What is pool or hot tub automation?
Pool and hot tub automation is simply using technology to your advantage. Pool automation systems control and manage the various functions and features of swimming pools and hot tubs, such as temperature control, water filtration, lighting, spa jets, and more. Automated systems allow for convenient and efficient operations, often through the use of a control panel, smartphone app, or other remote-control devices. By automating these systems, you can save time, energy, and resources, while also enhancing the overall enjoyment of your pool or hot tub.
Why should I use an automated pool and hot tub system?
There are several reasons why you may want to use an automated pool and hot tub system, including:
• Convenience: Automated systems allow you to control and monitor your pool or hot tub from a single, central location, often using a smartphone or tablet. You can adjust water temperature, turn on lights or spa jets, and manage other functions without having to physically be near the pool or hot tub.
• Energy efficiency: Automated systems can help you conserve energy and reduce costs by controlling water circulation, heating, and filtration. Some systems also feature timers and schedules that allow you to optimize energy usage based on your specific needs.
• Improved safety: Automated systems can help you maintain a safe and healthy swimming environment by monitoring water chemistry, temperature, and circulation. Some systems also have safety features such as automatic shut-off in case of an emergency.
• Enhanced user experience: Automated systems can enhance your overall enjoyment of your pool or hot tub by providing customizable features such as lighting, spa jets, and temperature control. With the touch of a button, you can create the perfect swimming environment.
• Ease of maintenance: Automated systems can help simplify pool and hot tub maintenance by automating tasks such as water circulation, filtration, and cleaning. This can save you time and effort, while ensuring that your pool or hot tub is always in optimal condition.
When is the best time to install an automated pool or hot tub system?
The best time to install an automated pool or hot tub system depends on several factors, including your climate, personal schedule, and budget. However, there are two times when planning to implement an automation system is the easiest.
• During construction or renovation: If you are building a new pool or hot tub, or renovating an existing one, this is an ideal time to install an automated system. This allows you to integrate the system into the design and construction of your pool or hot tub, making it easier and more cost-effective to install. We would love to make recommendations if you’re in this situation to help you make the most of your time in the water.
• Before the spring season: Spring and summer are the busiest swimming season as the weather warms, and we recommend installing your automation system before the season starts to give you time to test and make any necessary adjustments.
Ultimately, the best time to install an automated pool or hot tub system depends on your individual needs and circumstances. Call us at 407-699-1952 for a personalized recommendation.
