What is a Smart Pool
Introducing Smart Pool – The Self-Cleaning Pool
Most people who buy a pool start off with dreams of relaxing, enjoying time with family and friends. What they don’t picture is the hard work which is typically needed to look after that pool – all the manual cleaning, the heavy lifting of automatic cleaners, the endless task to keep your water balanced, healthy and safe to swim in.
The Vantage in-floor cleaning system is a unique water circulation system that transforms your traditional fibreglass pool to a smart pool. It has been designed to reduce chemical usage, eliminate cold spots and keep your pool clean of debris without the need for regular hand vacuuming or any other cleaning equipment. Watch our videos to find out how owning a Compass Pool with the Vantage system can set you free to enjoy your pool as you should!
Smart Pools vs. Traditional Pools
The problem with the traditional ‘eyeball and skimmer’ system is that it pushes water across the top of your pool into a skimmer. This skimmer then feeds that water through a filter and into a pump which pushes it back into your pool through eyeball return jets. Sure it circulates the volume of a standard pool in about 8 hours, but does it really circulate the whole pool, or just the top third over and over again? The Vantage operating system is a revolutionary new way to operate your pool. In-floor nozzles work to push water around your pool in a circular fashion which ensures that all water is constantly moving. Water at the top of the pool is circulated to the bottom and the benefits of this include: warmer water from the top being spread throughout the pool, and an even spread of bacteria-killing chemicals everywhere in the pool.
Traditional pool design uses old-fashioned methods of returning filtered water back to the pool through eyeball returns near the surface. This does not put the heated and chemically treated water on the bottom of the pool where it is needed. Tests show that conventionally heated pools consume up to 50% more chemicals and 40% more energy than heated pools with in-floor systems.
