Guidelines for Installing a Water Trampoline
You have decided to install a water trampoline to your waterfront resort to provide increased interest and excitement to your guests. This new attraction will add to the thrill of your guests water experience and is bound to draw more customers as well. But keeping the inherent risks and possibilities of injury in mind, you have purchased a top quality inflatable water trampoline that has the thickest padding available. You chose a product that has a heavy duty, galvanized steel frame around the trampoline that will add to its sturdiness and safety. The bounce quality is good, the springs are strong and even the reinforced PVC canvas has a rugged strength unlike any other.
Now, how you actually set up and prepare the water trampoline on the water can make all the difference in the level of safety when customers bounce and jump on it in the water. To begin with, carefully read the water trampoline manufacturerâ€™s instructions provided with the product and ensure that you follow them to the T. Actually setting up a water trampoline is relatively easy but will require some effort along with the right tools. First inflate the tube inside the water trampoline using either a high speed inflator or high output shop vacuum. Ensure that it is properly inflated in accordance with the manufacturerâ€™s
specifications. Under inflation can wear out the trampoline while over inflation places undue stress on the seams. think in terms of the tires on your car, same principles.
The water trampoline has to be securely anchored for the season. So, choose an area on the water that has a lot of open space, i.e., traffic of boats, docks, or any other obstruction that can impede the customers or pose safety risks. The water should be at least 8 to 10 feet deep. It can not be used in a swimming pool. You need to ensure that what is below the water is also clear of any debree or obsticles of any kind that could trap or hurt a participant.
The area should also be totally free of any kind of logs, rocks or other underwater obstructions for at least 30 feet in all directions. The location should not have excessive exposure to wind, and the water trampoline should never ever be used in rough water conditions. You can use concrete anchors or any other type of anchors, but it should be at least 150 lbs in weight. Larger water trampolines obviously require heavier anchors to hold them in place.
Once it has been properly set up, a UV protectant should be regularly applied to the exposed surface of the water trampoline (at least once a month) to ensure the durability and safety of the trampoline. Also, ensure that you regularly check the level of inflation as well as any wear and tear and always maintain the water trampoline properly.
Once the season is over, the water trampoline should be deflated, cleaned and stored properly to ensure longevity and safety until it is ready to reinstall on the water the following year.. To sum up, proper installation, use and maintenance of the water trampoline is essential to avoid potential accidents and disasters of any kind!
