PAL Portable Pool Lift

The PAL is a portable pool lift which requires no fixing to the pool deck and can be moved away for storage when not in use. It has been designed so that individuals with disabilities and mobility impairments can have universal access to any type of swimming pool or spa. The freestanding PAL has become the industry standard pool lift worldwide.

Portable and Adaptable

The PAL hoist is designed to provide flexibility for aquatic facilities seeking to provide access to more than one pool or spa, or to accommodate a user’s desire to enter a single pool in multiple locations. The PAL is available in a Hi-Lo version for facilities with both in-ground pools and above-ground spas, as well as a Spa version for above-ground pools and spas.


Pool Lift Maintenance

Regular maintenance will prolong the life of your lift. Keep all electronic components clean and dry. Keep the Console/Battery Cover installed at all times to prevent moisture from collecting on the Control Box and battery. Excessive moisture collection can affect battery and lift performance and could lead to battery failure and/or the lift failing to operate. If the lift is used outdoors, optional covers are available and recommended.

Using the PAL Pool Lift

The PAL pool lift must only be used on a rigid level pool deck surface with a slope of no more than 2º. The front wheels are rigid and the back wheels swivel to facilitate movement. Both back wheels can and must be locked to prevent movement during transfer to and from the pool. The stabilising arms must be fully extended before each use and be used at all times when a user is seated.
