The proper installation and planning of engineered splashpads will save you time and money in the long run in terms of maintenance and operational costs and allow you to expand or upgrade your aquatic play solution with ease.

If you are planning for community splashpads, the best option is to hire experts. They are not only knowledgeable but also equipped with the right tools. This will ensure that the work is done correctly and within less time. 

Here is an easy step-by-step guide for the installation and planning of community splashpads:


Analysis and planning of the site

Hire a project engineer who can handle the splash pad’s pre-planning, resource forecasting, scheduling, and other technical tasks. 

Apart from the project engineer, you can also delegate all formalities with your marine designers, landscape architects, and splash pad installers. In addition, an expert aquatic project engineer will assist you in keeping your splash pad on track and on budget.

Evaluation of feasibility

It’s time to assess all of the critical aspects that could influence your aquatic play project’s success. You can start with questions such as:

  • What is the project’s overall cost, including installation, maintenance, and other expenses?
  • What should the water consumption rates be?
  • What type of water management system is required, and which option is ideal for my splash pad?
  • Where does the water for the splashpad come from?

Deciding what type of water management solution is ideal for your splashpad will be a breeze once you answer the above questions.

Drawings for aquatic projects

Prepare aquatic project drawings to generate a visual depiction of all of the splash pad’s essential components. Your illustrations should depict and define the following:

  • The splash pad’s overall layout and the location of each of its play components
  • For each feature, the flow rates, and spray radius
  • Finally, there are the piping diagrams

The project drawings with fine details aid in streamlining the planning, development, and manufacturing processes, as well as lowering the risks involved with the installation of your splash pad.

Get approvals and permits

Consult your local health authority to learn about the specific health code restrictions that apply to your splash pad. Then, applying for permits will save you time and money while also allowing for a faster approval procedure. It’s also vital to figure out what permits you’ll need from the city or state for the installation phase of your aquatic project.

Construction and manufacturing methodologies

All aspects of your aquatic play project have been meticulously planned, analyzed, and signed off on. The big day has finally arrived, and it’s time to start building your splash pad!

It is the final day

It’s been a long road, but today is officially opening day! Community members and children of all ages are giddy with anticipation as they wait to witness what happens when the water is turned on. Then, the fun and games begin with a single press of the activator button!


After reading this guide, you may find the installation and planning of community splashpads as an easy job. However, it is best to connect with experts and guide you through the process for the ultimate precision. It will assure good quality of work and save a lot of time and money.
