Swimming Pool Technology & Innovation in 2022

Jun 1, 2022

Picture this, it’s a cold winter day and you’re in your local pool shop having a minor crisis because the saltwater minerals you need are out of stock and a thick film of debris is slowly consuming your pool at home. You’ve already spent an hour talking to the Pool Shop customer service rep about the difference in pool pump voltage and watts and now they’re advising you that the shop is closing in 5 minutes…

While this might seem like the norm, it certainly doesn’t have to be like this in 2022. Pool maintenance is a time-consuming process and we would always opt for spending less time maintaining our pool on the weekends and more time enjoying it. So, you’ll be happy to know that Pool Builders Pool Shop provides a range of modern and innovative technology that can completely change your perspective on owning a pool.

Here’s our guide to getting the most out of your home swimming pool or spa for the least about of effort!

A Pool Fit For The Future

Smart pool technology is the long-lived dream made a reality! Smart Pools are sustainable, cost-effective and can even be programmed to suit your busy lifestyle! From your smartphone, tablet or PC you can remotely customise everything, starting from the filter levels, up to temperature and lighting.

During the cooler months, you can easily preheat your pool, monitor, when the filter needs to be changed and turn the lights on without having to go outdoors.

Better yet, Smart Pools allow you to schedule maintenance remotely and get all the data on your device. Combined with our Robot Pool Cleaners range and other smart systems, and you can keep your pool in great condition with minimum effort.
