Pool Chemical Monitoring Systems

There are various types of pool monitoring systems available for commercial and home use. If you're planning on monitoring a swimming pool for regular maintenance, then an automatic system is the best option. However, if you're trying to keep a pool cleaner at home, then a DIY system might be the best choice.


1. Industrial pool chemical monitoring systems

A pool chemical monitoring system is ideal for large swimming pools and aquatic centers. It uses sensors to determine the optimal amount of chlorine and other chemicals to keep the water running smoothly.

A pool monitoring system consists of two components: pH sensors and ORP sensors. The former measure the acidity of the water, while the latter measure the concentration of chlorine.


2. Smart pool monitoring wireless devices

Regardless of the type of pool you have, there are many electronic pool chemical testers that can be installed to monitor its water quality. These gadgets are usually linked to a smartphone. With their wireless technology, they can collect data about the chlorine in the pool.


3. DIY with a portable meter

If you’ve been keeping an eye on your pool for a while, then it may be time to consider an automated system. However, if you prefer to do it on your own, then it may be worth it.

There are two main ways to determine the type of chemicals that you should add to your pool. The first is by using an electronic pH meter and the second one is by an electronic ORP meter.

pH and ORP meters have various shapes and sizes. Many of them accept a variety of connectors, which means they can be used with different manufacturers.

Instead of using a portable pH meter, buy a smart sensor that works seamlessly with iOS devices such as the iPhone. A smart sensor can also monitor chlorine and pH levels.


4. DIY with a pool test kit

A pool test kit is a simple and effective method to monitor the chemistry of your pool. It can be used to identify changes in the water quality.


Regardless of the type of monitoring system you choose, maintaining a well balanced water chemistry is very important to keeping your pool clean and safe.
