Edel Immersys specializes in the design and manufacture of labor and birth pools, bringing high-quality, safe and cost-effective solutions to hospitals.

Made in the USA by leading manufacturers American Bath Group, our permanent FP3 labor and birth pool has been designed especially for hospital use, rather than being adapted from an ordinary pool or tub.

It is also simple for you to install and maintain, therefore, providing you with an excellent return on your investment.

Product Comparison

Edel Immersys FP3
Other permanent pools

Designed for Purpose

The FP3 has been designed from the ground up, with input from medical professionals for hospital use.

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


The freestanding design is simple and easy to install and it also provides all-round access for mother, midwives and attendants.

The 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

The pool is shaped so that it is almost as wide as the base as the top, providing more space to move around in.

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


It’s 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.

High Availability

Single-use plug chains avoid contamination and blockage. The simple design means there is less to go wrong.

The cable-driven plug in competitor pools carry a risk of contamination and blockage. A more complex design could result in more problems.

Water Depth

Water depth is the optimum for floating and privacy.

Shallower designs of some competitor pools do 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.
