4 Things To Keep In Mind While Using An Inflatable Water Slide

Who does not like water slides? While most of us prefer to enjoy a good slide in water-adventure parks, but many people like a water slide in their back yard. Many companies produce inflatable water slides. You can find them quite easily in different varieties. Some of these slides also have dunk tanks that give the same feeling as that of a theme park. Now, having a water slide in your home can be tempting, but if you have children, it can be a hazard. Do not worry, if you follow the tips mentioned in the blog, then you and your kids will be able to enjoy the slide without putting yourself in an accident. We want you to enjoy our water slide rentals but also being safe as well.

Tips to follow to use inflatable water slides safely


The following tips are essential for you to follow if you want your family's safety.


Never put anything sharp around the slide


As the make-shift waterslides are inflatable, they can easily be pierced by any sharp object. You should not keep any sharp items around the slide to avoid any accidents. If you are not careful, that pointed object could pierce the slide, and your kid could get seriously hurt. Not only day-to-day items, but you should make sure there are no rocks or stones around the slide as well.

Always take the weight restrictions seriously


If you shop for an inflatable slide, you will note that each of them comes with weight restrictions. In some cases, the manufacturing company of the slides might mention an upper age group. So, you should always adhere to that rule. For example, if the slide label says it is only for children up to the age of 6, you should not let anyone above that age to use it. Usually, people over 300 pounds should not climb up an inflatable water slide.

Inflate the slide smartly


Many people, while pumping up a water slide, overdo it. But the over-inflation of a slide could lead to accidents. As an inflatable slide is like a balloon, pumping it with too much air might make it explode. That is why you should always notice the pressure valve. If you see that the valve is releasing air, you know that it is the time to stop.

Do not start playing in the slide


Many people start roughhousing in their newly bought water slide. Even though the material of the slide is quite robust and durable, but if you are an adult, you should never jump on it. It is not a bouncy adult castle. You should also make sure that none of the kid's friends are jumping on the slide. Too much weight would damage it and would jeopardize you and your family's safety.

The tips mentioned above are pretty crucial for you to follow. If you do not follow these tips, you will be sorry when it will lead to accidents. So, follow the tips to be better safe than sorry.
