We have decided to install a pool in our home and have been looking at different water slides. We were undecided on which SR Smith slide to choose and have been considering the Helix 2 , Cyclone and the Slide Away. We don't want to take too much pool deck space and have pretty much decided to start off with the Slide Away which will give us more options to move it around and see how it works and maybe upgrade in the future.

Does anyone own the SR Smith Slide Away and have any comments/reviews or pictures? We are looking at placing our slide near our shallow end which would be 3 1/2 feet deep.

I did some poking around and could not find the water depth requirements for this slide. That will be very important as well as the hose placement to keep kids from tripping on it.

Somebody just moved theirs to the deep end during a renovation project. Most/all of the Sr Smith slides are FAST. Which is awesome until you bounce off that hard/rough plaster bottom time and time again. Unless you’re going vinyl, but still. They don’t feel great to bounce off either. :)
