    Pool Slides

    1. 8 years ago
      Favorite go-to house!
      When I heard my brother's grandkids say to my brother "Grandad, this pool is more fun than yours" I knew I had chosen a winning slide. It is rock solid, very sturdy, attractive, and big enough for adults. I could not have chosen a better slide.

      Fun Fun Fun
      This slide is a terrific addition to any pool. Everyone who has used it at my house loves the action and it makes for a great centerpiece for the pool. Negatives: The manufacturer would do us a favor to preplumb the slide as trying to attach the 1" rubber pipe to the slide required herculean strength.

      Great Slide
      I bought this slide for my 5 yr old. Needless to say he loves it. I also enjoy the fast thrilling ride. I am 6 ft and I cannot lay on my back due to the tight turn. Back to my son, it is perfect for him and I can see him using it for at least the next 8-10 years. I had no trouble installing it myself. It took about 6 hours from opening the box to using the slide. You will need at least one other person for the mid section assembly. Great value from In The Swim. Shipping was fast too.

      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.

      This slide is wonderful with the water or without. All you need is a wet bathing suit.

      Assembly was extremely difficult.
      When I received the slide all of the parts were present. When I was assembling the slide it was really difficult to line up the ladder sections. I could not advance the bolt on the one side. After a while it was discovered that the nut wasn’t threaded properly. After purchasing a tap and retapping the hole, the bolt went in. This hang up made the assembly very long and frustrating. For as much as this slide cost, quality control should catch these errors.

      We love it
      Bought this at beginning of summer. My son installed it in one afternoon by himself!! Glad i opted for this one that can be left or right because we changed our minds about where to put it after i ordered. There is always someone using it while swimming. Great purchase!!

      many new pools that we built got this slide
      This is a great slide, sleek looks, easy to install, and the kids will love it. If its plumbed in correctly its got a serious amount of water that rushes out of the top, giving the little ones mach1 speed ( but a safe mach 1 of course ) i do recommend installing a valve somewhere on the line so u can shut it off if u want..but if u open it ( the valve), and shut off one of the other pool returns u can get more water flow to it. winterizing is easy.. blower just blows all of the water out of the ... read more line.. all of my customers are very happy with this product!

      Great slide!
      This is a great slide! Arrived super fast and was so easy to assemble. We have a kidney shaped pool and it is perfect for it. I love the fact that it can be either a left or right slide because we thought we would put it on the left side of our pool at first but we changed our minds after we got it and put it on the right side so all we had to do was change it to the other direction. It's perfect for needs and the kids love it. Very well made, study, and wide enough for even the adults to have ... read more fun too. Looks great also.

      Fun But Loses Water
      We installed the Turbo Twister at our community pool in the Spring of 2008. It is fun and adds enjoyment. One problem however is that the pool slide water does not entirely go into the pool. About 1/3 to 1/2 of the water on the slide pours backwards underneath the lip of the slide, and falls on to the decking. We think this may be a design flaw and or that there needs to be a lip added to just underneath the bottom of the slide that would direct the water to go into the pool, and not back on to ... read more the decking. We are going to check witih S.R. Smith because we cannot be the only people having this problem. Maybe there is a fix. Otherwise its great.

    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 G-Force 360 Slide and the HeliX2 Slide, to the gentle turn pool slides like the City II Slide and 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!
