Do you love gadgets and pools? If so then we have a treat for you. Today, we take a look at some of the coolest pool gadgets that are perfect for any technophile pool owner out there.

The 5 Coolest Pool Gadgets for Backyard Technophiles

We have become accustomed to working on and using our pools in a very low tech way. Most of us rely on old fashioned systems for caring for our pools and we don’t even bother to look around at some of the new gadgets that can not only make our pool lives easier, but a little more fun, too. Today, we have compiled a list of some of our very favorite tech gadgets out there designed specifically for pools.

1. pHin Smart Pool Monitoring System


The pHin Smart Pool Monitoring Systems makes the top of this list, and for good reason. We all know how tough it can be to properly maintain your water quality. For many of us trying to figure out what chemicals to add and how much to add remains a mystery. That’s where the pHin system comes in. It will monitor your pool for you and tell you when to put it what chemical and even when you need to order more.

The best part about this system is it connects via Wi-Fi so you can monitor your pool from virtually anywhere. Sit inside your cool home on those hot summer days and check the condition of your water or while you are at work fire up the smartphone app and see how the water looks. This system is hands down one of the best systems for not just monitoring your water, but also caring for it so you can spend your time enjoying your pool instead of playing an amateur chemist.

Who wants to break their backs vacuuming the sides and the bottom of their pools? Anyone? I didn’t think so. Why not have a robot do it for you. Nothing gets a gadget junky going more than the mention of the word, robot. The Dolphin Nautilus will take care of that back breaking work for you by traveling around your pool cleaning those nasty sides and bottom. So throw out that hand vac and sit back and relax and let technology do the work for you.

Enough with the cleaning gadgets, what about gadgets that are actually fun? Do you enjoy music while you swim? Most of us do.

At night, this can become even more difficult as you hunt for some of the buttons on your devices. With this waterproof Bluetooth speaker, you can add your sound system right into your pool so it is easy to access whenever you want to change songs. On top of that, it includes lighting to really give your pool a unique look when the sun starts to set in the evening.

Wearable cameras are all the rage today, but one area that has been slower to develop was underwater camera technology.

This mask is great for both your pool and even some light diving so you can take with you when you head to the beach as well.
