Operator Benefits

The Derwent Pool offers many benefits to the recovery patient as well as for maintaining levels of fitness. Dogs often enjoy swimming sessions and, therefore, this method is often used for conditioning, maintenance and fun sessions. It is particularly beneficial for increasing flexion in joints, increasing musculature and promoting the use of arthritic or dysplastic joints. Swimming requires more energy that walking, so this modality is also beneficial for increasing cardiovascular fitness and managing obesity.

A preparation guide with ground preparation, electrical and water requirements is provided to ensure that you have everything ready for your installation

Delivery and Installation

Delivery and installation is calculated on a job by job basis. Most installations require a one – two day installation. However new buildings can benefit from having pipes and wires placed in trenches during the build process, these jobs will require additional visits and possibly additional costs.

Note: Because of the large number of variables in different buildings and the different site conditions the composite pool does not have an exterior finish trim panel.

The main variable is the depth the pool is positioned below the ground. Many customers create a trim panel that matches the room décor and can be built to size at the same time as the external ramp and can be covered with the same wall or floor covering.

Because every situation and floor covering is different Westcoast Hydrotherapy do not include the entry ramp on the outside of the pool, we recommend that you wait until all floor screeds and coverings are complete before measuring and building your external entry ramp.
