Manufacturers Collaborate on Pool Cover Interface

Scott Webb Headshot

Pool Cover Specialists, a division of Latham Pool Products, and Hayward Pool Products, have just announced the release of the Hayward/PCS Pool Cover Interface. This new technology allows the integration of a Pool Cover Specialists automatic swimming pool cover into the Hayward OmniLogic and Hayward ProLogic  automation systems which can control all swimming pool functions, as well as other backyard features.

Bruce Grogg, General Manager of Pool Cover Specialists, a division of Latham Pool Products, said, “This new interface allows the pool cover to talk with the automation system and automatically coordinate between the two systems. With Hayward’s automation, you can turn on and off of water features, slides, spa jets and other features when the pool cover is opened or closed, and keep the water from running on top of the pool cover.”

“Having worked with Pool Cover Specialists for a couple years on this idea, we’re very excited about adding this new capability into our existing automation systems,” said Greg Fournier, Hayward’s Senior Product Manager for Controls and Backyard Synergies. “We have future enhancements planned that will allow pool owners even more functionality and control when they add an automatic swimming pool cover to our OmniLogic controls.”
