Swimming pool slides add a whole ‘nuther dimension to your pool enjoyment. We have swimming pools from Mild to Wild at In The Swim.

If you have been looking for a way to add some excitement into your pool, here’s some thoughts on how to approach an installation of a pool slide on your swimming pool.

These aren’t your father’s pool slides! SR Smith offers up the latest & greatest, developed with safety and installation ease in mind, the entire line is also salt pool and sea air friendly – made with completely non corrosive components.

1. Footprint. Women Thin High Heels Sandals Peep Toe Bow Tie Ankle Strap Ladies Sexy Summer Dress Wild shoes can take up a good bit of deck. More than you may think. When looking at our pool slides, click the Specifications Sheet on the More Info tab. This will have a schematic to show you the overall length and width of concrete needed for installation. Slides take up a lot of deck space, and some installations may require additional concrete. You should also account for room for the line of sliders that will develop behind the slide, and an easy way to pass around the slide, without stepping off the pool deck.

2. Location. Most slide manufacturers call for installation in depth of 44″ – 48″ of water. This rules out most shallow end walls and deep end walls. Pool slides need to be installed in water that’s not too shallow – and not too deep, for safety reasons. This depth also needs to be maintained for a distance past the slide exit point, as illustrated in the ‘Water Safety Envelope’ image shown here.

3. Color. It used to be that slides came in any color you wanted, as long as that color was sky blue. Nowadays, you can usually also get white, and many of the newer slides are available in earth tones of granite or buff (gray or brown), to match the natural stone.

4. Left or Right? Depending on how much deck space you have, and the location of the slide, choosing a left or right turn slide can be important in your pool slide fitting your particular pool deck size. Careful measurement of your deck, and a few phone calls to our helpful experts are in order – before you order your pool slide.

4. Tall or Small? We have slides from mild to wild! The taller they are, the larger the footprint, however.

5. Truckline delivery. It would be nice if UPS or FedEx would deliver our pool slides, but they just refuse! I can understand, these boxes would fill their whole truck! Pool slides are delivered by an 18 wheeler direct to your driveway. Our pool slide delivery trucks have a “Lift Gate” on the back, to lower your slide safely to the curb.

There are two important considerations when ordering a pool slide (or any truckline delivery).
1. The trucking company will call you to arrange for a delivery date.Btrada Women Summer Flip Flops Slippers Crystal Style Beaches Platform Sandals Ladies Comfortable shoesWomen Wedge Platform White Sneakers Female Casual Breathable Mesh shoes Lace Up Flats shoes
2. Inspect the pool slide for any damage (rare) before signing and accepting.

6. Price. Of course, price is a consideration. The average price for pool slides is about $3,000. Tube slides, like you may see at water parks and shown below, are priced at $17K, for home pools (if you have the deck space). We have slides in many sizes and price ranges, so adding a pool slide to your pool shouldn’t break the bank.

7. Installation. Can a slide be DIY installed – of course it can! If you can follow the installation manual, you should have no problem. Using a rotary hammer drill, stanchion anchors are epoxied into the concrete deck, and then nuts are tightened down to secure the slide legs. Adding a water supply to the pool slide complicates things a bit, but is usually tapped off of the pool supply (so it doesn’t over-fill the pool if left on), or it can come from the house water supply.

Replace your own inground pool liner, and save thousands of dollars over local installers! Installing your own inground pool liner is easy, when you take it step by step.

I will assume you have already measured your in-ground pool with our liner measuring forms, following the steps in a previous blog post written by Jackie on QPGGP-Women's shoes European and American Pointed Sexy Women's high-Heeled cat-Heeled Women's Single shoes for an inground vinyl liner.

Let’s also assume that you already bought your Premier Standard Women's Strappy Chunky Block High Heel - Formal, Wedding, Party Simple Classic Platform Pump. None of the work below should be done before you have the liner and materials ready. Speaking of materials, let’s start this blog post with a materials list.

  • Wall Foam if desired or needed
  • Floor repair sand or vermiculite

When you get ready to begin, the first steps are to safely drain the pool to the storm drain or far from the pool, where it won’t flow back under the pool. Sanitizer level should be near zero, and the pH should be balanced, to protect your local watershed, but it need not be clean and clear.

If the pool has severe algae and large volumes of leaves and other debris, consider renting a small ‘Trash Pump’. Gas powered trash pumps can pass solids up to 1″ in size. To get every last drop of water, and drain the pool completely, remove the main drain cover and use a sponge and bucket. You can also use a cover pump, or a wet/dry vac or even old towels, to get up the last few gallons. Set aside the drain cover and screws for now.

Hello my friends, summer is almost upon us, and in the spirit of fun, frivolity and friday, how about a post about swimming pools shaped like U.S. states?

Maybe you’ve seen our Valentine’s Day post about Callisto Womens dimple Open Toe Mules, but today we explore pools that take statehood pride to whole ‘nuther level!

Many of these are at travel hotels, or Governor’s mansions, and of course, most of them are located in Texas, (my) home to the most state shaped swimming pools!

Our first state shaped pool isn’t a pool at all, actually it’s a shallow fountain in the state of Alabama at the Centennial Memorial Park in Anniston, AL.

Another Alabama shaped pool, this one at the Governor’s Mansion in the capital city of Montgomery.1TO9 Womens Boots High-Top Lace-Up Adjustable-Strap Low-Heel Warm Lining Round-Toe Cold-Weather Puncture-Resistant Urethane Boots MNS01987Imagine Vince Camuto Women's Caide Mule

Of course, a pool shaped like California, except it isn’t anymore. Inset is what the San Diego Hyatt pool looked like once, before being replaced with a lagoon pool complex.

Florida, the hottest state and the one with the more pools per capita than any other state. The Florida shaped pool at Cypress Gardens was made famous in Esther Williams movies.

Minnesota is full of proud Minnesotans, who will tell you about the pool at the Best Western in Fergus Falls, shaped just like the North Star state.

And over in Michigan, in the middle of the state, in the small town of Gladwin, you can find a pool in the shape of Michigan, at the Rivertown Inn.

In Nebraska, at the popular town of North Platte, you can swim in a pool shaped like Nebraska at the Holiday RV Park & Campground.

At the Governor’s Mansion in Oklahoma City, you can find this pool in the shape of the Okie state, Ziginy Womens Kerin Closed Toe Ankle Fashion BootsMIA Womens Terry Open Toe Casual Ankle Strap Sandalswith the panhandle being an attached spa (with solar cover).

Texas is home to more state shaped pools than any other state, here’s a few of the more well known, including the famous “Texas Pool” in Plano.

Another well known Texas shaped pool is new – in downtown Houston, at the Marriott Marquis Hotel, this lazy river style pool is the toast of the town!
