    Welcome!

    I recall some threads about some great deal somewhere a few years back. However, there's just too many hits on the search box to find it fast. You can go check 'em.
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    I have this thermometer that I purchased in 2012 and it is still holding up. I use it in the pool and hot tub. I have bought various others and they only last a few months and then, fall apart.

    I am in Florida and the sun eats away at digital equipment so after a few tries, I steer clear.

    I've said this before but why do all these read down to 30 deg, and up to 120?, some even read down to below 0 deg, really lame in my op. A quality one that reads from 60 deg to 110 would be perfect for the pool or hot tub and the graduations would be easier to read. I guess they just take their normal thermometers and put a float around them to save money, why bother with something better if people buy their junk. I just look at the easy-touch to see the temp but I would gladly pay $30.00+ for a GOOD one to put in the skimmer. I had a couple digital floaters but they both leaked and died. I think they need some better design engineers.

    Have two of these and they seem to be pretty bullet proof. No remote option, but I'm a jug slinger so I have to be at the pool edge all the time anyway.

    So much so that when my robot and this thermometer collided last year, the thermometer won. Had to replace the roller bearings on my Tigershark after the thermometer got wedged in the roller. Needless to say, I now pull the thermometers when I run the robot.
