It’s almost trampoline season! We know that some of our customers are able to enjoy their inground and above-ground trampolines year-round, but if that isn’t you — ask yourself, is your trampoline summer-ready? You don’t have to do too much to get it ready for fun and exercise for the 2021 summer season.
When you jump on a trampoline you almost immediately get happier! Rebounding helps boost your mood and also helps your lympthatic system get a jumpstart and that helps remove toxins from your body — it’s a win all day! We have yet to see someone jumping on a trampoline that doesn’t have a smile on his or her fact.
Whether you use your inground or above ground trampoline for fitness or fun or both you do need to ensure it’s still safe to use now that summer is almost here. As with any of your outdoor equipment, playground or swimming pool, they all require a bit of an inspection to see if there is any equipment or springs or even the jump mat that needs to be replaced.
Is Your Trampoline Summer-Ready?
Trampolines don’t have too many moving parts but you need to ensure:
- The jump map is still safe to use
- The springs are still all attached and none of them are broken
- The spring safety covers are in place.
We use galvanized metal for the inground trampoline springs to prevent rusting. We also carry springs made of zino or steel as they are also rust-proof metals.
The springs are what give you the bounce. The springs are what hold the mat taut to give you the bounce, too. The more often you jump, the more stress you are placing on the springs and the more often you will want to check and see that they are still safe. Springs can rust but more often, they stretch and that makes them weak.
Cover the trampoline and jump mat and the springs when you’re not using the trampoline to keep it protected from the elements.
Springs are easy to replace and once you do you will be back to jumping and smiling!
