Dunk Tank Safety Rules
Be sure to review ALL safety rules with the dunk tank operator and all "dunkees" prior to using our dunk tanks in Connecticut.
Dunk Tank must always have an adult operator on duty when in use. When tank is going to be unattended, always drain water. NEVER LEAVE A DUNK TANK FILLED WITH WATER UNATTENDED! Cordon off a 'danger zone' in front of, to the sides of, and behind the tank. Keep people out of the zone to avoid getting hit by an errant or deflected throw. Children should never be allowed inside this 'danger zone.' Never place the dunk tank on a platform or stage. (NOTE: When filled, the dunk tank weighs over 4,500 pounds.) Keep dunk tank away from electricity. Keep water level filled to at least 8" from the top of the tank. Only one person at a time should be allowed on the seat or in the tank. Keep all non-swimmers, anyone less than 5' tall, or over 250 pounds off the tank. Anyone with medical conditions which may place limitations on their physical exertion (such as, but not limited to: heart condition, pregnancy, back injury, etc.) should stay off the dunk tank. To keep from slipping, the dunkee must always wear rubber soled shoes. Before (and each time) the dunkee climbs on the seat, they must first make sure the seat is securely locked in place and that the safety latch is engaged. The dunkee should use the handles to assist in climbing out of the tank and for 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 toward the front of the tank when coming up out of the water to avoid hitting their head on the seat. Never use hard balls. Never stand or kneel on seat. When being dunked, the dunkee must keep hands on knees and sit forward on the seat. Do not allow anyone to hit target with hands. Do not operate dunk tank during a storm.
