Aspects to Consider When Buying a Pool Slide

Pool Slides Can be Added Later

When buying an inground pool and trying to work within a budget, you quickly discover that there are things that must be purchased now and things that can be added later. Luckily, with a little planning, pool slides can be effortlessly installed any time in the future. 

Here's how to plan for your future slide:

  • Make sure there's enough patio space.
  • Make sure a water source is roughed in and capped for future use.
  • Pool slides use water from the pool, so have your contractor install another plumbing line to the future slide location. 
The Slide Location is Important
Try to position your slide so it is facing your primary congregating area.
This is for two obvious reasons.
First, while your slide is running, water cascades down from the slide into the pool so you not only have a slide but it also serves as a water feature.
Second, so you can see the excitement on the kids' (of all ages) faces as they shoot into the pool. Both of these are a lot more fun than staring at the back of a slide!
It's also nice to have an exit point like a step, bench seat, or ladder pool relatively close to the slide for convenience.
Allow Enough Patio Space for Your Pool Slide
Most slides need a minimum area of 7'x15'.
Without enough patio around the slide, access around the patio is cut off and you end up walking around the pool deck or ducking under the slide to get through to the other side.
Oh The Slides You Have To Choose From
Over the past 10 years the pool slide industry has really blossomed.
Now there are a lot of different models to choose from...and they're really cool!
  • Price
  • Of course, price is a consideration. The average price for pool slides starting from $3,000 and the sky is the limit.
