    Re: pool slides

    There are many pool slides on Craigslist.

    I suppose that several folks take them with them, when they move out of their residences under less than ideal financial circumstances.

    It looks like all you need to do is add a couple of water nozles at the top and a small recirculating pump.

    Re: pool slides

    I have an upper and lower deck.....top deck spanning 14' from the pool. I bought from craigslist 2 wavy slides (gym equipment) one 10' the other 8' and are connecting them and making a slide from the top deck to the pool.....I have a mister that you hang on roof of deck to cool down (likr at amusement parks) and am going to attach it to the side of the slide.....owners sasid they used gym slides for their pool but sprayed Pam on it for slickness......I don't care for that on my suit or in my pool. I haven't put mine together yet but will need to post a pic when I do.
