    Wireless Pool Thermometers

    I would like to ask for Feedback on other members selection of Pool Thermometers. Especially the wireless/remote reading types. How and where do I add that into the forums?

    I have had bad experience with the Aquatech Item 4301 marketed (at one time) by Game Inc.com. But their web site is not usable except by email and I can't get them to reply to my email.

    I am currently considering the Ambient Weather WS-14 Wireless 8-Channel Floating Pool and Spa Thermometer at a price of $39.99 from Amazon.

    Does any one have other experience with wireless pool temp measuring devices?

    Re: Wireless Pool Thermometers

    Mike, I use the Acurite wireless Pool & Spa thermometer. Works good for about a year of continual use. Then they fail. I think I am on my forth unit? All the others fail with the sensor. I never have gotten the leaks and corrosion that everyone else complains about. I have even replaced the sensor. I buy them from Home Depot when there on sale for $20. For that price you get what pay for. Hope that helps.

    Re: Wireless Pool Thermometers

    that is exactly the model I bought, I have batteries in it and it is working fine.. I HAVE NOT been able to test in water for extended time yet (pool not build because of flooding in OK ) .. one of the complaint's was water getting in it so I used monster PTFE tape on the threads..

    I tried the Accu-Rite ones and they always leaked. That said, we've had some good reports with them, and one of Mods (Tim5055) has had good luck with his I believe.

    im on my second season with my AcuRite. I like that it interfaces with my AcuRite weather station and publishes my pool temperature to the web so I can look when I travel.

    Yup. For full disclosure, my first one did leak, but it was user error..... Can't blame them.

    They are a available in the garden section of Home Depot. I have Amazon Prime and while 2 day shipping is nice, having it in my hand today is even better for my instant gratification personality.

    btw, if anyone is interested in decoding the signal from the AcuRite 00617, here's a thread where we're trying: Automation: intercepting data from Acu-Rite wireless sensors
