Dunk Tank Safety3 Monkeys Inflatables is committed to providing Dunk Tank Safety instructions for their customers. The weight capacity should be 225 lbs max, with no one under 5 feet tall using the dunk tank. We do not allow non-swimmers in the dunk tank, and when the dunk tank is unattended we do require the water to be drained due to the risk of drowning with an unattended dunk tank.
As with anything with water, we ask that you think of a location for the dunk tank to be placed by our professional delivery crew away from electricity, and on level ground for stability. Keep the water level filled at least 8" from the top of the dunk tank. Only 1 person at a time is allowed on the seat or in the dunk tank. Anyone with a medical condition that may place limitations on their physical exertions (such as, but not limited to heart condition, pregnancy, or back injury, etc.) should stay off the dunk tank. To keep from slipping dunkee must always wear rubber sole shoes.
As far as the participants in the dunk tank, they are never allowed to kneel or stand on the dunk tank seat. They are not allowed to have anyone climbing or leaning on the dunk tank while it's in use. No Diving or pushing/shoving around the Dunk Tank.
We ask that you don't allow anyone to hit the target with their hand, only the balls that come with the dunk tank. Lastly and most importantly the Dunk tank adult on duty/attendant and the participant in the dunk tank must be 18+ years of age. To clarify: 3 Monkeys Inflatables does require that there is both an attendant volunteer who understands the rules of the dunk tank and is a minimum of 18 years or older, as well as a volunteer/inside the dunk tank, be a swimmer, and be over the age of 18 years old, within the weight limit of 225lbs max, and 5 feet or taller. We do have a sign-off of these rules that you are required to sign and understand prior to the dunk tank being released for your event. BEFORE, and each time, the dunkee climbs onto the seat, they must first ensure the seat is securely locked in place and that the safety latch is engaged. The dunkee must always use the handles to assist in climbing out of the tank and getting back up onto the seat after being dunked. However, the dunkee must not hold onto the handles while being dunked. The dunkee must move forward toward the front of the tank when coming up out of the water to avoid hitting their head on the seat. When being dunked, the dunkee must keep their hands on their knees and sit forward on the seat. Never operate the dunk tank during a storm.
