many larger pool slides on the market that can easily accommodate most adults. If you are looking for a pool slide that everyone can enjoy, look for a weight capacity of at least 200 lbs., a wide flume with deep walls, and comfortable curves that aren’t too tight.

Not all pool slides are just for the kids! Pool slides range from small to tall!

If you are looking for a pool slide that everyone can enjoy, look for a weight capacity of at least 200 lbs., a wide flume with deep walls, and comfortable curves that aren’t too tight. Traditionally, pool slides had a simple runway with one curve… but today, pool slides are available with all kinds of dips and curves, from gently sloping to a full 360° turn! If you are adding a pool slide to an existing pool, you may be limited by the amount of deck space you have, but if the slide is going on a new pool you can have your pick. Your pool builder can help you find a pool slide that will work in the space that you have.

 

 

 

COLORS

Some pool slides are available in solid colors like white and blue, but advances in materials have also allowed manufacturers to offer products in many textures and blends that mimic natural elements, like stone.

MATERIALS/SURFACE

Most modern pool slides are made of either fiberglass gelcoat or rotationally molded polyethylene plastic. Both of these are beautiful materials! They are both extremely durable and impact resistant, chemical resistant, corrosion and rust resistant, and will not fade over time in the sun.
