Found a decent deal (at least it sounds like it) on a used slide, on craigslist. The closest match I found, that matches its appearance, is a Classique slide, from Australia. Who knows. Appears to be about 5 feet tall.
Called the guy up, he just finished burying his cement pond, and was getting rid of everything. He was looking to get at least 100 bucks for this slide. In some of my nerdy research, this seems to be a steal, especially if the slide is fairly new.
Here's my question....he mentioned that it did not require external water, just wet trunks. I have yet to look at this thing, and I'm not sure that my deck is wide enough to handle this one. Do slides have to have permanent anchors in the concrete, or can something be fashioned out of wood for it sit on, pool side, that isn't too tall, and anchored in the yard somehow, so it can be level? I think it's too small for adults, so movement by weight would be slight.
Reason I ask is because I have a sport pool, deep end in the middle, and we do have volleyball games from time to time. I would want this to be somewhat 'scootable'.
Am I an idiot for even considering this?
