With the latest pool and spa controllers from Pi you can often achieve a 3 month pay back, both reducing your costs and improving the bathing experience of your pool users. For many years cheap sensors and controllers have prevailed in the pool industry leading to poor quality bathing water and a poor quality bathing experience.
Often operators don’t know how poor their controllers are, thinking that the poor performance is normal. Pi use the same sensors for controlling chlorine in swimming pools as we use for controlling chlorine in drinking water. Based on their superior sensors and controllers, Pi can:
- Save money by controlling pool recirculating pumps
- Eliminate bacteriological growths in pools and spas
- Optimize the chemical usage
- Eliminate ‘red eye’ and chlorine smells
The AquaSense is a sophisticated device capable of controlling many aspects of the pool including the chlorine levels, the pH and if a variable speed device is fitted, the speed of the recirculating pumps.
Most pool recirculating pumps are over specified for the duty required and as such there is scope to turn them down and save considerable amounts of money on the electricity usage. Whenever you save electricity you are reducing the CO2 emissions and the carbon footprint of your pool and spa, and for many organizations reducing CO2 emissions is a significant factor in choosing which equipment to purchase.
In order to turn down the pool recirculating pump the pump motor must be fitted with an inverter. The question then arises – on what basis do we turn the motor down? Each pool has a minimum turnover set by the manufacturer or consultant at the time of installation. The CRIUS® AquaSense allows the user to turn down the recirculating pump during periods of non pool use (overnight) to the minimum level. Whilst the pool is being used the recirculating pump motor speed is set based on chlorine demand (which is proportional to bathing load). This ability to control the recirculating pump based on chlorine demand means that pool operators can save significant sums of money on electricity during the day when electricity costs the most. This can lead to a 3 month pay back on some pools. Please contact your local sales team for references.
