Swimming Pool Smart Tech Tips

Swimming Pool Smart Tech Tips

Swimming pool technology refers to a range of advanced systems and devices designed to help you manage and maintain your swimming pool more efficiently and conveniently.  These technologies can enhance pool safety, improve water quality, and reduce energy consumption. Here’s a few quick tips to pool smart technology.

Pool Automation Systems

  • Pool Controllers – These centralized systems allow you to manage your pool’s equipment, such as pumps, heaters, and lights, from a smartphone or tablet. They can also automate tasks like water circulation and filtration.
  • Timers and Schedulers – Set schedules for pool equipment to run at specific times, optimizing energy usage and water circulation.

Water Quality Monitoring

  • Smart Pool Sensors – These sensors continuously monitor water parameters like pH levels, chlorine levels, and temperature. They send alerts to your mobile device when adjustments are needed. Keep in mind that when using our Waters Choice Pool Enzyme water cleaning system that your chlorine levels will be lower. We recommend .5 - 1ppm chlorine (usually 2-3 chlorine pucks in your chlorine feeder, set on the lowest setting and adjusting when necessary) while still maintaining your pH and Alk levels to balance water.

Robotic Pool Cleaners

  • Robotic Pool Cleaners – These automated devices can clean your pool’s floor, walls, and waterline efficiently. They navigate using sensors and don’t rely on your pool’s filtration system. 

Energy Efficient Pool Equipment

  • Variable Speed Pumps – These pumps adjust their speed to match the pool’s needs, reducing energy consumption.
  • LED Pool Lights – Energy efficient LED lights provide vibrant lighting while using less electricity.

Safety Features

  • Pool Alarms – Smart alarms can detect motion or entry into the pool area, providing added security.
  • Pool Covers – Automated pool covers can be controlled remotely adding both safety and energy saving benefits.

Mobile Apps

  • Pool Management Apps – Download a compatible app to control and monitor your pool equipment, receive alerts, and adjust settings remotely.

Energy Efficiency and Cost Savings

  • Pool smart technology can help reduce energy consumption, chemical usage and water waste, ultimately saving you money on maintenance and operation costs. And by using Waters Choice's Pure Enzymes for Pools, you'll find even more cost savings because you won't need to use the expensive traditional pool chemicals.

  • Regularly maintain and calibrate sensors and equipment to ensure accurate readings and optimal performance.

Finally, by incorporating these swimming pool smart technologies and using Waters Choice Pure Enzyme products, you can enjoy a cleaner, safer, and more energy efficient swimming pool while also reducing the time and effort required for maintenance.  Keep in mind that the specific features and compatibility may vary depending on the brand and model of the devices you choose.
