This early model supplied in 1992 is still going strong.
Other birthing pools have a life span of 7-10 years and are not guaranteed for life.
Over time they’ll cost far more as you’ll end up replacing them 3 – 4 times before you need to think about replacing an Active Birth Pool.
This yields significant savings – up to £20,000 over the life of the pool!
And, you’ll also not have to experience the disruption, disturbance and additional cost that refurbishment brings.

As our water birth pools have such a long life span you will not need to think about replacing them for 25 years or more.
Along with the cost of replacing the birthing pools you’ll need to consider the amount of waste material that will be generated by refurbishing the room and the impact its disposal will have on the environment.
Active Birth Pools are also easier to maintain (less chemicals) and more energy efficient (less hot water) which results in additional savings on labour, energy and materials.
When taken together as whole all of these factors demonstrate why Active Birth Pools are the most sustainable on the market -by far!
