At Home in (or on) a Moving Floor Swimming Pool

Moving floor swimming pools are an intelligent solution for luxury residential properties, often where space is at a premium. Cutting edge technology teamed with elite pool design creates a wonderful swimming experience that can be enjoyed for years to come.

Unsure whether a hidden floor pool is the best option for your home? We’ve answered some of your most popular questions to help you decide.

What is a Moving Floor Swimming Pool?

A movable floor swimming pool is a pool that can be transformed to provide an entertaining or exercise space, designed to take any desired load. By installing a swimming pool with a moving floor, the property is expanded without enlarging the footprint or losing any rooms.

How Does a Moving Floor Pool Work?

Using patented Akvo Spiralift technology, the pool floor can also be adjusted to variable depths (or closed off completely), making it safer for children and pets and suitable for aqua aerobics, hydrotherapy and more. Sit back and relax as the swimming pool area is seamlessly replaced with a solid floor that can then be used as a dance function venue, play area, dining hall or gym. The floor roughly takes minutes to lift, safely storing the pool water beneath it and perfectly blending in with the environment.

How Much Does a Disappearing Pool Cost?

A moving floor swimming pool costs from £150,000 depending on the size and swimming pool features desired. Though more expensive than traditional pools, a movable floor requires less heating and fewer chemicals to treat the water, providing a more eco-friendly swimming experience.
