Hydrotherapy Pools

Our made-to-measure hydrotherapy pools are truly stunning and full of benefits. We visited one of our recent installations at STEPS Rehabilitation Centre in Sheffield to see how they were getting on with their bespoke Innova hydrotherapy pool. The results are truly astounding.

The many benefits of hydrotherapy are well-known and established in the healthcare sector. Hydrotherapy detoxifies, loosens tight muscles, encourages relaxation, increases the metabolic rate and digestion activity, hydrates the cells, improves skin and muscle tone, boosts the immune system, and improves the function of the internal organs by stimulating the blood supply.

We take a very unique approach with our hydrotherapy pools; gone are the days of high-cost, high-maintenance, and high-infection risk therapy pools.

Innova stainless steel hydrotherapy pools have lower manufacturing and installation costs, require less maintenance, last longer, and are better for infection control. What’s more, our hydrotherapy pools are completely bespoke for each and every client, ensuring that they get exactly what they’re looking for.

Our project management team will be with you every step of the way, right from the consultation to the installation and maintenance.

Why Stainless Steel?

Quite simply, stainless steel hydrotherapy pools are vastly more beneficial than traditional tiled ones. The advantages include:

  • Lower manufacturing costs
  • Lower installation costs
  • Quicker and easier installation
  • Better durability and longer lifespan
  • Every pool is bespokely designed to suit the use and environment
  • The original finishes remain perfect, meaning that no polishing is required
  • Stainless steel looks high-quality and elegant


Stainless Steel Reinforced with Fibreglass

Innova’s hydrotherapy pools have a unique construction. As hydrotherapy pool contractors, we reinforce the stainless steel with fibreglass, which ensures incredible strength without adding too much to the overall weight of the structure. Ultimately, this means that the pool itself can be positioned on terraces and places with structures that do not support heavy loads.

One-of-a-Kind Construction

All Innova hydrotherapy pools are built using a completely unique, patented construction method. Rather than using traditional welding to join the stainless steel sheets, the pieces are perfectly fused together by mechanical anchorages and cold welding. The exterior is formed with fibre layers of multi-axial glass and polyester resins, which is attached to a steel tubular structure for strength.

This unique construction method has a number of distinct advantages:

  • Properties of the material: This method prevents the characteristics and the chemical composition of stainless steel from being altered by high temperature when welding, thus avoiding corrosion in the joints.
  • No micro perforations: With traditional welding, there are often micro perforations which are not visible to the naked eye. After the pool has been used for a while, these perforations can open up, becoming water leaks.
  • Flatness of the material: As the pieces are not joined by traditional welding, they are not prone to contractions or expansions, so the joints stay flat and smooth, and virtually unnoticeable.

Features & Options

We offer a wide range of features and options for our hydrotherapy pools, meaning that the client can completely customise their design to suit their needs. Our CAD teams create completely bespoke designs to match your specifications, so you can include whichever option are most appropriate for the situation. Spas with hydrotherapy needs might also want to consider the diverse nature of our pools. Our hydrotherapy pool specialists can help you specify the pool in the initial consultation meeting.

Some popular features and options include:

  • Water jets
  • Air spa
  • Massage beds
  • Lights
  • Music
  • Whirlpools
  • Waterfalls and cannons
  • Continuous wave systems
  • Adjustable digital controls for lights, temperature, spa, etc.
  • Roll out pool covers
  • Movable pool floors

Hydrotherapy Pool Design & Installation Process

Step 1: Consultation Meeting

The first stage is to book a consultation meeting with one of our hydrotherapy pool specialists. We’ll discuss requirements in depth, and make suggestions based on the needs of the project.

Step 2: Design & Planning

In conjunction with our pool design CAD teams, we’ll produce detailed design and planning documents and specifications.

Step 3: Preconstruction Requirements

Our hydrotherapy pool specialist will provide full preconstruction requirements, including details on the filtration system, the specifications of the concrete support base for the pool, and details on the pump room.

Step 4: Pool Manufacture

The pool will be manufactured in accordance to the specifications, and will pass strict quality control checks at each stage.

Step 5: Pre-Install Checks

Our hydrotherapy pool specialist will arrange pre-install site checks, to ensure everything is ready and correct for installation to take place.

Step 6: Pool Installation

The big day arrives! A full installation team will be on site, along with crane operators, to ensure a smooth and efficient installation.

Step 7: Testing & Commissioning

Our technicians will carry out full testing of each part of the pool systems, and will commission the pool ready for use.

Step 8: Sign-off, Handover & Training

Our team will carry out full training with pool operators and any other interested parties, and will handover the project to the client.

Step 9: Annual Servicing & Maintenance

As with all of our equipment, we offer fair and transparent maintenance and servicing contracts for all the hydrotherapy pools we install.

Sample Plans

The first sample plan shows seated positions, massage beds, air jets, water jets, canyons and waterfalls. The second sample plan shows an example filtration system and pump room layout. Our therapy pool specialists are able to advise on correct specifications and layouts, whilst our CAD teams are able to put together detailed plans as required.
