Save Time and Money with Pool Automation

Many homeowners have upgraded systems in their homes to automation. Garage doors can be opened with a cell phone and HVAC, lights, entertainment systems and much more can be all controlled from one device. The new technology makes life more convenient and can help manage costs – this includes your swimming pool. If you still have a manual system for maintaining your pool, it may be time to upgrade to a pool automation system.

Money and Time Saving Features

Pool automation systems give you easy access to the controls of your swimming pool and a simple way to manage your pool water and features. From temperature to pH balance, your pool’s systems are right at your fingertips. Most systems can be accessed through a mobile device like a smartphone or tablet; they can also be integrated into most home automation systems to keep all your controls in one place.

For saving money, an automation system can alert you when your chemicals need adjustment. This can help reduce extreme unbalance issues that can cost more to correct and lead to other issues within your pool. Many automation systems also allow control of temperature and water features, helping reduce energy use with remote management – you can turn down the heat when you know you will be gone a few days right from your phone.

Having all your features from lights and waterfalls to temperature and chemical controls in one place saves you time. No need to go out to the pool and check the pH level – you can do it from your couch or even when you are at work with pool automation.

Talk to your local pool service about the option of switching to a pool automation system – it could be worth the investment to save you time and money.

Are Auto Pool Cleaners Effective?

Keeping a clean pool can be a major chore. Manual cleaners and vacuums can do a terrific job cleaning your pool, but they are time consuming if you clean your pool yourself. Another DIY option is an auto pool cleaner. There are several types of auto pool cleaners that can reduce the manual labor needed to keep your pool clean, including robotic, suction and pressure models. But there are issues that can occur with these auto pool cleaners. Knowing the limits of these devices can help you determine whether they are the right option for your pool cleaning needs.

Cleaning Ability

An auto pool cleaner can help reduce the amount of the manual cleaning needed and reduce strain on the pool filtration systems. They collect and remove debris and can help keep a pool maintained. However, they do not all scrub the walls and there are areas they do not reach that will still need manual cleaning.

Maintenance and Troubleshooting

Auto pool cleaners can help reduce the amount of time you spend cleaning your pool, but they do need maintenance and repairs. Common issues that occur can include the hose becoming tangled, clogged filters, clogged pumps and broken parts. Auto pool cleaners are one more piece of equipment that will need maintenance and repairs as part of the upkeep of your pool.

While auto cleaners can be effective, manual cleaning is still needed for areas they do not reach and for scrubbing the walls. A pool service can be another way to keep your pool clean without spending hours of your free time each week. Talk to your local pool service about options in auto pool cleaners and ongoing pool service to decide which would be better for your needs.
