One of the most requested features from our range is a shallow children’s play area.
Walk in steps are best integrated into the child friendly zones.
A 3.0 m x 3.0 m area or similar with a depth of 450 mm provides a play area at second step level and enables small children to have a defined play zone where they can easily stand.
It is also a comfortable depth for family to supervise play while sitting in the pool and enjoying a cool drink.
In most families, after they have completed their thirty fast swimming laps, the step becomes the zone of social choice.
The L shaped pool is popular with the play area on one side of a clear training lane..
We also have provided tables in the area however from my own experiences they can get in the way and the novelty soon fades.
Consider Volcano jets: These are air bubbles coming up from one big valve the floor and allowing children to have some extra fun.
Also an Air track in the floor: 12 small air jets that have an air blower making the water look like it is a spa.
Massage jet in the walls: 8 water jets with a separate pump to provide adjustable massage for big and little kids.
The surface finish in a play area recommended is smooth Dura quartz plaster which is kind to young sensitive skin.
