    giant pool slides

    Want to make your pool the coolest pool on the block? Big pool slides with long twisting runways and 360 degree spins are more common now at water parks, rec centers and even at local community pools.

    Now available for backyard pools - you too can add a large pool slide, turning hillsides into custom slides with Inter-Fab's BYOS, or adding the largest pool slides like the SR Smith Vortex commercial slide!

    Giant slides have become our most popular add-on feature in recent years. Today's post provides details on the largest pool slides sold today, to see if one might be right for your pool.

    What's Needed to Install a Giant Pool Slide?

    First of all, you need enough concrete to fit the Footprint measurements listed above, plus additional walkways around and to the slide. In many cases, an additional concrete pad is needed to support large pool slides.

    You also need enough water depth and distance in front of the slide. Code requires a depth of 54" at a distance of 54" from slide exit, and continuing at that depth for 9' more. This is called the 'Safety Envelope' for slides.

    Another thing you need for a big slide is a water line run from the pool return line, to deliver 20-30 GPM, depending on model. Use either a 1" PVC pipe underground, or a HD flexible hose, run around the outside of the deck.

    The last thing you need is 1-2 good helpers and a day to install the deck anchors, assemble the slide and bolt everything together. A permit is not needed in most cases to install a pool slide, even these jumbo slides!

    Now you'll need a slide tester! Open the valve to turn on the water and enjoy your new giant pool slide - it's sure to be the envy of every neighborhood kid, maybe even the talk of the town!
