Summer has finally arrived here in the Pacific Northwest. The rain season doesn’t end until around the Fourth of July. That’s why I didn’t set up our swimming pool until last week. Now we have a mild heat wave and our kids love cooling off in the pool. I love seeing the kids playing in the pool, but I don’t exactly like maintaining the pool. That’s why I was happy to receive the new ePool Smart System for review and giveaway on my dad blog.
The ePool Smart System doesn’t clean my pool for me, but it does make my job a little easier. So, what is the ePool Smart System? Basically, it’s a wireless system that monitors the pH, temperature, and sanitizer level of your swimming pool. It consists of a sensor that floats in the water and a receiver that hooks up to your computer (PC and Mac). The floating sensor transmit data to the USB receiver. The data is then displayed in their software. The information displayed includes pool temperature, pH level, sanitizer level, wireless signal strength, and battery level (the sensor is requires four AA batteries).
The ePool system monitors the swimming pool and eliminates spikes and dips in pool chemicals that commonly occur with periodic manual testing or weekly servicing. With ePool, you don’t need a test kit or have to do any calculations. The ePool system tells you what to add to the pool and exactly how much. You can even setup the software to email you alerts so you can stay on top of your pool’s conditions.
I love the ePool system, but there are a couple of drawbacks. First, you need a computer to view the status of your pool. Just about everyone has a computer, but the computer also has be turned on. So if you want to check on your pool, you first have to turn on your computer. Second drawback of ePool is that the wireless transmitter/receiver has a limited range. My computer in my home office was too far from the pool to receive the signal. As a result, I had to installed the software on a closer computer.
