Benefits of an electronic controller for your pool
How do they work and why would you need one?
Have you noticed that the mechanical things in our everyday lives are becoming more and more high tech? As technology evolves, it becomes easier to find ways to make our own lives a little less challenging if we adopt these new tools and gadgets.
This is true of your swimming pool pump as well. Some swimming pool pumps include an electronic controller. Think of this as the programmable thermostat of the swimming pool world.
Benefits of automatic control
With mechanical swimming pool pumps, you have to do everything manually, from checking the water, to changing the water flow, to turning on the pumping system. With the electronic controller, you do not have to do everything manually.
1. Automatic Control – One of the greatest options of the electronic controller is that it is programmable. This means you can set the whole swimming pool pumping mechanism to turn on and off at certain times of the day so that you do not have to worry about flipping the on switch yourself.
2. Remote Access – You can also manually turn the pump on and off remotely so you do not have to even walk out to the pool pump.
3. Monitoring – The electronic controller also keeps a measure of the salt levels, chlorine levels, and water temperature at a glance. You do not have to spend another moment manually mixing and measuring the water. Instead, you can look at the readout screens to make sure the water is properly salted and chlorinated.
Instead of having to manually set and test everything about your swimming pool pump, the electronic controller can make your life much easier. Since you can count on it to control many parts of the swimming pool pump, you will find that you are left with much more time to actually enjoy your swimming pool and less time worrying about pool maintenance. After all, that is the whole point of having a swimming pool, right?
