If you aren't crazy about your kids running and jumping off a diving board a slide could be a fun alternative. Though, even though they won't be springing high up before they hit the water there are still dangers—they'll still be sliding pretty fast.
Make sure your pool meets slide safety guidelines when it comes to pool depth. A slide is a pretty large pool accessory so when it comes to installing one, remember to also take your pool deck size into account. If you don't think you'll have a room to accommodate a straight slide don't give up hope (just that design). Slides also come in curved shapes that take up way less deck space.
* Make sure that kids only go down a slide one at a time—this will help prevent unnecessary injuries.
