Frequently Asked Questions ("FAQ")
Q1: Does the SmartPOOL include a wired or wireless remote control? I've seen some pics that show it included.
A1: No. The remote was discontinued several years ago. Also, for several years it has not been available for purchase separately.
Q2: Will it corrode easily when used with salt chlorinator?
A2: According to the owner's manual and installation instructions (link below, page 8), proper water treatment chemical levels will not damage the SmartPOOL 18.
Q3: Can it be mounted in outside area where it will be hit with rain?
A3: The unit does not have an IPX weatherproof rating. If you wish to install it outside and exposed to rain, you should install inside an enclosure or under a cover, so that the unit does not get wet, and ensure that electrical building code is followed.

Buying and using a pool cover is strongly recommended
A pool loses heat from evaporative cooling. That's the cooling effect when water evaporates from the surface of the pool. It accounts for about 75% of a pool’s heat loss. And, a pool cover can reduce the heat lost from a pool by approximately 50%, and directly translates into a 50% reduction in your power consumption. That's a dramatic savings in your fuel bill.
In addition to lowering your energy bill, a pool cover will provide a valuable safety by preventing people from falling in accidentally, conserving chemicals, and reducing the load on filter systems by preventing debris from entering the pool.
