1. Ranging in size from 10 to 25 feet, inflatable trampolines have frames with springs supported on top of a large, round inflatable tube. Generally they require 1 to 2 hours to set up.
2. We recommend you use an industrial trampoline pump to inflate the tube. This requires 10 to 20 minutes. Using the air output side of a shop vacuum is also an effective way to inflate a tube.
3. A trampoline on water comes with attachments like water logs and inflatable water slides to maximize your water experience. Water bongos and water launch pods are also available.
4. Regarding leaving your water trampoline in the water for the season, consider the following. 1) Local regulations regarding anchoring and 2) if the area is often exposed to high winds. In parts of the world where water never freezes, bongo trampolines can be left in all year.
5. Inflatable trampolines should be anchored within at least 10 feet of water in an area at least 30 feet from docks, boats, or other obstructions. Anchoring methods will vary depending on water depth, type of water bottom, exposure to high winds, water current, etc.
6. Most inflatable trampolines require a minimum of 60 lbs. of anchor weight. Inflatable trampolines on larger bodies of water may require more weight.
7. Bounce height of your inflatable trampoline depends on the firmness of the tube and the weight and strength of the water bouncer. Inflatable trampolines do not perform the same as land trampolines because the water and inflated tube absorb some of the bounce.
8. Water bouncers are smaller trampolines without frames or springs. They are easy to set up and can easily be stored in a boat or RV. Water bouncers are quickly inflated or deflated in less than 10 minutes They vary in sizes from 9 to 13 feet.
