System Options

Storage tank pumped system: Fully pumped where the same water is transferred to and from the storage tank to the treadmill via the plant pack, where the water is filtered, heated and sanitised.

Swimming pool fed system: Pool fed – which is the same as the pumped option but instead of a storage tank, the water is transferred to and from your hydrotherapy pool.

Fresh water system: This works the same as a loft tank. The storage tank automatically starts to fill with fresh water. After the treatment has finished the water in the treadmill is sent to the waste. Service costs are low as there are no pumps or pump running costs. Zero replacement and chemical costs, plus no water treatment courses are required.

Control Panel Technology: Using a dedicated touch control panel you’ll be able to quickly and easily learn how to get the best out of your treadmill with the minimum of training. There is the option to record and review chemical readings and treatments along with their timings.  An overdue reading prompt ensures that the water quality is correct, ensuring the safety of both handlers and animals.

Part Exchange

If you have an old Westcoast Underwater Treadmill, then you can part exchange this against a new one. We will provide you with a quote for your old treadmill once we have inspected it.

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.

"The Westcoast Engineers arrived early despite leaving that morning from the depot at 4am the same day, both very approachable and knowledgeable. Despite ordering a reconditioned unit (3-4 years old) the unit itself is immaculate and is more than able to meet our requirements for treating our patients. The engineers finished installation and advised staff of the controls and how to effectively and appropriately use the kit.
I would 100% buy from Westcoast in the future, for both new and reconditioned items."
