What are the defects?

The user may exit the lower section of the slide (flume) before reaching the pool entry point.

What are the hazards?

Exiting the slide before entering the pool poses a fall hazard, which can result in serious injury.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should stop using the pool slide immediately. The slide does not need to be removed from the pool deck.

Consumers who purchased the affected slides will be sent a free slide rail extension kit, which adds height to the lower section of the outer slide wall to prevent users from exiting the slide before entering the pool. The kit is currently in production and consumers will be notified when it is available. The kit and detailed installation instructions will be sent to them and a video will be posted on the website: www.helixslideinfo.com. The slide rail extension kit can be installed by the slide owner in approximately 20 minutes.

Consumers can obtain further information by contacting SRS Australia by emailing info-au@srsmith.com, by calling 07 3812 2283 or by visiting www.helixslideinfo.com.
