ELIZABETH, NJ (September 27, 2013) Hayward® Pool Products has launched a new iPhone® and iPad® app for its AquaConnect® Remote Pool Management Platform, a popular accessory for Hayward’s ProLogic® and AquaPlus® automation platforms for the residential pool market. Apple® device users will now be able to more easily monitor, control and act upon more than 100 pool and spa conditions, parameters and settings remotely. The Android® App will be available in early 2014.

According to Hayward’s Senior Product Manager for Automation and Backyard Synergies, Greg Fournier, AquaConnect users have always had the ability to use their mobile devices to access their pools and spas. Now, the new mobile app streamlines the process and enhances the visual display on the users’ phones, allowing for easier reading of diagnostics, settings and adjustments. It also allows for quicker platform access from their iPhone or iPad.

The AquaConnect Remote Pool Management accessory app provides users of Hayward’s ProLogic and AquaPlus automation platforms with the ability to control their pool and spa functions, along with any other automated features in their backyards, from anywhere in the world.

From the new AquaConnect app you can easily manage pH and sanitization; turn lights on and off; activate water features; enable, disable or set the temperature for any heater; all while conserving energy. Originally designed for the service trade and operators who travel frequently or have pools in multiple locations, AquaConnect can help them identify potential problems remotely, so diagnostics and adjustments can be made from anywhere.

“Historically, remote controls had to be used within 500 feet of the automation system,” said Fournier. “Hayward’s AquaConnect provides pool owners greater flexibility, and allows the service trade the ability to monitor and manage all the pools on their routes, having direct contact with hundreds of their customers’ pools simultaneously. The new app quite simply makes the AquaConnect remote pool management platform easier to navigate and use.”

Where to find the AquaConnect Apps:
Access the iPhone & iPad App in the Apple Store.
Access the Android App (set to release early 2014) in the Android Market.
