How to Choose the Best Paddling Pool with Slide?

Although we’ve listed above the 6 best paddling pools with slides that we like, choosing them for your own personal circumstances is down to you. There are many factors to think about when choosing the right paddling pool with slide for you!

Some of the most important factors to consider when buying paddling pools with slides include: Size, Age, How to Inflate, Size in Litres, Comfort, Materials, Price, Care and Maintenance, and finally Where to buy paddling pools with slides? Below you’ll find a little information on each to help you pick.

The Paddling Pool Size

Although paddling pools with slides are a great addition to any garden, they are by nature normally somewhat larger than standard paddling pools. You really do need to look at the size and the location available in your garden before you buy one.

The last thing you want to do is to get your heart set on something that you can never fit in your garden!

The Age Suitability

The majority of paddling pools with be age rated at over 2 years old. Now as with anything that holds water, children playing in a paddling pool must always be under supervision no matter how old they are.

Age ratings are only for guidance so as long as you follow all the safety advice you should be fine, but remember to stay with them at all times. Child safety experts, advise that children can drown in a very small amount of water and so you should never leave them alone, not even for a second.

How to Inflate

This is a major consideration for the larger the paddling pool you have. Small paddling pools with slides can usually be blown up with a small electric or hand pump but larger paddling pool adventure centres require larger air pumps in order to inflate them. With some requiring pumps rated at 480w or even 750w, you may be surprised as to how much these pumps can cost.

Size in Litres

Quite clearly the larder the paddling pool you have, the more water you may need to fill it. If you plan on having the pool filled to capacity a number of times a year, you may want to have a look at the associated costs to fill it before you buy.

Comfort

Many paddling pools for toddlers and young children come with built-in padding at the bottom of the slide and in areas whether your child is likely to sit for prolonged periods of time.

Although this may seem a little unimportant, padding is useful as it will keep your child happy whilst they play with little chance of them having a bump on the way down the slide.

Price

Price is a simple one, always spend as much as your budget can afford. Unfortunately as with most things in life you do generally get what you pay for and the more you spend the better quality material your paddling pool will be made of.

Paddling Pool Care and Maintenance

Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions when it comes to care and maintenance.

Clean them regularly to prevent the build-up of dirt and dust and to ensure that your children do not get any stomach bugs or illnesses as a result of dirty water.
