    Slides

    Hope this is the correct area...I'm looking to put a slide in the existing in-ground pool. It's 11-12 feet deep so want a large slide. Looking for pics and advice please. I'm in the Phoenix area so builders advice would be good also. Thanks in advance.

    Re: Slides

    Check with your insurance company first. Many will cancel your insurance for having a slide or diving board. Good luck.

    Thanks for the heads up. We already have a diving board and both are very common here in AZ so I think it's just something the insurance companies have learned to deal with.

    Have you Googled "pool slide"?

    There are a few threads in the forum of people adding slides to their above ground pool ... some just used playground slides with a hose.

    I did but I found slides that where up to 1,300.00 a little to much for a slide. I will check a gain thank you.

    Re: Slides

    That price sounds on the low-side for a pool slide ... they are not cheap. Thus the DIY that a few people have done with playground equipment ... not that I or the forum endorses such things

    Yes I agree they are more than what I expected. I went to Toys R Us and they have some but my issue is that they are to narrow. I will keep searching thank you.

    It is a nice one, I was trying to read the name on the slide but is to small.
