I've picked my contractor and signed the contract for a Viking, Island Breeze II in ground fiberglass pool.
The contractor offered a slide, don't remember the model ATM, but we declined due to small size and price.
He (PB) did offer to pre-plumb for water slide for $250, which I elected.
Now I need to decide on a slide before any work starts this week so that plumbing can be installed in correct location.
I think I read all/most posts here about slides, but they are few/several years old now, so trying to see if there are any new/different models/options.
I'm considering what I think is new (for 2014) item called Adrenaline http://www.interfab.com/swimming-poo...drenaline.aspx
From the posts that I did read here, I see that few are using & loving Wild Ride and Turbo Twister.
With a 15 grand-kids ranging from 1-16 y.o. living just 20 miles away , and a 9 y.o. daughter in the house, plus their friends, I'm sure anything we choose will be lots of fun.
I have not experienced any slides outside of large commercial units at municipal pools or water parks, nor do I know anyone with a pool and/or a slide, so I'm counting on the collective power of this community for help and guidance.
