Sandpit Mastery: Important Tips for Safe and Fun Playtime

Important Safety Note: To ensure the safety of both you, the installer, and your children, please read these instructions thoroughly before beginning the positioning and installation of this product.

  1. Utilize Covers:
    • Always cover the sandpit when not in use to prevent the entry of animals and the deposition of inappropriate items like glass or rubbish.
    • Note: The sandpit cover is not a toy and should be removed before allowing children to play.

  2. Maintain Appropriate Depth:
    • Ensure the sand is at a suitable depth for safety and easy raking before each use to check for foreign objects.
    • Rake the sand occasionally during playtime to maintain its quality.

  3. Remove Foreign Items:
    • Promptly remove any objects or items found in the sand. Use a shovel for larger items and consider replacing the sand if contamination is significant.

  4. Promote Hygiene:
    • Encourage children to follow health and safety rules by washing their hands after each play session.

  5. Ensure Good Drainage:
    • Especially if water play is involved, make sure there's proper drainage for the sandpit to dry effectively.

  6. Regularly Change Sand:
    • Replace the sand periodically to prevent the accumulation of mold and ensure a clean play area.

  7. Secure in Adverse Weather:
    • During windy or adverse weather conditions, ensure the product is securely stored to prevent it from becoming a hazard.

  8. Proper Placement:
    • Position the sandpit on a level surface at least 2 meters away from any structures or obstructions.

  9. Avoid Hard Surfaces:
    • Do not install the sandpit over concrete, asphalt, or any other hard surface.

Timber Advice:

This product is crafted from premium timber, which may undergo natural changes over time. These changes may include:

  • Development of openings along the grain, which is normal and does not affect the product's strength or guarantee.
  • Slight warping or distortion, which will not impact safety or enjoyment.
  • Fading due to sun exposure. Treat the timber annually with a water repellent or furniture oil for protection.

After the first year, use a child-safe treatment on the product.

Additional Tips:

  • Remove toys from the sandpit daily and rake regularly to keep it tidy and ensure safety.
  • Clean the sandpit as needed, especially in cases of contamination. Dispose of contaminated sand and allow the rest to dry in the sun.
  • Use disinfectant only when necessary and maintain proper drainage to keep the sandpit dry.
  • Use washed and play sand for best results. Check for sharp objects regularly and consider using a root mat to separate sand from garden soil.

Routine Maintenance:

Regularly check all main parts and fixings for security, sharp edges, and integrity. Replace, oil, and tighten as needed to prevent potential hazards.
