What could be better than sliding down a huge, inflatable water slide on a hot summer day? It’s refreshing, it’s tons of fun, and it’s safe for all ages. Whether you’re hosting a birthday party, a backyard barbecue, a festival, or any other event – or you’re just looking for something totally awesome to do on an ordinary day – water slide rentals are definitely a worthwhile investment.

Yes, there’s no doubt about it; inflatable water slides are amazing. But, before you rent one, you want to make sure that you’re set up for success. How can you do that? Here are some tips to keep in mind…

The Location

First things first: you need to make sure that you have the space to accommodate an inflatable water slide. While there are a variety of sizes to choose from, even the smallest slides do require a fair amount of room. Make sure you choose a location that can comfortably fit the water slide, otherwise you could end up having problems with the setup, which is the last thing you want to happen.

Choose the Right Size

Inflatable water slides come in a variety of sizes. Make sure you select one that will fit into space where you are planning on having it set up. It’s not enough to browse through pictures; consider the dimensions. Measure the area where you’re planning on setting up the slide, and keeping those measurements in mind, look for a water slide that will fit those dimensions.

Water and Electricity Supply

Inflatable water slides need a steady supply of water and electricity. Make sure that the location where you plan on setting it up will have access to both. If you’re setting it up in your yard, for example, a hose and an outdoor outlet should be fine; however, if the slide is going to be used in a public space, such as a schoolyard, a park, or a field, if water and electricity aren’t readily available, you’ll need to make arrangements.

Consider Your Budget

Inflatable water slides are an affordable way to have a great time; but, the prices do vary. You don’t want to spend more than you can comfortably afford, so make sure that you keep your budget in mind when you’re selecting a water slide rental.

Find a Reputable Rental Company

The popularity of inflatable water slides is soaring, and to meet the demands, it seems like companies that offer water slide rentals are popping up everywhere; however (and unfortunately), not all companies are the same. You want to ensure that you are working with a trustworthy company and that you will receive a high-quality rental that is safe, secure, and works properly.

Make sure that the company you select has a great reputation. Find out their credentials, ask for references, and ask how many years they have been in business. Inquire about their process, and ask about a contract. A reputable company will be fully insured, will offer the best quality equipment, and won’t have a problem supplying references.

Get Ready for Setup

Once you find a reliable rental company and you make the arrangements, prepare the space for setup. The day before the waterslide arrives, for example, consider mowing the lawn, make sure that the area is free of rocks, sticks, and other items that could damage the equipment, check the water lines and electrical supply to make sure that they’re working properly. If any furnishings will be in the way, move them. The more prepared you are before the water slide arrives, the easier setup will be.

Follow the Rules

Lastly, before you let anyone use the water slide, make sure you review the rules. While inflatable water slides are safe, accidents can happen, it’s important for everyone to abide by the rules. Monitor the use of the slide so you can correct inappropriate use. The last thing you want is to have someone get hurt because they weren’t following the rules.

By following these tips, you can set yourself up for water slide rental success!
