These days, automation is more affordable, which is why it has grown in popularity. With a few taps on your smart device, it is possible to turn on your pool’s cleaner while at work, adjust water temperature, and control waterfalls, jets, lights, pumps, and more. Spa owners can turn on the hot tub from the comfort of their home—no dashing out in the snow is necessary. They can also set lighting and heat from say, the road or office, so a warm hot tub awaits them after a long day.
Automatic cleaners are a great accessory to save time and make pool maintenance easier. With robotic cleaners, you can program the vacuum to clean the pool in a few hours. These robotic cleaners work separately from your pool system and operate on a low-voltage transformer plugged into a regular outlet.
Extending home décor beyond the walls of the interior can add value to the home and offer more room to relax and entertain. Planning the space to include comfortable seating, a dining area, barbecue or outdoor kitchen, fire feature, privacy, shade, and water feature, such as a pool, swim spa, or hot tub, can maximize year-round enjoyment.
