Revision of F2374-21a Standard Practice for Design, Manufacture, Operation, and Maintenance of Inflatable Amusement Devices


Rationale: Task group for F2374 had been requested to review and add clarity to section 5 Design specifically water slide pool minimum depths.
Water slides with attached pools have become popular in the summertime particularly in back yard installations. Manufacturers are designing the inflatable water slides with inadequate information for safe levels of water within the attached pools. Minimum level of water needs to be permanently labeled in the water slide so that operators/attendants can maintain the proper level. To my knowledge there is only one manufacturer that has permanent water level label in their pools.
