ELIZABETH, NJ (March 4, 2013) - Hayward® Commercial Pool Products announces the launch of a new mobile app for PoolComm® -- its NSF Certified CAT Controllers® wireless web-based control system for the commercial pool market. The new app affords commercial pool servicers, operators, and managers greater convenience and flexibility when monitoring water quality at their various facilities.
The PoolComm app, designed for iPhone® and/or Android™ provides users with a more accessible, user friendly way to view and dynamically control water quality, create compliance charts, audit tracking and view alarms fed from either their CAT 4000® or CAT 5000® controllers. This new app will allow pool operators to create pool and pump room survey reports and immediately send the information to their email, all within the app.
In conjunction with the release of the PoolComm app, Hayward is also introducing Wi-Fi® communication capabilities for their CAT 4000 and CAT 5000 models. This breakthrough opens up PoolComm to an even greater number of users without monthly or annual usage fees. Existing CAT 4000 and CAT 5000 controller installations can be field upgraded via a Wi-Fi retrofit kit.
According to General Manager of Hayward Commercial Pool Products Patrick Sweeney, “Since its launch in 2004, PoolComm has revolutionized the way pools are managed, enabling remote web-based monitoring and control of multiple bodies of water anywhere at any time. Wi-Fi will further accelerate the adoption of this technology making automated pool management even more affordable.” He noted, “For controllers already installed in the field without active communications, the Wi-Fi field upgrade kit is a quick and easy way to access the world of remote communications, bringing control literally to your fingertips.”
The app is now available for free download at the Apple® App Store for the iPhone® and the Google Play™ Store for the Android™. If you would like to see how the app works, a video can be watched by going to the Hayward Pool Professional YouTube page at http://bit.ly/PoolCommVideo
