Product Comparison

Edel Immersys FP3
Other permanent pools

Designed for Purpose

FP3 is designed from the ground up, with input from medical professionals, for hospital use.

Some competitor pools are designed to meet a single midwife or unit’s requirements.


Freestanding design is simple and easy to install. Also provides all-round access for mother, midwives and attendants.

Fitted design from competitors may require costly custom-built frame and skirting, and additional tiling. Access may be limited to one side only.

Interior Space

Pool is shaped so that it is almost as wide at the base as the top, providing more space to move around.

Other competitor pools are tapered towards the base, limiting movement, comfort and access.


In line with concerns regarding the effect of water jets on infection risk, none of our products offer these ... and never have done.

Some competitor pools do offer whirlpool functions or jets but this is no longer deemed to be safe in Texas following a case of Legionella.

High Availability

Single-use plug with chain avoids contamination and blockage. Simple design means there is less to go wrong.

Cable-driven plug in competitor pools carries the risk of contamination and blockage. More complex design could result in more problems.

Water Depth

Water depth is the optimum for floating and privacy.

Shallower design of some competitor pools does not allow for floating and reduces privacy.

Safe access

An integral seat-step is safe to use for additional comfort.

Adapted design of competitor pools means there is no seat and the woman must step all the way to the floor of the pool.
