There has been a recent spike in artificial intelligence technology. Products like the Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and Nest thermostat have worked to automate our lives. These smart products work in the background without you noticing, helping to reduce maintenance and make your life easier. It’s no surprise that similar products have begun being used by Tampa pool owners.
Here’s a look at automating your pool:
Your pool pump is one of the most important parts of your pool, but it can also be the most time-consuming to maintain. Installing an automated pool system can help simplify the required maintenance. Automated pool pumps can be set to run on a specific schedule so that you don’t have to take time out of your day to do it.
Many automated pool pumps also allow you to connect to your smartphone so that you can monitor your pool remotely.
Automated pool heaters are a great way to get the most out of your pool. Much like an indoor thermostat, an automated pool heater can be used to ensure your pool is always at the proper temperature. If you work during the day, you can tell your pool heater to have the water set to your preferred temperature by the time you arrive home. Automated pool heaters are very efficient and can save you money.
LED lighting is an affordable feature that many pool owners have been adding recently. If you opt to install LED lighting, take it one step further by adding automation to your light system.
You can preprogram settings into your LED lights. For instance, you can tell them to turn dark red between 6 and 8 pm, and then purple from 8 until 10 pm. If you know you are not going to be using the pool on a certain day of the week, automation can be used to tell your pool not to run the light system that day.
Automating your lights can help reduce your electricity bill. Your lights will only run when you want them to. You won’t ever forget to turn your lights off because they’ll do so on their own.
