Philadelphia Pool Waterfall Slide

A top NBA player and Olympic Gold  Medalist had a vision of a Philadelphia Pool Waterfall Slide.   He wanted a pool oasis for his kids, one that included his dream slide into the pool.   He had never seen exactly what he wanted, but he was able to describe it.  He had this dream for more than three years.   He is only at this house during the off season, so time was very important.  We had a tight timeline to make this dream come to life.  His kids wanted a cool water slide, and he wanted to make that happen.  A cool water slide coming out of a waterfall, to be exact…

Philadelphia Pool Waterfall Slide: The Challenge

We met the client through his pool contractor, someone we had worked with before.  Our client is a very busy athlete, so we never did get to meet him.  We had a long distance relationship, with him emailing through his team of assistants.  We were able to understand his vision, and emailed him a  rough sketch of what we could do.  He immediately agreed!

We only had one chance to make this right and we were up to the challenge.  Schedules had to be changed and pond builds put off so we could complete this project to be ready when his basketball season ended and his kids finished school.

Philadelphia Pool Waterfall Slide — The Solution

AquaReale built a large natural stone waterfall that holds a curved slide for maximum fun.  The slide is 10 feet and has water jets going down.  The waterfall is at its highest peak is 4 feet tall and took 40 tons of boulder and rock to create the large waterfall.  We also built a set of stone steps, going from the lawn area up to the slide.  These are natural flagstone slabs to match the waterfall.
