    Pool Slides

    1. 1 decade ago
      A great addition
      We have had a pool for five years and my children have asked for a slide. Each time we looked at slides they either looked very cheap or were too expensive. This year as we decided it was time to look again. Technology and styles have changed for the better and we were pleased to find the Turbo Twister Thrill Ride Pool Slide. The entire family decided this was the slide for us. The Turbo Twister was easy to install and has rejuvenated the interest in the pool. I would highly recommend this slide.

      Instructions
      There is a lack of instructions. For instance when you fill weight bags with water, the water rushes out when pushing in the plug. Also, how do you install the sprinkler?

      GREAT FUN FOR KIDS.
      I bought this for my Grandchildren ranging 6 to 13 they have a blast on it. We have an above ground pool an we push the bottom part of the float under it seemed to get in the way for the bigger kids. They have played on it for 3 days straight an still like new. : )

      Worked well for younger grandchildres
      Question: I of course threw away the box and all the instructions, is there a special way to deflate it for the winter?? Closing up the pool and need to take care of this soon! Thx.

      Solid Slide, Worth the price.
      Slide was shipped as advertised and put together in my garage. Everything went together very easy and installed on my pool deck very easily. It appears to be very solid. Now if the weather every breaks here in Ohio we will open the pool and give it a try. I am sure it will be great. Price on-line and catalog were different, In the Swim made it right. There was also a rebate that nobody said anything about but it was on the SR Smith site. Overall great purchase and can't wait to have everyone use it.

      Love "In the swim" I ordered this slide online and made a mistake. I called them and they were very happy to help me fix it. I would never buy my supplies any where else. The slide was so easy to install and we love it sooo much. Best purchase I have bought in along time.

    In The Swim Knowledge Pool: Pool Slides

    In The Swim's Dr. Pool

    Swimming Pool Slides for Summer Fun!

    Pool slides help take fun in the sun to new heights! In The Swim makes it easy and affordable to add a cool pool slide to any swimming pool. Most of our slides are available with EZ Pay, a 4-month payment plan option. Choose from twisting types like the HeliX2 Slide, to the gentle turn pool slides like the Rogue II Slides. In The Swim stocks Inter-Fab and SR Smith pool water slides, in styles and sizes from mild to wild, to have the perfect pool slide for your pool deck layout. For the ultimate pool slide, check out the Vortex Slide, standing 15' tall with over 20' of sliding runway. For Pool Slide Parts, see our Deck Equipment parts pages. 


    Pool Slide layout and water safety envelopeBuying and installing your own in-ground pool slide takes a little planning to choose the best location, and select the best pool water slide for your backyard spaces. 

    Placement of a Pool Slide 

    Most pool slides are placed on the opposite side of the house, or on the far side or one end of the pool, so that you can see sliders from the house, but that is not the most important requirement. For most pools, there are only a few possible locations for installing a pool slide; areas with proper water depth, and enough deck space to install the slide. Good access to water for the slide, which comes from the filter system or from the house supply, can also be a factor to consider. In-ground pool slides also have a direction of curve (left or right), and several color choices.

    Water Depth for Pool Slides

    There are some general guidelines for pool slide water depth requirements. The runway surface must overhang the pool by 3" at a water depth of no less than 36". This depth must increase to 42" at a distance less than 4'-6" from the pool wall. This 42" minimum depth must continue forward in an area that is 13'-6" long and 7' wide minimum. This 'safety envelope' area or space of 13'-6" x 7' x 42" must not intersect with a diving board safety envelope, or the pool safety line. Read the pool slide owner's manual, spec sheets and installation guides carefully to fully understand the pool slide safety envelope and water depth for pool slides.

    Deck Space for Pool Slides

    Pool Slide Footprint Size Chart from In The SwimSome pool slides like the Typhoon Slide, can be installed in pool decks only 4 ft wide, but for pools with smaller concrete pool decks, an enlarged deck or external footer pads are needed to mount the slide legs, while allowing access to the ladder and passage around the slide, without stepping off the pool deck. Because pool water slides are curved and not straight, a larger area may be needed to mount a pool slide to the deck. However, depending on how you angle the slide to the pool, more or less deck space is required. See the More Info tab on each pool slide page to view current slide dimensions and slide footprint. 

    Pool Slide Installation

    Pool slide installation is an easy weekend project of assembling the slide and bolting slide leg anchors to the concrete pool deck. Slide legs and ladders can be installed directly in new concrete, or you can use surface mount slide leg anchors bolted to the concrete with heavy steel lags included. After slide assembly, move it into position and take careful measurements to meet installation placement requirements. After positioning the slide, mark the holes and drill holes for the anchor bolts. Connect your water supply with pipe or hose, and you are ready to slide. See the More Info tab on each pool slide page to view installation manual for full instructions. 

    Above-Ground Pool Slides

    All swimming pool slides are meant for installation on in-ground pools with concrete decks or pads for mounting. Except for the SuperSlide Inflatable Pool Slide, there are no pool slides for above ground pools. Pool slides are not intended for above ground pools, however we have read pool slide reviews about above ground pool owners installing the Cyclone Slide onto a well-built wood deck next to their pool. Although possible, SR Smith & Inter-Fab wish to advise you that using an in-ground pool slide on an above ground pool is outside of the intended product purpose, and will void any warranty or legal claims. 


    In The Swim pool slides are sure to have the perfect fit for your pool. We have EZ Pay on many pool slides, call today and set up a payment plan! Our swimming pool slide experts can answer any questions you may have regarding pool slides, and help you get the slide you want!
