The problem

Austral Pool and Spa Products has recalled its S.R. Smith Helix Pool Slide. Users could fall off the side of the slide before reaching the pool entry point, which could cause an injury.


The S.R. Smith Helix Pool Slide was sold by Austral Pool and Spa Products between September and November 2014.

What to do

All owners in New Zealand have been contacted directly and advised of the recall. They will be provided with a free slide rail extension kit that will increase the height of the lower rail sides.
