    Built-in is better

    Stuck In The Middle With You

    One of the limitations in the pool automation industry for as long as anyone can remember has been the one pump to one active feature rule.  While not a hard rule, this basically means that pool automation systems are incapable of allowing a single pump to activate more than one water feature at a time.  Of course you can do this manually by walking over to the pool pad and moving a valve manually, but it hasn’t been done with any automation system until now. The Attendant is proud to announce that our patented Valve in the Middle technology is now available!  This groundbreaking technology allows you to activate two or more…

    Not all pool owners are alike. Some are technical and understand the inner workings of the pumps, actuators, heaters and blowers. They know what to turn on in tandem and what actions lead to negative results. Then there are others who just want it to simply work. One thing we believe all pool owners can agree on is that it’s time for their pools to get smarter. By smarter, I don’t mean having the ability to turn a waterfall on from my phone type of smart that competitors are offering today. The type of smart I expect is making decisions for me in order to protect my investment and reduce my energy…

    Go Green – It’s a catchy color!

    While it’s not usually something homeowners think too hard about when planning a pool or spa addition to their backyard, normal operations of a pool can add unexpected energy costs…while having a negative effect on the environment.  If you’re not careful about the equipment you install, this impact can be significant.  That’s not to say there hasn’t been a number of improvements made in pool pad technology over recent years to increase the efficiency of those units; it’s that these devices all work independently of one another, oddly enough even when sourced from the same vendor. How The Attendant Can Help The Attendant is a vendor agnostic automation system that has been…
