The brains behind the operation
Finally, today’s splash pads are built with an operating system that has the feature sequence built in to make sure certain features operate at specific times. For example, when a child activates the bollard, the water will dance in a pre-set sequence and certain toys will turn on at different times.
Depending on the splash pad designer/builder, the operating system can vary greatly—from simple on/off functionality to remote accessibility with the ability to shut the entire system down from a smartphone.
The available products on the market are endless; therefore, it is important for each community to assess their needs to ensure they are getting the water play system that meets their requirements. Splash pads provide fun for children of all ages and abilities, which is why they are so unique and remain popular amongst many communities.
