Buying a Water Trampoline? Read This First
When it comes to water sports, there are really no limits to the fun that can be had. This is
especially true if you have the right kind of tools to make the most of an outdoor water
experience. Water trampolines are one of those things that can be the center of attraction
during any outdoor trip. That said, it is highly important to choose the right kind of water
trampoline to ensure that safety is maintained at all times. Then again, choosing the right
specifications also play an important role in the overall experience.
Spring-fitted water trampolines
Most water trampolines are structurally quite similar to the ones used on land the only
difference being the heavy duty inflatable tube. This inflatable tube keeps the trampoline afloat
on water and also acts as a support system for the trampoline mat. Springs are used to connect
this mat to the inflatable tube giving the required elasticity. It is essential to buy a water
trampoline that has a safety pad covering these springs to eliminate the risk of injury. These
spring trampolines are ideal for anyone looking for a fun-filled experience that is also extremely
Irrespective of the kind of water trampoline you are planning to pick up, you can be rest
assured it will cost you a fair amount because of the high quality requirements. The tube should

endurance. Again, the seams should be RF or heat welded to make sure they don’t give way.
Similarly, all the components used in the trampoline should be resistant to mildew and ultra
Maintenance and care
Even the best water trampolines need at least the minimum amount of maintenance and care.
Though most of these trampolines are made from UV proof material, long-term exposure to
sunlight is bound to cause at least a little damage to the trampoline. Periodic application of UV
protecting products will play a major part in increasing the life of your trampoline. Different
manufacturers recommend the use of different types of protestants so make sure to get a clear
idea of this during purchase.
Again, make sure your water trampoline is properly inflated at all times. There is a good chance
that the trampoline may seem under-inflated during cooler hours of the day. However, once
exposed to the sun, these inflation levels are sure to rise. While under-inflation reduces bounce
and increases wear and tear, over-inflation increase stress on the seams.
A few small steps taken towards storage and maintenance can increase the life of your water
trampoline by quite a few years. Before storage, make sure to clean the trampoline with mild
soap and dry it out properly. Use UV Protectant on the surface and deflate it on a flat, clean
surface. Make sure to remove all the air during deflation. This can be done using a shop vacuum
or an inflator/deflator. Make sure the trampoline is stored in a place out of direct sunlight and
this storage area should be clean and dry.
