Your swimming pool will need to be maintained on a regular basis long after Austin swimming pool builders have installed it. But that doesn’t mean you have to spend more time than necessary to keep the pool in good shape and the water clean and sanitized.

That’s why “smart” features have been developed, allowing pool owners to use less time and effort taking care of their pools and more time enjoying them.

So, what exactly makes a swimming pool “smart?” Basically, it’s a pool with features that can be controlled right from the convenience of your mobile device, and here are a few of those features.

Colored Pool Lighting

Pool lighting is something that adds a little ambiance and decorates the pool and surrounding area. You can leave the lights a constant color, or you can set things up so that they change from one color to another every so often. You can adjust the colors – and even turn the lights on and off – from a remote, or have them automatically adjusted by setting a timer.

Automatic Water Filler

There will likely be times when you’ll need to top up the amount of water in your pool. Whether it’s from heavy use, a torrential downpour, or cleaning of the filter, water loss is probable. In this case, you’ll need to add some water. But you can easily ensure that the water level remains constant with automation.

Automatic Filter Cleaning

The filter of your swimming pool needs to be cleaned on a regular basis, but you can have this important job automatically cleaned without having to constantly tackle the job on your own. Every week at a certain time (that you set), the sand filter can be automatically cleaned to ensure that the filter is always kept clean.

These are just a few of the many features that can be controlled by a remote or even your smartphone. To create a “smart” pool of your own, consult with your trusted Austin swimming pool builders today.
