Many elderly and disabled are forced to leave their homes because of access limitations. Aquarius systems can be put in a home for less than the cost of selling or moving from an existing residence.

Aquarius Home Elevators and Lifts installed their first water hydralic home elevator In the fall of 1983 at  the Furniture Connection in Port Charlotte, Florida. We knew that our systems could safely lift heavy loads under abusive conditions, but were interested in validating them under heavy usage conditions. That system has been used over 20 times daily, six days per week for over 25 years. A letter from Mark Volpe, the owner of The Furniture Connection, is available upon request.

In the summer of 1986, we installed our first freight off-load cantilevering platform for Solar, Inc. in Fort Myers, FL. While completing the installation we lifted a car and took photographs. Photograph of that installation is on this web site. We have many installations along the Gulf Coast of Florida and other states along the panhandle.

We have an installation at Fleamasters Flea-Market in Fort Myers, FL which has been operational since January, 1993. It is operated approximately 1,000 times per weekend (over 960,000 cycles to date) without maintenance.

After Hurricane Ivan in September of 2004 we had many success stories from our long term customers in Gulf Shores, Alabama, Orange Beach, Alabama and Pensacola, Florida. The storm produced minimum of 8 to15 foot tide surges that removed all stairs and propertie that were below every house. The Aquavator Home Elevator Lifts were still intact with minor repairs needed.

After Hurricane Katrina we started working intensely in Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama with the Red Cross, Salvation Army,Church groups and any organization that needed home elevators or lifts to help the elderly or disabled get back in there homes. We are very proud of the fact we were able to install porchlifts and home elevators to help many family’s restart their lives. We are very grateful that we accomplished many home installations at a non profit rate and still stayed in business.

Our Customers and their testimonies are proof of our commitment; always trying  improve what we do. Thank you to our wonderful customers that keep referring our water hydraulic elevators to make more happy customers.
