The technology industry has recently had some pretty significant advances, and the pool industry has not been left behind. Pool technology has made work easier, saved a lot of money, and helped reduce the environmental print. Pool manufacturers have been able to come up with some innovative solutions for their pools. Some of those are:

Pool Automation System
This system allows you to control all the main functions of your pool and spa environment with the touch of a button. The system can be controlled by an automation system, remote control, or a smart device. It allows features such as the pool pump to turn on and off at designated times.
These systems allow you to control your pool’s pump, lighting, temperature, all with the touch of a button. The advantage of these automation systems is that they conserve energy, easy to use, and very convenient.
Smart Pool Pumps
Save more energy by using robotic cleaning systems—a smart pool pump that automatically pops up from time to time to gather all debris down the drain and out of the pool. You can program the pool pump to low speed on functions such as pool filtration as they are less demanding. It will help you conserve energy faster, save you the hassle of cleaning the pool, and is way cheaper than the traditional pool pump.
PH Balance Levels
The system can also monitor your pool’s chemical levels and automatically adjusts them to keep them optimally balanced. There is no longer a need to spend long periods testing and mixing chemicals any longer.
Do you want to know the exact PH content of your pool? We can confidently say that there is an app for that. It comes with a PH strip that, when dipped in water, instantly provides you with an analysis of the chemical content in water. You will then be able to save time and mix chemicals faster.
Ozone and Ultra Violet (UV) Purification Systems
Chlorine has always been the chemical used by most pools. However, its effects can be harsh on the eyes, skin, and its unpleasant bleach-like fumes. Thank goodness there is an alternative contaminant purification method. Ozone is much more effective than chlorine at killing parasites and other organic contaminants. It’s also much gentler on the skin and eyes.
Ultraviolet purification systems are used in tandem with ozone to emit germicidal rays in the pool equipment to kill 99.9% of disease-causing microorganisms. Furthermore, UV light has no impact on PH levels and gets the job done without any toxic by-products in the pool!
Thanks to pool technology, the time and effort you need for your pool processes are significantly reduced. However, pool technology is not cheap. Automation Systems come at a price ranging from a few hundred dollars to a couple thousand. However, the long-term benefits greatly outweigh the initial cost. Consider getting one for your pool today, and you will be able to enjoy more fun times with your friends and family without all the hassle. Use ozone and UV systems to have a healthier, environmentally friendly swimming environment.
