  3. Drain water from pool area by stepping on bumper (surrounding pool) with both feet to allow water to escape.  Use broom to sweep out excess water.

Turn on blower/fan to re-inflate house.  Let blower run for 30-60 minutes to help air-dry slide and bounce section.  Try to get the bounce house as dry as possible before continuing with next step.  If bounce house is wet/damp when folded, please notify us when returning it, so we can dry it out further.

    *** THE BEST WAY TO GET THE AIR OUT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL SILLY, BUT IT IS FOR YOU (AN ADULT) TO LIE DOWN NEAR THE FRONT STEP AND ROLL SLOWLY TOWARDS THE VENT TUBES!!! YOUR CHILDREN *WILL* LAUGH AT YOU. HAVE FUN AND ENJOY IT.
