Next the batteries need to be inserted on the other end of the device.
A three-part waterproof screw cap keeps the battery compartment dry.
You have to enter some basic information about your pool set up, including its volume; if you have forgotten your high school geometry lessons, there are helpful instructions to help you get the right answers.
You’ll also need to specify what type of pool you have, its water chemistry, what type sanitizer, pH increaser and pH reducer you use, and whether you use metric or English measurement units.
Now you have to check your signal strength and make sure everything is working properly.
Assuming that it is (and ours obviously was), the floating sensor gets dropped into the pool.
And the four hour stabilization process begins.
Bear in mind that the actual sensor was stored with a cotton ball soaked in Potassium Chloride, so don’t let that extra low initial pH reading freak you out.
After the stabilization process completes, you’ll be able to see if and where your pool needs attention.
Ooops. It looks like we need to throw a couple more chlorine tabs in the strainer. But how cool is it to be able to see your pool’s temperature, pH, and chlorine levels without having to go outside and manually measure them? With this wifi pool thermometer, you can.
