What Is Pool Automation? 

Pool automation, allows you to connect your pool equipment to one central hub via wifi and a control center. With the power of automation, you can take care of all your pool maintenance tasks with the touch of a button.

Through the convenience of the Pentair Home app, this pool pump controller lets you adjust your pump. The IntelliSync can help you save money by varying your pump speed remotely on your smartphone. The Pentair Home app keeps you ahead of maintenance issues with 24/7 equipment monitoring. Alerts can be sent straight to your phone and if you choose you can even get them sent to your trusted pool service professional.

These systems test sanitizer and pH levels automatically, providing pool owners with real-time water analysis. They’ll know the results of their water balance in an instant, simply by accessing an easy-to-use app and their smart device. It has a single probe that tests Oxidation Reduction Potential (commonly referred to as ORP), pH, and water temperature as water passes through its cell reservoir. ORP is a qualitative measurement of the potential effectiveness of the sanitizer in the pool water to combat bacteria and other contaminants. It’s measured in millivolts. A range between 650-750 mV is ideal for fighting water impurities. Standard test kits measure the amount of sanitizer in the pool water in parts per million. A chlorine reading of 1.0-3.0 ppm is considered in range. However, It does not measure the level of potency to fight waterborne organisms. As chlorine comes in contact with organic materials, its strength is depleted. So, while the chlorine level may still be in range, its oxidizing strength may be insufficient to meet the demand.
