How much does a splash pad cost?
When it comes time to making a decision on the size and the number of water features, this will determine your splash pad cost. However, its OK to keep it simple or go big if you’d like! If your budget is in the lower range, there are many ways to create a fun, exciting splash pad specifically designed to meet your needs.
We have our own in house design team and will work with you on every aspect of designing your custom pad. We can create a 3-D rendering of the final project so you can see exactly what you will be getting before we start the construction, at no cost to you.
Now you’re asking… will this cost me a fortune and will it affect my electric and water bill? The splash pad cost ranges from $65,000- $500,000 for a commercial grade, and the splash pad cost for a residence is around $15,000-$35,000 depending on what’s best for you. There are some other options that can be cheaper but you’ll end up building a splash pad kit and install it yourself. There is an initial cost when filling the tank and depending on what water filtration system you choose, will affect the amount of water that is used.
The re-circulation method, water is held in a large underground holding tank, pumped out onto the splash pad, drains on the wet deck, passes back through several filtration & disinfection steps and back into the holding tank.
The flow through, or fresh water system, water is held in an underground tank, sprayed onto the splash pad and then drains out as waste water.
Depending on your personal needs, both options are good. We promise to keep your splash pad cost down, while delivering a high-end product. If you’re concerned with water costs and economic savings, the re-circulation method is the right choice. However, if you are planing on having kids from 2-5 AND 6-12, we would also suggest doing both types. For more information as to why, contact us here.
The average cost per month to run a splash pad system for about 6-8 hours a day ranges between $20-$40 per month, depending on electric rates in your area. With our custom control box, you can set a timer for how long you want the water to run in increments (15 or 30 min), and simply restarting it by waving your hand or foot, in front of the motion sensor to easily reactivate the water.
A small splash pad is usually 10-20 foot concrete pad with a few spray nozzles. You can keep it simple at that or get fancier by adding size, above ground features and more nozzles. There is also the option to add fiber optic lighting to the water. Increasing the size of the pad gives you more space to add more features. With more features means more water & with more water means more SMILES! Your splash pad cost will be something you won’t regret!
