Renting A Water Slide For Spring Break

Tuesday, Mar 26, 2019

Spring is a great time for family fun time. The sun is shining, there’s not a chance of rain, and the kids are on Spring Break. What better way to celebrate springtime than with a water slide rental? While the adults catch up with one another and enjoy some burgers off the grill, the kids can use the inflatable water slide to their heart’s content. Water slide rentals are a great way for everyone to have fun while cooling off from the burning sun. Whether you need one for a neighborhood party or just for an afternoon of fun in the backyard with close friends and family, a water slide rental can really take the event to another level. Chances are, you won’t be the only one with a water slide in their backyard! Before you decide to rent a water slide for your next event this Spring, there are a few things you should be aware of.

What To Consider With A Spring Break Water Slide Rental

  • Amount Of Space You Need
  • Water Access
  • Theme
  • Setup

Amount Of Space You Need

Spacing is a major requirement for most water slide rentals. Some water slides are small and require minimal space, whereas other water slides are rather large and can take up a huge area. Depending on how much available space you have, you may need to get a smaller water slide compared to the one you originally wanted. Before you ever rent a water slide, make sure that you measure the space you plan to use for the slide before renting one, as it would be a shame to find the perfect water slide, only for it to not fit. One key measurement to be aware of is height, as many water slides are very tall, and may come in contact with a tree or roof. By first knowing the appropriate spacing you have available, you can then find the right water slide.

Water Access

If you’re going to be running a water slide, you should plan to have an ample water supply available. You need to be continuously running water during the water slide’s entire rental period. Letting the slide get dry while out in the sun can cause those going down to get burned or stick to the slide and not go down properly. If your water access is restricted, you should know prior to renting a water slide to ensure that you get the most out of your rental.


Many water slides and bounce houses have themes built into them, making them ideal for certain parties. A mermaid themed water slide would be ideal for a girls party, while a pirate theme would be great for boys. If you’re uninterested in having a theme for your bounce house, there are plenty of options available.


When setting up your inflatable water slide rental, make sure that it’s on level ground and void of any rocks, sticks, acorns, or anything else that may puncture the water slide. Anchor the water slide to the ground to ensure that it doesn’t slide or fly away in a strong gust. You or TheJumperStore will connect the water slide to the blowers which will then inflate it. Once the water slide rental is completely inflated, prep the water slide with your water source and enjoy!

With this in mind, you and your family will be able to enjoy your water slide all spring break long. If you’re looking for the best water slide rentals in the Chicago area, contact TheJumperStore today by calling us at (773) 756-1919 or visit our contact page!
