Pools of the future

Pools of the future

Fancy living like the Jetsons family? Well, when it comes to your pool you almost can. Automation is here to stay and is revolutionising the way everyday people are taking care of their pools and spas.

Pools nowadays are equipped with multiple accessories, such as an integrated spa, in-floor cleaning, water features, heating, swim jets and multi-coloured LED lights. All of these things can be hard to manage manually. This is where automation comes in, allowing you to control all the devices around your pool at the touch of a button.

Here’s just a few benefits of automating your pool:

Save money on energy bills
How many times have you accidentally left some of your pool equipment running for longer than they needed to be? Having pumps, pool lights, and chlorinators on timers controlled by an automation system means they will only be running for as long as they need to be, saving you associated energy costs. Ask your local Swimart specialist about the latest variable speed pumps, which can save you hundreds off your power bills.

The main advantage to automating your pool is the whole process becomes much simpler. You have control at your fingertips and turn on the spa or heating or lights with the push of a button.

Save time and effort in continuous maintenance work
It can be quite time consuming to manage all the bits and pieces that go into making sure your pool is in running order. An automation system essentially does the hard work for you, such as turning on and off pumps, dosing your pool with sanitiser and monitoring the water chemistry.

Although installing an automated system definitely makes pool and spa care much easier, it is important to remember that you cannot simply ‘set and forget’.

Prevent damage to your pool and its equipment
When you let your pool maintenance slip by the wayside, you may find that your pool becomes host to a myriad of issues that could include anything from incorrect pH balance, cloudy water, mineral imbalances to a full blown algae growth.

These problems can, in turn, cause damage to your pool and its equipment. If your pool is constantly monitored and dosed with sanitiser by means of automation, it is unlikely that these issues would occur in the first place, preventing damage.
