Thread: Pool slide question

    Pool slide question

    I was wondering if anyone had any experience with building their own pool slide? The prices for slides are outrageous and I would love to be able to design and build something on my own. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas to point me in the right direction it will be appreciated.

    I have considered it.. However, most local PS insist that it is a bad idea as people almost always have them removed for various reasons.

    PS... I was also initially shocked by the cost!!

    I'm putting the turbotwister slide in my new pb and it costed about 2300$. Ridiculous I know but In the swim had a same as cash 4 month payoff so it didn't hurt all at once. There are a lot of self made ones that are even more money.

    I suspect a majority of accidents happen regarding diving boards and pool slides, hence a lot of pool companies hesistation
    in recommending them.

    My 3 boys love the slide and it's been a hit with the kids (and adults) at the few parties that we've had.
