Place the homemade pool slide so that it hangs over the edge of the pool a bit. You want to make sure that people who use the slide end up in the water, not on the edge of the pool. Attach the slide to the ground, deck or concrete around the pool to ensure it does not fall over when you use it. In some cases it is preferable to anchor the slide with fresh concrete.
