I went at the end of summer last year (2007) and purchased a water slide for my child. We never put it up and it was not used last year at all.
We ended up getting it on sale and stored it until this summer. When we put it up this summer the blower that blows the slide up would not work, the hose that goes into your water hose was broke and it had a rip in the slide. I took it back to Wal Mart and they told me that even with a receipt they could not do anything because it was bought lasy summer. I explained to them why I paid 200 dollars last year for the slide and not this year and they would not help.
So now we have slide that is no good and they will not help at all!
Monetary Loss: $200.
