As a pool owner, you know firsthand how important it is to maintain a healthy swimming pool. But what if there was an easier way to stay on top of your pool’s cleaning schedule and system maintenance? In today’s wonderful world of technology, we can make just about any task easier, and yes, that includes your swimming pool! Once you experience the advantages of pool equipment automation, you’ll wonder how you ever did without it.
What is pool equipment automation?
While the name can sound a bit daunting if you don’t consider yourself tech-savvy, rest assured that anyone can operate automation for a swimming pool. Instead of tackling each of your pool’s systems by hand, pool equipment automation is designed to allow you full control over your swimming pool from your smartphone or tablet. Everything from your heater to pumps to your water features is accessed remotely through a digital control panel. All you need is a pool automation system, strong WiFi, and a smart device, and you’re ready to enter a new age in pool maintenance.
Chemical Maintenance Made Easy
One of the most important responsibilities of taking care of a swimming pool is maintaining a proper chemical balance. This usually means testing your water and adding the necessary chemicals to keep your water healthy. With your pool’s automation setup, you’ll be able to check the balance of your swimming pool and program it to maintain your desired levels. This not only means less time spent checking and balancing, but also less waste as your chemicals are precisely measured for your pool.
Tired of having to manually control your heater or pumps? Now you can do it from the comfort of your couch, office, or even bed. Want to invite your neighbors over for a quick swim? All you need to do is hit a button and your pool’s special features kick on — giving you a few extra minutes to finish tidying up the house for company.
Your basic automation system works with typical pool functions, but it doesn’t stop there. You can connect it to an array of features unique to your pool, such as:
- LED lighting
- Motion sensor alarms
- Water leak sensors
- Sound systems
What can I use pool equipment automation for?
Aside from making your daily pool maintenance a breeze, there are other advantages of pool equipment automation. For instance, when you and your family go on vacation, you can double-check that all your systems are set appropriately. This saves both in both the reduction of energy costs and improved peace of mind. Or, if you only use your pool for those special occasions, you can turn on your features to set up a social atmosphere with the press of a button. Need a way to make seasonal pool maintenance easier? Simply adjust your settings to correlate with the off-seasons to save on energy costs and preserve your pool’s equipment.
