FAQs

At our aquaparks, we carefully determine anchor weights, considering global conditions. We advise using flexible vertical mooring lines with bungee for absorbing movements, while maintaining moorings close to a 1:1 ratio (length to water depth). Snug vertical moorings are crucial in preventing park items from drifting away during windy conditions, though they necessitate additional weight for effectiveness in severe weather.

While we recommend removing park items during storms, we understand this isn’t always followed. Hence, we focus on strategies to secure park items during severe conditions, including swell and storm surges. Mooring requirements vary based on location specifics, and experienced individuals are best suited to assess these needs. Although our suggested weights aren’t mandatory, they serve as a reliable reference point. We’ve never received complaints about park items staying in place, but it’s essential to note that neglecting storm precautions can result in items drifting, such as trampolines seen floating in lakes after storms. Lastly, using smaller weights grouped on a single mooring line is acceptable, making anchor handling easier while ensuring sufficient holding, provided the suggested weight is met.

In our aquaparks, we meticulously calculate anchor weights, taking into account global conditions. Our recommendation involves utilizing flexible vertical mooring lines equipped with bungee for absorbing movements, while we emphasize maintaining moorings at a 1:1 ratio (length to water depth). The snugness of vertical moorings is pivotal in preventing park items from drifting in windy conditions, albeit requiring additional weight for effectiveness in severe weather.

While it’s our advice to remove park items during storms, we acknowledge that this may not always be adhered to. Consequently, we concentrate on implementing strategies to secure park items in severe conditions, encompassing swell and storm surges. Mooring requirements are contingent on location specifics, best evaluated by experienced individuals. While our suggested weights are not obligatory, they stand as a dependable reference point. We’ve never encountered complaints about park items staying in place. However, it’s crucial to recognize that neglecting storm precautions can lead to items drifting, exemplified by trampolines floating in lakes after storms. Finally, employing smaller weights grouped on a single mooring line is permissible, streamlining anchor handling while ensuring ample holding, provided the suggested weight is met.

We meticulously determine our suggested anchor weights with a conservative approach, taking global conditions into account. Our recommendation includes the use of flexible vertical mooring lines with bungee to absorb the rise and fall, while maintaining moorings close to a 1:1 ratio (length to water depth). While snug vertical moorings effectively prevent park items from drifting during windy conditions, they do require additional weight for optimal performance in severe conditions.

In the event of a storm, we advise homeowners and park operators to remove park items, although this is often overlooked. Consequently, we assess the requirements to secure park items during severe conditions, including significant swell and the potential for a storm surge. Mooring needs are location-specific, and experienced individuals are best suited to determine these requirements. Our suggested weights, though not mandatory, serve as a reliable reference point. We have received no complaints about park items staying in place, but it’s important to note that neglecting storm precautions can result in items drifting, such as trampolines seen floating down the lake after a storm.

Lastly, using smaller weights grouped together on one mooring line is acceptable, simplifying anchor handling while ensuring sufficient holding, provided the suggested weight is met.

The proper launcher position is crucial! Achieve optimal results by sitting directly between the handles. Sitting too far forward may result in low launches, while sitting too far back can lead to launches without forward projection, potentially causing collisions with the Jumper.

Equally critical is the Jumper’s landing zone. The jumper should aim to plant their butt directly over the end of the wedge, approximately 3ft (1m) from the inward end of the bag. Landing in the center of the bag yields poor results and may result in a collision with the Launcher. The preferred landing position is sideways sitting. Landing on feet, front, or with legs split can result in sub-standard launches.

Despite our recommendation for homeowners and park operators to remove park items in the event of a storm, this is often neglected. Consequently, we evaluate the measures needed to secure park items during severe conditions, including significant swell and the potential for a storm surge. Mooring requirements will vary based on the specifics of each location, and experienced individuals are best suited to assess these needs. While our suggested weights are not obligatory, they provide a reliable reference point. To date, we have not received any complaints about park items staying in place, but it’s important to note instances of trampolines floating down the lake after a storm.

Lastly, using smaller weights grouped together on one mooring line is acceptable. This not only makes handling anchors easier but also ensures sufficient holding as long as the suggested weight is met.

When considering aquapark items, focusing on mooring rather than anchoring proves beneficial. Due to their size, aquapark items can experience significant movement even in a light breeze. Ensuring the stationary placement of these items is crucial for the safety of swimmers. As a result, we recommend adopting a 1:1 ratio of anchor line to depth, employing a flexible heavy-duty braided bungee to accommodate waves and water level changes. Additionally, we advise using heavy weighted mooring blocks, ground screws, or earth anchors.

Weighted mooring blocks can be obtained from dock and mooring professionals in your region or crafted at home using pre-fabricated forms. Sonotube offers an excellent pre-fabricated form system that is chemical-free and biodegradable. To locate the nearest distributor, you can contact Sonotube’s customer service at 888-766-8823. Alternatively, some individuals prefer creating their own forms using a wooden grid, repurposed car tires, or 50-gallon barrels. Home-poured moorings typically incorporate bent rebar (omega-shaped) or metal anchor eyes for reinforcement and attachment points.

In terms of weight, poured concrete amounts to 4050 lbs. per cubic yard, which is equivalent to 1837 kg per 765 L, or 2.4 kg per 1 liter in metric terms. Here are some examples of weighted anchors:

  • 30” diameter Sonotube w/ poured concrete; 30” x 9” = 551.7 lbs. (250 kg)
  • 30” diameter Sonotube w/ poured concrete; 30” x 18” = 1103 lbs. (500 kg)
  • Square block w/ poured concrete, 24” x 24” x 18” = 900 lbs. (408 kg)
  • Square block w/ poured concrete, 24” x 24” x 24” = 1200 lbs. (544 kg)
  • 50-Gallon barrel w/ poured concrete = 1166 lbs. (529 kg)
  1. Place the product in a safe place with no sharp objects (rocks, glass, etc).
  2. Inflate the product as usual.
  3. Inspect the valve. Make sure the valve plug is not the source of leaking air before inspecting the entire product.
  4. Add a little liquid dish soap to a spray bottle of warm water. Mix thoroughly to ensure that you can get an even amount of soap across the whole mattress.
  5. Spray around the valve first. Escaping air will cause bubbles to form on the surface.
  6. Spray the surface of the product systematically. Start with the seams, followed by the rest of the product.
  7. Mark the leak with a marker once you locate it.
  1. Straps should first be attached to ‘Connector’ items (example: Swimstep, Splashmat, Speedway, Breezeway or Deck) only where a connection is needed. Your configuration determines how many straps are needed; you may use all, some, or none of the straps supplied.
  2. ‘Connector’ items generally go between or attach to feature items. Connectors should not be attached to other connectors.
  3. Use all available rings to make connection. Standard connections use 5 rings. Some items use 3 or occasionally 7 rings/ straps.
  4. After launch, float ‘Connector’ with necessary straps attached into desired position. Note: a matching set of connecting rings is required on feature item.
  5. Attach center strap to center ring on feature item. Connect loosely, then work outward until all straps are connected.
  6. Dive beneath to tighten all straps securely. Dive mask and several attempts may be required. Make sure connection is tight and there is NO GAP between items. Failure to connect items properly may result in injury or death.
