It is important to note that Swimming Pool Lifts are built for various purposes - some to accommodate in-ground and others for above ground pools. Spa lifts are built with similar considerations in mind and the two terms are in most cases interchangeable in terms of the function of the lift involved.

According to current guidelines all Pool Lifts must meet the ADA AA pool lift compliance guidelines set forth. These guidelines cover pool lift location, deck spacing, seat height & width, foot & arm rest, unassisted operation, submergible depth of the lift seat & lift capacity.

Pool lifts may be permanently or temporarily installed. Residential or institution needs will dictate this decision.

The advantage of Portable Pool Lifts is that you can move it away from the pool for storage and keep your clean aesthetics around the pool & protection from inclement weather. Most of the portable pool lifts are less than 100lbs, can be removed from the anchor hole and set inside a storage area. The anchor hole is plugged with typically a stainless plug thereby removing any tripping hazards. Many of today’s portable lifts are capable of clearance of above ground pools or spas at a minimum of 40”. These automatic lift chairs should come standard with battery-assisted operation, chargers, waterproof remote controls and footrests. Look for a chair rotation of 240-360 degrees and a weight capacity of 300-400lbs. These pool lift chairs should be a made from stainless steel construction and a durable epoxy coated finish with min 5 year structural warranty on frame and min 1-2 years on all other parts.

Permanent Pool Lifts have the advantage to reduce the manpower of having to constantly remove and reinsert a lift and are thereby more convenient. This is also an advantage as the disabled person does not have to be concerned with having assistance to set up the pool lift. Depending upon the lift involved the cost can also be less. These lifts should come standard with all features stated above for the best portable lifts.
