The PAL is both the first fully portable aquatic lift and the first aquatic lift to use a rechargeable battery as a power source. The PAL is also the first lift to effectively address different types of gutter configurations, essentially providing accessibility to any type of swimming facility. The PAL-Portable Aquatic Lift is the company's flagship product and is available through a network of resellers.
