Choose The Right Water Slide For The Kids

By Peter Thompson

What could be more enjoyable than playing with your family in your backyard thus beating the summer heat? Having your own pool to relax in is the best, but without one, there could be another option. The backyard water slide is the answer. It could be a better alternative than going to the beach where lots of preparation has to be done. Food preparation is one of these and by having it in your backyard, it takes away lots of pressure and your kid’s friends can even join the fun.

Choosing the right backyard water slide may be hard to do. You need to inquire what your kids want, what they like in a waterslide, or if they fear high and steep slides. Fun is the ultimate consideration in deciding on what slide to purchase. Safety considerations cannot be overlooked though. Water slides can be slippery and hazardous for younger kids. The design must be carefully selected especially if these are for 3-4 year olds, where there should be less obstacles to trip them. Electrical connections that are used in inflating the slides should be carefully looked into. Designs that are too steep or those with a sudden drop may not be ideal for the smaller kids. Knowing kids to be adventurous though, their insistence on a particular design need a careful study also.

There are plenty of backyard water slide designs that you can choose from. You can choose the quality slides, although priced higher, to the lower priced but still beautiful ones. The higher priced slides may have warranties though, which explains its high pricing and quality.

If your kids are of different age levels, you can have different designs of backyard water slide. Like for example, for your very young kids like toddlers and up to nine years old, the “run and slide” is more suitable and safe for them to have fun. While for your older children can have the more added features and challenging backyard water slide. There are those with two twisted slides, with more sprinklers and even with a basketball activity, and kids can even climb in between wherein water continues to splash down. The ideal water slide for your backyard is the one that is easy to inflate and deflate.

With your backyard water slide, spending your summer days in your outdoor garden can be more enjoyable. Your neighbor’s kids can also be part of the fun enjoyed by your kids.
