You might think that there’s nothing better than having a splash in the pool when the temperature rises but you can make your pool even more fun for kids and adults alike. How? Simple – by installing a fibreglass pool slide! Here are just some of your options. For more information or help in selecting one for your pool, have a chat with your local pool accessories
About Fibreglass Pool Slides
As you might expect, a fibreglass pool slide is any pool slide where the main structure of the slide is made from fibreglass, a strong yet flexible material. The slides are made from high quality fibreglass and they are then coated with a special type of gel coat or similar, to provide a smooth, drag free surface for users.
Types of Fibreglass Pool Slides
Your new fibreglass pool slide can come complete with a ladder and aluminium supports. You just fix this slide directly into concrete with the supplied brackets. However, if your pool area is paved or grassed, you’ll need to lay a concrete pad to securely fix the slide too. Another option is to buy just the fibreglass section of the pool slide (the part your actually slide on). This is perfect if you want to mount the slide on a timber platform, and it’s great for any DIY enthusiast.
Of course, your fibreglass pool slide is available in a range of colours so that you can choose the one that suits your pool surrounds the best and also that you like the best. You also have options in the actual design of the pool slide – you can have it straight or curved, and they come in different lengths. In some cases, you can even have a complete corkscrew in your slide for the ultimate sliding experience. Your pool slide can be dry or it can be fitted with special hoses that wet the slide, for extra slipperiness! The water for this can be supplied directly from your pool or from a garden hose.
