Help with designing and testing a Pool Monitoring system Answered

Hi,

I don't know if this is the right place to ask this so apologies to all in advance if it is not.

I have had a pool for some time and I got quite sick of monitoring it. I searched for any "off the shelf" equipment to help me with this but there are none available.

I just wanted to make pool monitoring easy, or at least easier than it is right now.

I have made a prototype which continuously monitors pool & SPA water including Chlorine, alkalinity, temperature, and can deliver that to my website in a graphical format. It gives me a history of the pool environment and helps me keep the pool in top condition so when the kids or friends and relatives drop by I know instantly what the pool condition is and if it is safe for everyone to go in. It has wireless capability and I have manage to get the battery life to around 20 days without a recharge and the new solar version (still being built) will go almost indefinably.

Just wondering if anyone else thinks this is a good idea.

That sounds like a great idea!

A raspberrypi might be easier for the west side of things.
