Top 3 benefits of pool automation

Do you love having a pool, but don’t like to spend time looking after it? Cleaning, maintaining equipment and regularly checking chemical levels can take up a lot of time, but there is a solution.

Over the past decade, there have been major technological advancements in pool automation, meaning pools are becoming more self-sufficient and low maintenance. Check out our top benefits of having a pool controller and switching to pool automation.

It saves you time

Many pool owners are often time poor and don’t always have time each week to measure their chemical levels or clean the pool. Automation connects your pool’s equipment to a pool controller and gives you the power to control your pool’s maintenance from the palm of your hand. Pool controllers give you the ability to monitor the chemical balance of the water and your pump, chemical feeder and chlorinator can all be connected to an automated system.

It’s convenient

Your pool and spa is all about enhancing your lifestyle and a pool controller can let you enjoy your pool with one touch of a button. You can manage and control your pool settings from wherever you are, 24 hours a day.

What’s more, is you have the ability to select and save your favourite settings to suit any season and any occasion. For example, you can create ‘winter’ or ‘summer’ customised settings with specific temperatures and maintenance schedule to suit that season and how often you’ll be using the pool. You can even create a ‘party’ or night time setting to include pool lighting and water features.

It gives you flexibility

Live in your own home of the future with a pool controller. Have you ever been sitting inside and realised you left the pool light on or you’re heading home from work and want to switch on the pool pump? With pool automation you can have remote access to your pool.

Pool controllers give you the flexibility to change your pool’s settings and maintenance schedule to suit you. Maintenance schedules may change due to climate and usage levels and being able to set and forget can give peace of mind knowing your pool is being maintained throughout the year.
