Moving Floor Swimming Pool Myths Debunked

Moving Floor Swimming Pool patio by Guncast

Moving floor swimming pools are one of the hottest swimming pool trends and it is not hard to see why! When we speak to clients, we often find that any concerns they initially have about moving floor swimming pools are in fact myths. Here we tell you why…

Myth 1 – A moving floor swimming pool will take ages to be covered/uncovered 

When you choose to either uncover or cover your swimming pool, the water remains in place, continually circulating as the floor moves through it, taking just minutes to disappear, reappear, or be adjusted to any depth required.

People are often surprised to hear that a moving floor swimming pool can be fully adjusted within just 15 minutes! That is enough time to get changed and prepared for a swim.

Myth 2 – The moving floor will be creaky and unreliable

Guncast moving floor swimming pools are unlike any other, using patented Akvo Spiralift® technology. Beneath a Guncast movable pool floor is the powerful mechanical Spiralift® technology, originally designed to lift a whole orchestra.

Rather than cables and buoyancy structures, Guncast moving floor pools use a series of extremely compact lifts to perform silent and reliable pool transformations.

Myth 3 – You can’t put much on top of a moving floor pool

In fact, it is quite the opposite! With the help of our expert designers, we can create a moving floor swimming pool with a movable floor that can bear any desired load.

What’s more, when you’re not using the pool for swimming, the covered space can be used for a variety of other activities – from exercising to entertaining, the area provides a new space without adding any additional footprint to your property.

Myth 4 – It’s unsafe to have a moving floor pool with children around

With floors that can be adjusted to variable depths, a moving floor swimming pool is a safer option for families. Adults can enjoy relaxing and swimming at full depths, while children and pets can play in shallower water. The pool can also be transformed into a fully functioning, solid floor in minutes, ensuring total peace of mind where young children and pets’ safety is concerned.
