Although movable pool floor technology has evolved
significantly in recent years, the concept is nothing new. In fact, the
flexibility, versatility, and safety offered by these systems have been
recognized and embraced by public facilities for decades.
Akvo is pleased to highlight a recent project completed at Oak Hill
High; a community high school located in central Indiana. The Oak Hill

regular maintenance. These issues, typical of old hydraulic
installations, prevented Oak Hill from using their facility to its full

technology, Oak Hill shopped around for alternatives.
