Even in Florida, your pool can get a little too cool for comfort in chilly months or in the evenings. In order to enjoy swimming year round, most pool owners equip their pool with a heater.

However, electric heaters require a lot of energy to keep your pool warm and inviting when it’s chilly outside.

With today’s energy costs, this is the best time to consider investing in a heat pump. UltraTemp® heat pumps use only a fraction of energy to create the same amount of heat that gas, oil, or electric heaters generate.

With this pump, only $0.20 worth of electricity can produce $1.00 worth of heat that would be generated by other methods.

So, aside from saving money and being environmentally friendly, how does this product make your life easier? It’s automated!

UltraTemp® has a handy AutoSet feature that comes standard. This monitors your pool’s water temperature and turns the pump on and off as needed.

This feature overrides the time clock to maintain the desired temperature. So, it’s the “ultimate” in hands-free control to keep you swimming in your pool comfortably, year-round.

How would you like to control almost all of your swimming pool’s features from one central command post?

While many companies tout their automated pool systems as being the absolute best, I’ve had a lot of experience with Pentair’s EasyTouch® control systems…and I can honestly say that they’re fantastic for swimming pool enthusiasts while not being ultra complicated.

It’s incredibly annoying when you’ve got your grand kids in your pool and you’re trying to turn on the deck jets. But the automated pool system you’re working with is so darn complicated that you can’t figure out how to turn them on.

Meanwhile your grand kids are ultra disappointed and you’re aggravated because you spent good money on the deck jets and automation system.

Well there is hope. Check this out. ↓

The operation of your pool and spa equipment can become blissfully automatic when you have the EasyTouch® Control System at your service. It was launched in early 2000, and has eliminated the inconvenience of tasks such as:

  • Repeated trips to the equipment pad
  • Memorizing operating sequences
  • Opening and closing valves
  • Resetting time clocks and thermostats

Basically, EasyTouch® allows you to put all of your pool and spa operations on Cruise Control. These systems offer simple operating, with simple push-button commands, and clear, intuitive directions and displays.

You can select from systems that control either 4 or 8 accessory functions.
