Digital Pool Controls
- Have perfect water quality all the time.
- Reduce ongoing maintenance efforts and cost.
- Reduce energy consumption by the pool system.
First, we designed and implemented a system to continuously monitor all relevant water measurements digitally (PH, free chlorine, redux potential, temperature, turbidity) and automatically dispense necessary chemicals to keep all parameters within a defined range. For this, we leveraged industrial measurement solutions as well as controls originally targeted for commercial pools.
Then, we designed and implemented a centrally-controlled digital system that enables all pumps to run at the optimal fractional power for each circulation setting (Variable Frequency Drives). We added current sensors to all pumps to monitor their power consumption, as well as pressure and flow sensors.
Finally, we created an easy-to-use dashboard, usable on a smartphone and a touchscreen tablet in the pool area, to monitor the status of the pool (PH, temperature, chlorine level, etc) and control/adjust features of the various pool elements (spa, waterfalls, heating, lights).
