  1. Check if your pool meets the requirements to have a board installed. You should verify with national standards (for example in US, the ANSI/APSP national standards or alarm deposition in France)
  2. Check the construction of your deck, the number of attachments will depend on the solidity of your deck and its foundation
  3. Check the average weight of your divers, in order to have perfect spring for every diver a standard has to be set.
  4. Compare your input with the models available on the market (3 to 8 anchor points,150 to 400 lbs, different materials)
  5. Finally check aesthetics, nobody wants to ruin a 50.000 + pool with an ugly board.

    Do these boards have plenty of spring?

      Hello Genia,
      Indeed our boards are famous for the natural spring they give. We can adapt the board to your weight so that spring will be ideal.

    I have a customer that is need of a new diving board, she had a 6′ fibre dive board and base. Will this board adapt to an existing base and can you get it 6′?

      Hello Jill,
      There is no problem to make a shorter board (6′). As for the base, best would be to send us a picture of the one you have. Our boards need a specific anchoring.
