What is Swimming Pool Automation?

Pool ownership is fun, but can also be time-consuming. That is where pool automation can help with the tasks and chores that can clutter up your life as a pool owner. Swimming pool automation can help you control equipment and accessories through a one-stop shop control panel as well as on a smart device. Here our Caribbean Pools & Spas team takes a deep dive into what it is all about.

What You Can Control

The latest industry innovations and technology allow for many more components to be automated. You can control a lot of your pool’s equipment, including the pump, filter, heater, lighting and a sound system. There are some pool chemical automation devices as well that can help you keep your water as crisp and clear as possible with the optimal chemical balance. Advanced options may allow for creating special events that have the ability to change your music or water features with just one button. You can also have heater settings that change the temperature of your water as the season changes. A smart pool automation system will connect to your smartphone and allow you to change and monitor your pool right on your phone or device. 

Is Pool Automation for Me?

There are many advantages and benefits to consider when you are weighing adding automation to your pool. Having a system in place can help you save money as your years as a pool owner roll on as it can allow you to maximize efficiency. You can have your filter or heater run at certain times and that can save energy costs and wear and tear on your equipment. You will find that your life as a pool owner can be less hectic if you have an innovative helping hand to take care of maintenance tasks. Also, the systems are flexible and can easily be updated as the technology advances. You can start with a simple system and add to it as you go along and get more comfortable with it.

On the flip side, there are some disadvantages that should be considered before you add an automation system. You do need to be someone who understands technology in order to make the most of your system. You will need help with installation by a professional team of pool automation experts. This is not a do-it-yourself project. Initial costs can add up in the short-term, but pay off in the long-term.

Talk to the Experts

If you are ready to add an automation system or are wanting more information, talk to our experts. Like anything else, you should have a budget in mind of how much you are willing to spend up front, including any installation costs. Start with what you really want at the beginning and you can add extras down the road. Let your team know if you may want to add to your system in the future.
