Automate Your Pool Chemical Monitoring and Save Big Bucks

Sometimes gadgets end up costing us more than they're worth (I'm looking at you, laserdisc player). They look cool on the surface, and you imagine all the great things you'll do together.

Then you take it out of the box and realize there's a two-hundred page manual to learn and you'll need to spend an hour every day just setting it up and maintaining it. 

Then there are the truly revolutionary inventions. Things that save time, reduce waste, use less energy and other resources, and end up saving you a whole lot more money than you spent in the first place. Gadgets that change your life and lead to world peace (or at least a more peaceful backyard). 

The right pool automation gadgets can change the way you look at your personal swimming hole. We're here to tell you how they can save you buckets of money while delivering a torrent of added value. 

The Value of Time

First, there's the fact that you'll never have to squat down poolside with a series of test tubes ever again. your time is valuable, and you shouldn't have to spend it making a chore out of the pool you bought to relax in. Put that extra hour a week (or more) into mowing the neighbors' lawns and you can make a cool $25—that's $1,300 over the course of a year!

Or you could, you know, just relax instead. Having a little more free time is a valuable thing, too.

Saving on Testing Supplies

You'll also spend a whole lot less on the supplies you need for testing: pH strips, chlorine measuring instruments, UV receptors, and so on. The right automated pool monitoring gadget will keep track of them all, and at a lower cost, too.

Buy Chemicals More Efficiently

Here's where the big savings come into play. First, a good smart pool gadget provides constant monitoring of your pool's chemistry, alerting you the second a dose of chlorine is needed to any time your pH exists the optimal range. That means you can make small adjustments on a regular basis, using a tiny bit of your precious pool chemicals to achieve the perfect balance. 

Without such gadgetry, you won't know you have an issue until you get around to testing, and then you might have to spend days playing around to get things right—swinging the pH too high, then too low as you try to hit the sweet spot, or adding too much chlorine and needing to partially drain your pool to get it back to normal. That's expensive, time consuming, and a plain old hassle. 

Second, a good pool automation gadget will tell you when you need to order more chemicals, so you can keep a lean just-in-time supply that reduces the amount you need to toss due to expiration dates. You'll be helping the environment and your budget by having just enough for all the right things on hand, without ever going overboard.
