Hayward Industries, Inc. acquired ConnectedYard, Inc., the company behind the pHin Smart Water Care solution.
“The pHin Water Care solution is an innovative, breakthrough technology created to make the management of pool and spa water chemistry easier and more accurate using smart technology and design,” says Clark Hale, CEO of Hayward Industries. “We believe the pHin system will be a key component in our broader IoT strategy for total pool/spa automation. The technology is highly complementary to our leading sanitization technologies and OmniLogic control platform.”
Justin Miller and Mark Janes, cofounders of Connected Yard, share the excitement of this next chapter for their business. “As pool owners, we understood there had to be a better way to manage water chemistry,” says Miller and Janes. “As part of the Hayward team, we plan to accelerate growth and adoption of pHin as we expand into new markets around the world.”
The pHin Smart Monitor floats in the pool or spa water monitoring temperature and water chemistry 24/7. The pHin Mobile App notifies owners via smartphone what they should do and indicates the amount of chemicals to add to maintain healthy, balanced water. Simple to use, pre-packaged water soluble chemical pods are available through pHin’s chemical subscription program. Alternatively, owners can use chemicals purchased at their local store and pHin will tell exactly how much to add.
