For homeowners, there are fewer better amenities to have on your property other than a personal pool. Apart from the fun that you and your family will enjoy, swimming offers an enjoyable way to soothe your body and exercise it at the very same time.

Maintaining a pool, on the other hand, is a more difficult task as there are many things you have to keep track of. We recommend that you have a professional pool company to do pool maintenance, however, if you must try to take it on yourself, here are some apps that can help you out. Thanks to the technological boom that we are currently enjoying, especially in the smart mobile devices market, you can now use mobile apps to help you maintain your pool in order to create a safe space for you and your family to have fun in.

Here are some innovative mobile apps that will ease your pool maintenance process.

  1. Swim University

The Swim University app is maintained by a professional pool maintenance company that offers many free and premium features to help pool owners. The app provides a platform where pool owners can ask questions that are specific to the challenges that they face and be given answers. It also collates a valuable list of frequently asked questions for new pool owners to access. The paid version of the app has a premium service where you can communicate directly with pool maintenance professionals on a one-on-one basis. Apart from their list of frequently asked questions, the premium version of the app connects you to a well-curated library of pool maintenance literature for your assistance. Apart from their article resources, you can also view video tutorials that cover most of the common pool maintenance topics.

  1. Instalink Pool Maintenance App

To enjoy safe swimming in your pool, you need to ensure that you maintain a balanced chemical composition for your pool water. Pool chemicals are meant to treat and bacteria present in the water. When applied excessively, however, these chemicals can end up causing more harm than good. Instalink provides you with pool testing strips which you put into your pool. These strips change color depending on the chemical composition of your water. When you upload pictures of your testing strip, the app will tell you about the chemical status of your pool and suggest what you need to add (or reduce) to ensure that your health is not adversely affected when you and your family enjoy a swim.

  1. Pool Heater

If you have a heated pool, the pool heater app provides you with an app that can act as your personal pool thermostat. It fits a gadget on your pool heating pump that allows you to remotely control the pool temperature. Using a Wi-Fi connection, you can remotely see your pool temperature to judge whether it is optimum for you to enjoy a swimming session. If you need to increase (or decrease) the pool temperature, all you have to do is to set your preferred pool temperature in the app and wait until the app notifies you that your optimum temperature has been reached. It also keeps you informed of the status of your heating pump and notifies you when it is faulty or needs a maintenance checkup. Now, how cool is that?

Optimize your pool maintenance schedule by trying these apps (and many others out there). It’s free (mostly), it’s easy, and it’s fun!
