What is the most creative current product you’re excited about right now?
Our company visionary, Sean Henry developed a patented solution that provides year round use of pools and water
in any climate. The automated floor lift system transforms a space and utilizes the pool equipment to do so. This revolutionary lift system sets the bar for entertaining as it creates a multipurpose year round use of features with the ability to transition the surface space at anytime to provide access for other activities. For example, when the pool is not in use, the surface space of a pool can also be used as an entertainment patio, sports court, or whatever environment you desire.
