Aquatic Play Maintenance – Winterization

Winter is coming, is your splash pad ready?

The days are getting shorter, the leaves are changing colours and a brisk chill lingers in the evening air... Yes, winter is coming and now is the time to shut down your community's splash pad.

To ensure a trouble-free start-up next spring, it’s important for aquatic play areas to protect their equipment by following a proper winterization process. Ensure your waterplayers are smiling and splashing next spring.

Waterplay Winterization

Seasonal splash pad maintenance is key to a stress-free operating season, and we are here to help you and your service professionals every step of the way.

Did you know that you need to:

      • Drain all feature lines 
      • Inspect all hardware and tighten or replace as required 
      • Remove and clean all spray nozzles 
      • Install winter nozzles and winter caps where applicable 
      • Inspect all accessories for any damage and replace as required 
      • Clean all features of any hard water deposits and deficiencies 
      • Add RV-grade antifreeze to lines for further freezing prevention 
      • And much more...

To help you get started, we’ve prepared a Splash Pad Winterization Checklist. It’s packed with recommended maintenance measures and specific instructions:
