Today, it’s easier than ever for you to have a swimming pool that requires very little effort on your part. Smart pool automation allows you to maintain, clean, and monitor your pool in a fraction of the time.
If you have a swimming pool or are just starting to research purchasing one, here are 7 smart upgrades that can make ownership and maintenance more convenient.
- Central Management
- Automatic Cleaning
- Smart Chemical Balancing
- Automated Pool Pumps
- Smart Pool Covers
- Automated Lighting
- Smart Heating
1. Central Management System
A smart pool’s Central Management System (CMS) is the brain and control panel. There are several different ways to access your CMS. You can download an app to use with your smartphone and access your CMS even if you are not home.
There are also dedicated smart panels that can be installed inside your home, so you can control and monitor all of the functions of your pool without adding another app to your phone.
2. Automatic Cleaning
Cleaning and maintaining a pool yourself is time-consuming. Adding a self-cleaning feature allows you to freshen things up between professional maintenance services without a lot of scrubbing.
3. Smart Chemical Balancing
Maintaining the correct chemical and pH levels is necessary to keep your pool safe for people to use. With a smart monitor, your system can check the chemical balance and add the ideal amount of chemicals itself. Your pool cleaning company can make sure the system is doing a good job and make any needed adjustments.
4. Automated Pool Pumps
The pump circulates water around the pool and through your filter. Often, pool pumps are not run for the recommended amount of time. Many older models are not energy efficient. Smart pumps run themselves for the right amount of time every day and are more energy-efficient.
5. Smart Pool Covers
According to the Southern Nevada Water Authority, “An exposed pool loses thousands of gallons of water per year to evaporation. Covers reduce evaporation by 90 percent, limit windblown debris, and conserve energy.” Traditional covers are heavy, bulky, and hard to use.
Upgrading to an automatic cover allows you to open or close your cover with the push of a button. Automatic covers offer incredible peace of mind for homeowners who want to prevent accidents, conserve water, save on power bills, and keep their water cleaner.
6. Automated Lighting
With automated lighting, your afternoon swim can seamlessly transition into a night swim without having to worry about when to turn on the lights. Your lights can be scheduled to turn on at sunset or at a specific time. They can even be programmed to add mood lighting, and you don’t have to remember to turn them off when you are done.
7. Smart Heating
Keeping your water warm enough to swim comfortably is easy with automated heating. Your system can monitor its temperature and turn on the heater when your water drops below your ideal temperature.
Set up heating routines, set the ideal temperature for your hot tub or spa, or set up a heating break while you go on vacation – all from your phone or smart control panel.
