pHin combines a bluetooth and WiFi enabled water monitor, a smartphone app and unique chemical pods to take the guesswork out of pool and hot tub care. Notifications are sent to the smartphone when water chemistry needs rebalancing, and pre-measured, color-coded, single-dose pods are shipped right to the owner's door. pHin also provides one-touch access to on-demand pool technicians.
Pool Service On Demand is a unique network of pre-qualified pool service providers offering pre-negotiated pricing. It connects professional technicians with pool and hot tub owners across America for their maintenance and repair needs. It also offers service techs a gateway into the smart pool industry with access to new revenue streams, broader market coverage, increased service margins and 24/7 customer insight.
