The lift systems are designed to help individuals with disabilities and mobility impairments access swimming pools or spas. Splash! lifts are permanently fixed to the pool deck. PAL models are portable, free-standing pool lifts that can be fixed to the deck.
This recall includes all the following models sold during this time period. The model number and date of manufacture can be found on the label at the base of the mast. "Splash!" or "PAL" is printed on the base of the lifts.
