Pool automation will put your pool on autopilot. Imagine coming home to a warm, clean spa with jets bubbling and lights on, ready for you to enjoy after a long day at work. With our automated control systems, scheduling and operating your filtration cycles, heating, pool and landscape lighting, sanitizing, waterfalls and fountains all will be blissfully automatic. The swimming pool system is made up of vast amounts of piping, fittings, valves, motors, and subsystems. Controlling these systems in the past could be a daunting challenge especially where vanishing edge swimming pools and complex lighting systems are introduced. Swimming pool automation, controllers and “computers” have changed all of that. System controllers and remote controls have been designed to be push-button simple, with easy-to-read digital displays and step-by-step menu driven instructions.
Whether you include automation in a new construction or pool remodel project, you’ll make pool ownership a much simpler experience. Automated control systems give you easy, one-touch control of pool equipment and features. You can also track and review pool settings and check your water chemical balance
BASIC SWIMMING POOL CONTROLS
ADVANCED SWIMMING POOL CONTROLS
POOL TO SPA MODE
A basic swimming pool controller will typically control at least the switching from pool to spa mode. To switch modes a few things need to happen. The three way valve on the suction side of the pump has to go from the pool to spa suction. On the return side of the pump the same thing needs to take place. This is where the controller comes in. Instead of you having to walk out to the pool equipment you just hit a button and the valves switch automatically.
Most basic controllers also automatically fire the heater to a preset temperature when the spa mode is entered.
Basic swimming pool controllers will generally have at least two other auxiliary buttons that can control features of your choice. Spa jets and swimming pool lights would be an example.
SALT SYSTEM CONTROLS
Basic swimming pool computers also typically have salt system controls built in as well. You can see your salt parts per million, set your production percentage, and initiate a super-chlorinate
Macros allow you to turn on several items with the push of a button. You could name one button “night part”. This may turn on the swimming pool lights, the spa jets, the vanishing edge, the spa heater, the stereo, and the landscape lights.
A telephone module can be installed that will allow you to communicate with your swimming pool while away from home. You could call from the office to have your spa hot and ready for when you arrive home.
ADVANCED LIGHTING CONTROLS
With advanced lighting controls you can decide what color a light produces if you have colored wheel lights. You could have each light come on with it’s own color or have them come on with the same color, but rotate colors in a selected interval.
VARIABLE AND MUILTI SPEED PUMP CONTROL
With advanced systems you can have it communicate with your variable speed pump. This will allow you to significantly reduce your power consumption levels.
USER NAMED FUNCTIONS
You can create your own function names and control how the are put them on timer, or have them be used in a count-down fashion.
REMOTE REPORTING AND CONTROL
Some advanced controllers use your Wi-Fi to communicate with your swimming pool. Others allow access via the www directly to your swimming pool.
The advanced systems as well as many of the basic systems are upwardly mobile. You can upgrade as needed.
