There are several aspects to consider when selecting a water slide builder:
Your investment is very important; your business success depends a lot on your investment. We asked some of our park designers and some park consultants and they presented some advices to select a good water slide builder.
History. How long has the company been in business is important, because it tells you how serious and reliable the company is.
Clients. The type of clients in the company's customer list tells a lot. If the clients in the list are important parks then you can presume that the company meets high quality standards for demanding customers. Ask your water slide possible supplier to give you a list of recent clients and ask about their experience with the water slide builder.
Re-Purchase Indicator. If a client is continuously purchasing with the same suppler is because the products and service offered are high-quality. Check with the company's customers if they bought once or several times. Consider also the time that the client has been working with the water slide builder.
Verify design and engineering. Ask for an example of the drawings that you will receive with your project. Compare and demand the same quality and details in your final project drawings. Once again verify with previous clients of your possible water slide supplier, the design and engineering material received when buying aquatic attractions. Visit your water slide manufacturer facilities and verify that he has a specialized design and engineering staff.
Visit and see for yourself the slides. Before buying anything, take the time and visit any installations realized by your possible water slide builder. The same way that you would test, touch and drive a car that you are planning to buy, do the same thing with your water attractions and water slides. Talk to the users, talk to the maintenance responsible, talk to the lifeguards, ask the owner or manager, use the slides, test them, see how your slides will be running after several years installed.
Ask around as much as you can and if you have the time, visit and ride the slides yourself.
