ZoomerangTM Pool Slide
I was hesitant to buy a slide for our above ground pool (27x52), But I am sure glad I did! We have 4 children ages 7, 5, 3, and 2 and ALL they do is slide now! My husband hooked it up straight to the return at the pump/filter instead of the return in the pool like it says to do. he put a valve so that we can just turn it on and off instead of unhooking it every time. Works perfectly!! The height is perfect for an above ground pool. It sits at about the same height as the railing so it is discrete. I also love the noise of the running water that it makes! Overall it is the best purchase we have made for the pool. I havent seen an older kid slide on it yet, but I dont see it being a problem. It is very sturdy!
In the swim was great to purchase from! Price was competitive plus the shipping was free and we recieved the slide in just a few days!!
Would defenitly reccomend to anyone!!

Only for kids
We bought this slide and found it very easy to install. We were able to install it in less than 1 hour. If you are installing it on a resin deck you will need to be careful with screw placement if your underside has ridges. When purchasing a slide, we wanted one that the entire family could enjoy. The stated weight limit is 200 lbs but does not mention a height restriction. However, the slide is difficult for larger kids/adults to navigate. The slide has a short slide portion with a sharp turn at the bottom which does not easily accomodate larger body frames. Also, one must be careful (even little ones) to remain upright when coming down the slide as not to lean when hitting the turn area.
Initially, we were not sure that we needed a slide with a water hook-up. The water flume makes sliding very easy and keeps the slide cool. There is also an added benefit of a waterfall sound coming from the slide as it hits your pool which is very enjoyable! The water hook-up easily hooks up from your pool return to the slide. All in all, I would recommend this slide for younger children. However, if you want a slide for your entire family to use (teens, adults) you may want to look for a slide that is longer than this one.

Should Have bought Sooner
Bought this last year for my above ground pool. Grandkids were 3 and 4 at the time. We all love it. Keeps the kids having fun and has also given them more confidence in the water. Easy to install and hook up. We have a 6 x 15 deck and after the install there is still lots of room for table and chairs. Even the older kids love it. !50lb weight limit is great, which keeps bigger kids off of it so it will last longer. Youngest daughter is 25 and though she is tall, she still gets a good ride. Definitely worth the money.
