A ‘Smart’ Pool is Smart!

  • It seems like everything in the world is “smart” nowadays.
  • A smart pool works exactly how its name implies– by working with all the latest technology to allow you to control pool settings (like lights and temperature) from the convenience of your smartphone. There are different ways to either build a smart pool from scratch or to modify and upgrade an existing one, including hardware installments and the addition of WiFi-enabled products.

Having a smart pool makes owning a pool easier! 

Having a smart pool offers perks that eliminate much of the heavy lifting.

Want to lay back and enjoy the nice, cozy atmosphere?

Simply adjust your pool lights from your device. Talk about relaxation!  

Pool Automation allows you to control the look and feel of your outdoor oasis, along with keeping your pool clean easily and efficiently. 

  • In this article, we break down the smart pool experience and explain just what exactly makes a pool smart.
  • Smart pool heating and lighting
  • You will never need to worry about forgetting to turn off the pool heating or lights again, with today’s smart systems! In addition, you can make your pool a more comfortable and welcoming environment at the touch of a button, ensuring that no matter where you are, your pool can be the right temperature when you want to use it. You can also turn on the pool lights from your phone, or set them to change colour at different intervals, creating a great atmosphere for a pool party.
  • Smart pool pumps
  • Your pool pump is one of the most essential parts of your pool. It is responsible for circulating the pool water so the pool stays clean and there is no chance for algae and bacteria to grow, as well as ensuring the whole of your pool is heated to a consistent temperature with no “cold spots”. However, pool pumps can be extremely expensive to run, using between 1,600 and 2,000 watts of energy. Because of this, many pool owners do not leave them running long enough for them to do their job effectively, so your pool water might not be as clean as you think. A smart pool pump uses up to 85 percent less energy than a traditional pump, so it can safely and affordably be left running 24 hours a day. This means your pool water has the chance to circulate properly, keeping the water cleaner and making sure the entire pool is heated to the same temperature.
  • Smart salt chlorinators
  • Testing the chlorine levels of your pool is a laborious but necessary part of pool maintenance. The correct levels of chlorine need to be in the pool water at all times, as this kills bacteria and keeps your pool safe to swim in. It is also essential to get these levels right so the water maintains the correct pH balance. This is important as the wrong balance can cause irritation of the skin and eyes of people who swim in the pool. A smart salt chlorinator takes the pressure off you by managing its own chlorine levels. It tests the levels in the water and ensures the right amount of chlorine is added at all times, keeping your pool water hygienic and maintaining a safe pH balance, so you can enjoy swimming in your pool without having to worry.
  • Smart self-cleaning pool technology
  • Nobody enjoys cleaning their swimming pool manually, but this long and difficult task has to be undertaken on a regular basis if you want to keep your pool free of dirt and debris. So imagine how much easier your life would be if your pool could actually clean itself.Perhaps you’ve already seen automatic pool cleaning robots, which slowly move back and forth across the pool to vacuum up dirt, algae, leaves, dust and just about any kind of contaminant that regularly finds its way into residential pools. When you want to clean your pool, you simply tap on your smartphone and the nozzles open, shooting jets of water from the floor of the pool up to the top, pushing debris towards the pool drain and circulating the water throughout the pool. Circulating the water from the bottom up is a much more effective cleaning method than a traditional filtration system, which only circulates the top third of the water the system cleans the entire pool, keeping it much safer and healthier. As this is smart technology, you can switch it on from your phone or laptop whenever you want, choosing a convenient time such as overnight, so your pool will be cleaned ready for use the following morning.

As we established, a smart pool has a lot of benefits. Nevertheless, it really all comes down to convenience and financial prowess.

  • Smart pools are, above all else, incredibly convenient. Unlike classical pools, smart pools can be fully automated and require almost no extra maintenance or cleaning.
  • While it’s true that a smart pool and/or intelligent pool add-ons can be quite expensive up front, what many people fail to realize is how much money their smart pool can save them over time. By automating a variety of features and maintenance procedures in your smart pool, you’ll save money each month on energy bills and cleaning materials. In the long run, these monthly savings add up and actually save you money.
