7 Helpful Swimming Pool Phone Apps

 As pool gadgets become high tech, they often provide the option to monitor everything from your pool pump to spa tub temperature through smartphone apps. While these are convenient, they require purchasing specific equipment which you may not want to do. We’ve researched the latest free swimming pool smartphone apps and compiled a list of free Android and iPhone apps you can use without having to purchase special equipment.

Below you will find the name of each app and a description as well as a link to download it. Not all apps work well on every platform. We understand how annoying it is to download an app that doesn’t work well so we’ve linked the best-rated platform for each one.

Check out these 7 helpful swimming pool phone apps

While these smartphone apps may help you with chemical balancing and exercise, there is no replacement for your observation skills when it comes to identifying possible pool leaks. Records of how often you add pool chemicals can help to alert you to a potential leak if you are having a hard time keeping your swimming pool balanced, but it’s also important to keep an eye out for signs of leaks when performing pool maintenance.
