Swimming Pool Automation Remodel

Intermatic Timers vs I-Aqualink Systems

In Pool Features by Platinum Pools

A swimming pool is the ultimate recreational space at home, and like everything, it requires maintenance to keep its automation in optimal conditions. An intermatic timer is a device to run your filter system at set times each day. It helps the filtering process automatically at set times throughout the day. A homeowner can also set various features like LED lights, spa jets, water features, and other amenities to work at specific times each day.

You can choose between an Intermatic Timer and an Automated Systems to run your pool’s pumps and features. Which one is the best for your swimming pool?
