    Remote pool thermometer

    Anyone recommend any specific remote thermometer for pool temps? I'd like to know what the temp is from the comfort of my recliner. I had a $20 jobbie that I used for my woodstove room, and the manual said the probe was good for spas and pools, but alas the probe went haywire and constantly read 138 degrees, which is a little too warm for me.

    I'm bumping because I'd like to have something too. I've considered some of the weather stations with multiple temp sensors, but I never know if they would tolerate constant immersion.

    I found one possibility. A number of other vendors used to carry this but now list it as out of stock.

    Here are some:

    (I have this one, the temp probe was DOA. They are sending me a new temp probe. This one has a 100' range but it almost needs a direct line of sight. I had to mount the transmitter at the end of a PVC pool which I painted to blend it in. If I had it to do over, I would go with the Brookstone model.)

    At the far end...

    Keep an eye out for range. 100' seems like a long distance until you put a wall or two between the transmitter and receiver.... That is why I am thinking about the original unit from Brookstone.

    I have one from La Crosse... works great. It came with the standard outdoor sensor and then I bought the probe sensor separately. I got it a couple years ago, so not sure if they are still around but I can probably find the paperwork if you want model numbers.

    You can also play some fun pranks when people come over and ask you what the probe is for.

    thanks folks. I like to be able to monitor temps, strange habit/hobby? I have therms all over the house in the winter to try to get the "perfect" airflow for heat so I can spend the least amount of money as possible.
