The summer time is coming!
Many of us have already begun planning summer hot weekends.
It feels like sun has given everybody a kind of additional energy. Women begin visiting fitness centers, solaria and pools in order to get ready for hot season. You’ve probably noticed that the more things you have to do, the more you manage.
But I can have a bet that when in several months you lie in the sun you won’t be able to leave your couch because of total laziness. Just then Floating Pool Thermometer will be the right device you need.
It gives you an opportunity to check the water temperature without making any effort. It means that you won’t have to leave your cosy place in wait for water gets worm. Being absolutely wireless it transmits the information to your indoor display. The thermometer features 433MHz transmitter. That’s why you can get the information being away about 100 feet. Moreover, it has its own display with rather big digits, as its developers say. So you can also read figures at distance.
At the same time you shouldn’t worry about its safe keeping. The materials it’s made of are absolutely waterproof and sun-resistant. Actually, it’s rather useful device, I think.
The only thing you have to perform is to dip it into water and just enjoy your holiday.

We really liked this thermometer and it worked very well from May to November this year. After 6 months it shorted out – water leaked into it past some very impressive gasketry. Our’s is a salt clorinated pool and the salt water that leaked in corrored a critical part. We won’t be getting another of these.
We’ve gone through 2 of these and our best friend has been through 1, none has lasted more than 6 months. I find this to be a very poor design, all 3 units had the same problem of water leakage shorting out the electronics. We’re now looking for a more robust alternative since this thing isn’t cheap!
I loved this in the beginning too. How to fun was it to see the pool temp from the house? That didn’t last too long for us, shorted twice in less than a year. My husband fixed it once when it leaked into the housing, sealed it really well, or so we thought. $60 wasted. NuTemp has one we will try next with a probe that hangs in the water and you can read it from the house. Hope we have better luck.
I got one for Christmas a year and 3/4 ago. It leaked and quit a few daqys ago. During Fay. (Bad time to have to go outside to check the pool temp.)
I dried it out and cleaned it up inside, it works partly. (Displays temp, but doesn’t seem to transmit anymore.)
Also looking for a better design. May just have to make my own.
Imagine that….a product designed for use in water and it leaks! Listen to me people, I have tried them all and they all stink (worked for a while and then….blah, blah, blah) I found the best wireless temperature reading device on the planet! It’s called Clayton and it was made by my wife and I about 12 years ago. All we have to do it feed it and it does what ever we want. Save your money.
