I am getting ready to sign the contract for a new pool to be installed along with a new build. (I know. As if I did not already have enough to keep me busy! )
Anyway, I am flummoxed as to what options exist for automation of pool chemical dispersal, pool cleaning, heating, etc. exist, and what of those is worth their cost.
I'd like to be able to keep the pool clean and heated properly and chemically balanced, but I also don't mind caring for it to some extent either.
What autoflow, heating, and chemical read-out or treatment options exist, about how much do they cost, and which ones (brands too, please) are recommended for being dependable, useful and worth the expenditure? Does it take all of the work out of the pool, or does it just give me a prompt to make a change to the temps or water balance?
My PB keeps saying the autofill is tied to the plumbing and is not electronic. How does that work?
