The Latest in Pool Technology

We live in an ever advancing world. Everything is now conveniently available at our fingertips. The pool industry and our friends at AstralPool are certainly keeping up with the trends.

Being a pool owner is no longer a high maintenance job. We can now check our pool chemistry on our phones in real time and if the pool needs attention, you will get a notification on your screen drawing your attention to the issue immediately

You can now also use your phone to change the colour of your pool lights to create any atmosphere or change the colour transition modes (fade, smooth and disco) and take your pool parties to the next level.

What’s better is, these tools are not just in research stage, they are on the market and available at Countrywide Pools, 333 Fitzgerald St, Northam.
