Retirement Village Pool Hoist

Pool Lifts for Retirement Village

By Accessibility, Pool Lifts No Comments

Dolphin work with retirement villages across the country by providing access solutions and advice. We supplied and installed an i-Swim2 pool lift for this village near Romsey to help their residents get into this stunning pool.

The i-Swim 2 is an Italian designed portable hoist which can be operated independently or by a lifeguard or attendant. It is supplied with a 4 button handset which quietly and smoothly lifts, lowers and turns the chair.

By Accessibility, Hoists, Pool Lifts, Stair Lifts No Comments

The health and safety of our customers is our absolute priority and we hope that you are all safe and well at this incredibly difficult time.

We are very aware that our customer base is among the most vulnerable groups with regard to exposure to Covid-19.

We would like to assure everyone that we are taking this crisis very seriously and are doing everything practically possible to comply with Government advice and guidelines.

Therefore the following steps that we have already taken are subject to review as the situation develops. Please note, this is a condensed version of our safeguarding policy which is available on request.

  • All staff and sub-contractors have been warned to self-isolate if they have either a high temperature or a new continuous cough.
  • If any staff member lives with someone that has symptoms they have been told to stay at home for 14 days.
  • Staff have been made aware of the need to regularly wash their hands with soap and water or use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • All non-essential visits, meetings and travel have been cancelled for the foreseeable future.
  • Our engineers have been issued with masks, gloves and shoe protectors.
  • Before visiting properties our customers are being asked if they have symptoms or have been exposed to people that have symptoms.
  • We have successfully trialled operating our offices remotely so that we can continue to serve our customers if the Government advises all workplaces to close.
  • We have in place a no handshaking policy and are practicing social distancing.

We know how essential the products we supply are to our customers health and safety. We are still installing and maintaining our products wherever possible as we believe it is more dangerous to our customers safety for us not to do so.

Therefore we will do absolutely everything we can to continue to give the very best service possible during this unprecedented crisis.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me directly. You can reach me via email: or by phone on 01276 856060.

PAL 2 Pool Hoist Wheelchair Transfer

PAL2 Pool Lift Added to Portfolio

By Pool Lifts No Comments

We have added the PAL 2 Pool Lift to our line up of pool hoists. This is the updated version of the PAL pool lift. It is completely portable and no fixings to the deck are required. Cost savings have been made by using concrete counterwieghts as opposed to cast iron. The body of the lift is also longer than the original PAL.

All of the other major components are the same as the PAL, however the new design prevents the arms of the lift from being configured to work with more unusual pool layouts. So if you have an upstand or particularly low waterline then you will have to use the original PAL.

PAL Portable Pool Lift for Sale

By Pool Lifts No Comments

East Anglia Childrens’ Hospices have an unused portable pool lift for sale. It is only a few months old.

Upon moving into their new purpose built Hospice, The Nook in Norfolk, it became apparent that the ceiling hoist that they have over the swimming pool was sufficient for their needs and the portable pool lift would not be required.

It is a PAL portable pool lift –
