Installing a pool in our backyard has been one of the greatest – and most frustrating – decisions we’ve made. I absolutely love being able to enjoy the beautiful weather and soak in the sun floating around in the pool in the privacy of my own back yard; I love that the kids and their friends are here, instead of running around at some public pool where it’s harder for me to keep an eye on them. I also love having my friends & family over for a grill out and a pool party on the weekends. But what I really don’t love is the frustration of making sure that the chemical levels are safe and effective. I’ve read the articles, watched the videos. But with a good rain, no matter how much I’ve read up, I have to go back and check again and again – and make sure I have the chemicals just right.
What’s really bad is when you’ve measured wrong, and you have to stay out of the pool for 24 – 48 hours (especially if you or your kids had plans to invite people over – been there, done that!) In fact, I’ve gotten so frustrated with it I’ve actually hired someone to start taking care of it for me – which as you can guess, can really add to the cost. That is why I am so excited about an awesome new smart product called pHin.
This super smart product I like to call “smart pool maintenance for dummies” makes pool care easy (even for people like me!) pHin monitors your water quality 24/7 and notifies you on your smartphone when you need to add chemicals. I mean, how much easier could it get? They ship you premeasured doses of chemicals as you need them. So all you do is read the app and follow the instructions to keep your pool clean and safe.
Not only does it make it easy, but super convenient for those busy days when you don’t have time to spend hours testing, measuring and adding chemicals (or you forgot). I absolutely LOVE that it will notify me via my smartphone since we all know that never leaves my side! I can’t get too busy and forget to check (which has happened more often than I’d like to admit), and be sorry by the time the weekend gets here. It will automatically remind me, and for this alone I’m excited!
pHin launches Tuesday June 2nd! Oh, and they offer the same service for hot tubs as well! If you pre-order now, you can get the sensor and 3 months of chemical pods for just $149!
This must be so awesome for people with pools. I wish I was one of them.
That is so great! This is certainly a great alternative to constantly sprinkling powders and hoping you’ve got it right.
This is long overdue! Taking care of a pool is a guessing game a lot of the time. Not anymore!
This would have been great last summer when we had our pool! I’ll have to pass this along to my sister in law they’ve got a nice size pool in their backyard!
Wow this seems so much simpler than what we use to have to do. It would be so nice to receive notifications when you need to add chemicals.
Wow, this is so simple. We always wanted a pool but never got one because of the upkeep. This would have changed our minds.
My parents have a pool in their backyard and my dad has been struggling to keep up with it due to health issues. I will definitely be sharing this with him.
Wow… we had a pool growing up and this would have come in so handy! My Dad would have loved it!
What a great idea. I know that checking the pool is a thorn in my husband’s side. This would make life easier!
Oh wow! This is such a great app to have if you own a pool. Thanks for telling us about it.
This is great! I’m going to pass this along to my brother — he has a pool and this will come in handy!
Now that is nifty. Love this.
Wow, this is so neat. Taking care of a pool can be quite hard!
Apartment Dweller, so no pool and nothing to check but this definitely looks handy for those who do have swimming pools. All my swimming happens on vacation to the carribbean in the Ocean! 🙂

This is so cool! We have a pool and this would save so much time.
This looks amazing! We always had a pool guy, but this takes the guess work out! Now all it needs to do is figure out a way to vacuum up all the leaves too and it would be perfect!
Having the reminders is so great! I know I all too often forget things like that.
Wow, this is high tech pool care! Sounds like a great system for pool owners
This does sound like a great way to help remember to add the chemicals! I don’t have a pool, but if I did, I’d certainly use this!
I need this! I still haven’t opened the pool yet. Every time I get a day off, it rains. For me, it really hasn’t been super hot to swim. I know I need it done by July when it really gets hot here.
This sounds so helpful! I really would love to have a pool but the upkeep is part of what is stopping us. Looks like there are easier ways to keep up with it than I though!
This is such a great idea. I have a few friends with pools and i know they hate dealing with the chemicals. I will have to share this with them.
I wish pHin was around when we had our small little pool. That thing was so hard to take care of.
OK, this is so cool! Such a smart idea and will make pool owners lives so much easier!
I wish I had a pool to need this! And there really is an app for everything. 🙂
This is great- we don’t have a pool anymore but this makes it soooo much easier. maybe it’s time to get another one 🙂
