Ride surfaces will last for many years – some up to 15 years – if the venue properly cares for it. The ride surface has been tested in all climates from the extreme heat to very cold. It is important to keep guests from riding it that have any sharp objects in their pockets or items on the swimsuits that could potentially damage the surface. Over the years the surface will have natural wear and tear. The best cleaning supplies you can use to keep the BLUE is using soap and water. The best advice in surface upkeep is to keep it properly tensioned and don’t let the surface sag. This will help keep the water flow efficient and in return keep your surface riding to the best of its ability over the years.
