You definitely need access to a water hose for this product. You don't need a lot of water for this to work, but a steady stream and more water dispersal is best. You may need to fiddle around with the hose tucked into the top of the slide to help the water flow. This unit uses less water than a sprinkler set for the same amount of time, and since my grass was yellowing this seemed a good alternative to running through sprinklers. The hose connection leaks a lot, but it's not a deal breaker.
My two kids are 6 years old, just about 48" tall. This slide was a lot of fun for them, but judging from their size I would think that once they hit 7 they'll have to think of more creative ways to play with this since the ride down will be a bit short. I think just turning 5 would have been an optimum age for them to get this for the most use (gauging physical ability, likelihood of falling off the top, etc). I like that the bottom of the slide holds just a few inches of water so there's been no hesitation from the kids about landing in it. Using the included inflatable boards makes for a faster ride than trying to slide down without them and the head first, lying down position makes it more exciting.
I tried three alterations to this slide's standard use. First, I put a pop up shade shelter (Picnic Time Summerwinds Portable Pop-Up Sun/Wind Shelter) around the bottom of the slide pool because it was really hot and sunny. It kept the bottom of the pool cool and they could hang out there when they weren't going up and down. I did this knowing that I don't care what happens to the pop-up shelter since it's so hard to fold back up. Second, I used this with the "landing pad" on the underside deflated the first time and inflated the second. This actually had an effect on the play. Inflated, the landing pad plumped up the slide, so the kids went faster and hit the bottom edge of the pool harder. It also pushed the water into a smaller and shallower pool on the bottom and lifted the drain holes a bit so that the water drained out faster. When I did not inflate it the kids did not hit the back rim of the slide and ended their ride in the pool itself. The pool filled up with enough water to almost be a wading pool (few inches deeper) and was bigger (underside pad did not push up into it). So I actually liked how it worked without this pad inflated better. Finally, I deflated the "door mat" piece, tucked it under the wedge and went and got a step stool Rubbermaid 1859074 Step Stool, Large, Gray and Red for the kids to use to climb up. I don't know if I missed the point with how they expected kids to get up there, but without the stepstool they roll around more to get into position (and get closer to falling off) while climbing and ask for help. With the step stool they're just up there without much effort.
The kids love this thing, and although I sat out with them the entire time they only came to me a few times per hour for water in their eyes or requests for more food/drink. What a great day.
First, My daughter (6) LOVES this slide. She is tall for her age (48") and this is still the perfect size for her to enjoy it. We have had our younger friends over, and this is a great slide for 3-4 year olds as well. The pooling at the bottom doesn't get too deep even after an hour of use with the hose hooked up. We have well water (read: REALLY cold, even in the summer) so I usually set this up early like a kiddie pool and fill the bottom with water partially to warm before the kids use it later in the day.
Second, I am surprised at how durable the wake boards are. I inflated them at our initial purchase in May, and other than a touch-up here or there, they have not ripped, shown wear, or lost air.
Third, and my absolute main hang-up with this product is the leaks. I'm sure you'll see this comment in many other reviews as I did, so I knew what I was getting into and thought "what the heck" for the price point and one summer. The product has 6 chambers: The main chamber, which is the wedge shaped base under the slide. A small raft chamber underneath the base of the slide, and at the back for kids to stand on when they are climbing up. The "wall" that surrounds the slide and pool. And then 5 and 6 are the mainly decorative and pointless covers at the top of the slide. (Separate point - I orginally thought the water came down from these, but it actually spills out from the slide itself). Our main chamber arrived with a half-inch tear in the crease of the inflating hole. Since then, there has been a tear in the "raft" under the slide, as well as in one of the decorative awnings. The wall around the slide and the pool also has a leak. So we have issues with 4 out of 6 chambers. I purchased an Intex pool repair kit for $7 with adhesive glue and vinyl, and it masks the problem, but does not fix it.
The best way to find the leaks is to fill a spray bottle with soapy water, fill all of the chambers, and then spray small areas at a time until you see bubbles forming. I found that I wasn't able to get enough air flow this way, so I would have my husband keep the air pumping into the chamber while I sprayed the section and watched for bubbles.
Fourth, set up and clean up time. Not counting the leaks (which require me to leave out our pump and periodically pull the kids off to add air), the whole thing took me about 45-60 minutes to set up the first time. Partially because you have to get used to all of the chambers but also because only the main chamber has a large hole to inflate. All of the others are the size that you would normally see on a pool float and blow it up by mouth. So they take FOREVER to fill. Even after setting it up 5-6 times this summer, it still takes about 30-35 minutes. Clean up is probably my breaking point on the product but it's because of the leaks. If your product stays well inflated, you can easily empty the water, let it dry and then deflate and fold. But if you end up with a situation similar to mine, you pretty much have to dry it with a towel because the partially deflated areas fold over on themselves and trap water. On a good day, it's another 30 minutes to clean up and put away.
