How to Automate Pool Care

Nothing is more relaxing than taking a dip in your pool on a hot summer day. But with the summer heat and increased pool use comes innumerable tests, PH balancing, chemical additions, filter cleaning, scrubbing, brushing, and debris removal. After all that you have to be wondering if owning a pool is really all that relaxing after all!

Fortunately there is a way to enjoy your pool and reclaim your summer. Automating your pool care may seem like something out of the Jetsons but it is a tried and tested method of minimizing the amount of time that you need to spend maintaining your pool. That means you’ll spend more time relaxing, and less time on maintenance – all while keeping your pool even cleaner than before!
