Key Innovations in Pool Technology Available Today

There is a constant change in technological trends that have popped up in various industries today. The pool industry has not been left behind. Pool owners and manufacturers have been able to come up with innovative solutions for their pool upkeep. From energy consumption solutions to safety and design solutions, everybody can now make the most of their pool.

Below are some modern key innovations in pool technology available today.

Pool Automation System

Automation gives you complete one-touch control of your pool and spa environment. It allows your pool pump, light, spa and other features and functions to turn on and off at designated times. You can program your pool via a remote control, smartphone or on the automation unit itself.

Gone are the days where you had to go through a tedious process of testing and mixing pool chemicals to maintain its overall health. Many manufacturers have designed a system that monitors and automatically adjusts your pool’s chemical levels and keep them optimally balanced.

There is an app that comes with a PH strip attached on your smartphone to be used to test the Ph balance of your pool water. Once you dip it, the strip is scanned by the smartphone camera and results of the chemical content are automatically displayed. This helps save a lot of time and money.

Multicolor LED Lighting

The Light Emitting Diode (LED) systems are lighting solutions that have superior brightness, energy-efficient, with longer operating lifespans than other lights. They have also become increasingly popular for their superb visual drama. These lights have pre-set programs set to rotate rapidly changing lights around the pool in colour themes that relate to different moods.

Chlorine-Free Purification

This kind of cleaning is made possible with ozone, a special form of oxygen. Ozone, when paired with ultraviolet (UV) sanitizing light, the solution acts as a powerful germicidal agent. UV kills cysts, algae, viruses, bacteria, and even chlorine-resistant pathogens and other organic matter that can contaminate swimming pools.

This will lead to the reduced need for chlorine and other chemical usages, which makes your pool much easier to maintain. It will also be friendly to people, and the environment as harsh chlorine causes dry skin, stinging red eyes, bleach-like fumes, and other hazards from chemical-laden water that would destroy plants and other vegetation in your backyard. An ozone and UV purification system saves you both time and money and improves your overall health.

Antimicrobial Filters

These are pool filters with antimicrobial product protection. This prevents your pool filter from becoming slimy from dirt, grease and other particles. The filters can go much longer in between cleanings, and fewer cleanings save time and gallons of pool water that would have otherwise been wasted while cleaning.

Smart Pool Pumps

Lower your environmental footprint by using robotic cleaning systems that use significantly less energy than traditional pool pumps. They involve low-profile fixtures that will pop up automatically to drive all debris down to the drain and out of the pool, saving you the hassle and lots of money with it.


Every pool equipment has a modern automation system that works better than traditional pool cleaning tools. They also conserve energy, thus saving you costs and lowers your environmental footprint while you’re at it. Before investing in these products, however, you can do your research, consult professionals and decide what tools are the most appropriate for your household.
