POOL AND SPA ORP AND PH CHEMICAL AUTOMATION
LOW COST INTERNET COMMUNICATION WITH
SMART PHONES, COMPUTERS AND NOTEPADS
SmarterPool has been in the works for over 10 years and and is now a reality thanks to the accuracy and ease of use of the TrueDPD sensor. Calibration of all the sensors is easily accomplished in the calibration menu but typically only happens at installation. SmarterPool is easier to use than most ORP chemical controllers because there is less to setup. ORP Controllers need a pH lockout feature to prevent overfeeding sanitizer if the pH gets too high, this isn’t included because the free chlorine measurement isn’t effected by pH like an ORP sensor. 10 Years ago most commercial pools had very low or no cyanuric acid. With the increased popularity of saltwater chlorine generators most outdoor pools now have cyanuric acid which has a big effect on ORP. This can make it challenging to properly setup an ORP controller to work efficiently when the sun is out, the pool is covered or trees are blocking the sun. The TrueDPD free chlorine measurement isn’t affected by cyanuric acid. ORP Measurements can be effected with high power saltwater chlorine generators and if you do have a salt system make sure to use a gold ORP sensor, or you could instead use the SmarterPool which is not affected by chlorine generators.
