    Pool Temperature monitoring

    Hello all! I am new to the forum and have a question for you pool experts. I am looking for some kind of unit that will measure the temperature and (if possible) the water level of my indoor pool. I want the unit to send me an email if the pool gets below a certain temperature and I would also like information to be sent to a website. This unit would preferably be one that would mount to the side of the pool or can be tethered to the side of the pool, submerged at all times. I know this is a tall order, especially with the website. I have had a hard time finding anything like this, but if someone here knows anything it would be greatly appreciated.

    I can only say welcome to TFP!

    Wish I could tell you I had an answer, but can't say Ive heard about anything that would fit that bill.

    Coincidentally, I was just looking for something smarter than the wireless pool thermometer I just bought at Home Depot, which works fine but I'd like some long term logging so I can track effects of covers and season -- this is one I saw:

    Amazon has it for $120 or so. Reviews are mixed, with reliability and software issues, but might be worth looking at.

    I've not used the wet probe unit yet, but I do run the dry probe La Crosse units around the house for other temperature monitoring and alerting needs.

    You also need the internet gateway unit to make these work. There is a yearly fee for the alerting ability. It's per unit but not a lot of money. No pH monitoring, but maybe this will do what you need?

    I see they also now have a leak/water detection unit. I think I will pick that up and stick it in our water heater tray. But that is to detect a presence of water, not a lack thereof, so probably not what you were looking for.

    thanks for your input guys. the epool system looks like what i need. I would need to do more research on the lacrosse system, it appears to piggy back off an existing lacrosse system.

    There is Vigilant LilyPad that measures temperature, but not water level.
