about hydrotherapy pools

Our hydrotherapy pools are pleasant, safe and inviting in appearance. Pinelog’s expertise in designing and constructing indoor pools together with the aesthetically pleasing use of our structural glulam timber beams and other materials ensures that our pools look attractive and perform well.  Pinelog's construction materials provide some of the best acoustic performance too, which is another important design consideration.

Hydrotherapy pools are warm water pools usually used by physiotherapists while treating patients who may have physical problems or special needs. Pinelog construct hydrotherapy pools for private individuals, special needs schools, hospitals, private practitioners and disabled groups.  The design of the hydrotherapy pool requires an assessment of the user’s special needs to ensure that it provides appropriate therapeutic benefits.

The size of the pools will vary from a small hydrotherapy pool of 6m x 4m up to much larger ones; the minimum space required for each patient is 2.5m x 2.25m, so for example a 5m x 9m hydrotherapy pool would accommodate up to eight patients. In some cases we build high pressure jets into the pool to provide a resistance to swimming or to have a massage effect. The hydrotherapy pools can also be transformed into a full sensory environment with use of specialist lighting, sound system and fun floats.

The building will have a specially designed heating and ventilation system (environmental control) which will keep the air temperature to the desired level, provide ventilation and control the humidity.  Facilities within the hydrotherapy building include spacious changing areas, showers and toilets including accessible shower/s, wc/s, and wash down beds, with the number and layout being determined by the specific number of users. Separate facilities for physiotherapy staff are also generally built in.  Your Pinelog hydrotherapy pool will be designed and tailored to meet your individual requirements. We look after all aspects of the construction from initial design and planning permission all the way through to project completion, with our experienced contract management team ensuring the development progresses smoothly.

As members of the The Centre for Accessible Environments, we seek to understand and interpret the needs of users in each hydrotherapy pool we design and build.

We were recently honoured to receive two top SPATA Awards for our swimming pool design and construction of Evolution Health & Fitness... more
