Water play facilities/equipment life has always been a hot topic. For the investment in water parks, the service life is equivalent to the profit guarantee, and the service life given by the water park equipment manufacturers is generally 10-15 years. Why are there such different parameters? In addition to the quality of production, water recreation facilities/equipment, just like the surface of automobiles, affects the service life will involve maintenance problems during use, there are many factors such as different climates in various regions.
Let’s take a look at the water rides/equipment—water slide materials, quality requirements and maintenance knowledge:
A. The surface of the water slide should be smooth and free of cracks and uniform in color tone. The glass fiber reinforced plastic used should meet at least three requirements: the resin should have good water resistance and aging resistance; the fiberglass should be made of alkali-free glass fiber, and the fiber surface should be smooth; slide thickness should not be less than 6mm, flange thickness should not be less than 9mm.
B. the inner surface of the slide of the water slide is not allowed to have small holes, wrinkles, bubbles, poor curing, poor impregnation, cracks, defects, etc.; the back side is not allowed to have problems such as poor curing, poor impregnation, defects, burrs, etc.
C. water recreation facilities / equipment maintenance:
If slide was managed in good condition, the service life of water park equipment can be over 15 years.
