GAME has updated the ePOOL Water Chemistry Monitoring System. Like the original ePOOL, it uses a floating sensor to continuously analyze the water’s chemical composition and then wirelessly relays sanitizer level, pH and water temperature. The improved version sends that information directly to any PC or Macintosh computer. The next generation ePOOL is even more convenient, the company says, because it can send email or text messages, such as “Your pool’s pH is high. Add 12 oz. of muriatic acid.” 359-5350

Also, the iBall Velocity’s silicone valve design is safe for little fingers.
