Water Slides for Inground Pools in Canada
A water slide is the perfect addition to heighten the swimming pool experience. Especially when the weather has such an impact on our decision to swim or not and is so unpredictable in Canada, sliding down a pool is guaranteed fun. When deciding between the height, flume, and/or shape of the slide, the size and configuration of your pool deck greatly affects the final say. Above all, your pool needs to be deep enough for a slide to function safely. Generally, you need to have at least three feet of pool water under the mouth of the slide, and there needs to be space from the ladder to the edge of the pool. Health and safety is the number one priority for swimmers of all ages. The smallest swimming pool slides are for riders up to 175 pounds and larger slide options hold for up to 275 pounds. In addition to the load capacity, the ladder's stability is essential for protection from harm. Slides rely on concrete decking for a strong foundation; ensuring the fasteners and the handrails all are secure and durable, establishing the angle and incline are correct, and meeting height and length requirements.

The two types of materials optimal for above ground pool slides are polyethylene and fiberglass, both common types of plastic. Fiberglass is a plastic reinforced with glass fibers to increase strength and reduce corrosion. Though made of plastic, these materials are durable and have low maintenance requirements. The cleanliness of a slide is important because no one wants to try to glide down a dirty slide. Everyday upkeep should include looking out for leaves, twigs, bugs, and other debris that may have fallen outdoors onto your pool slide, making for an uncomfortable ride. To rid your slide free of dirt and/or debris, first use a broom or soft brush to gently wipe away what you can. Next use a non-abrasive cleaner such as a sponge or a cloth, followed by a good rinse to polish your slide to look good as new!
