Arjo Pool Hoists UPDATE

Just a short note to inform you of some information I recently found our about Arjo pool hoists.

Arjo have stopped production of all of their pool hoists. They did so about a
year ago.

As I now work for ArjoHuntleigh which is part of the group I managed to have a conversation with my MD, Matthew Stork yesterday.

He has advised me that sales were none existent as most pool hoists last a long time, if serviced regularly. Also spare parts will only be available for 10years after production, which only gives another 9 years of spares.

I do not know what affect this will have short term, but it could have a disastrous long term affect on pool accessibility for some disabled members.

I know that other companies make pool hoists, but new ones are very expensive to purchase.

It would be good if this could be passed on to all member clubs for theirinformation, or put on the web site, so they can make their service providers aware of this and risk assessments can be made accordingly.

Best Regards
