Not everyone is going to feel comfortable doing the entire installation of their splash pad kit. For example, at some point, you will need to pour concrete. If you’ve never poured concrete before, it may seem like an overwhelming task. There is also some electrical work that may need to be done as well.  It’s probably better to not attempt to the electrical work on your own if you don’t have experience with that kind of work.

The good news is, it’s easy and usually fairly inexpensive to call in help when it comes to pouring concrete or doing the final electrical work. You can still do most of the installation on your own. When the time comes, arrange for a local contractor to pour the concrete.  You might already know a friend or family member who is an electrician – if not, it’s easy to find one.

Residential splash pads are popular with kids and adults of all ages. Parents with younger children and toddlers love the peace of mind that comes with a splash pad knowing they can let their children play and have fun while avoiding some of the dangers of a swimming pool. Grandparents love having a private water feature in their backyard that they can feel safe letting their grandchildren play in when they come for a visit.
