The Hayward CAT 6000 is the industry's first water chemistry controller with solid-state sensing and an intuitive touchscreen.

Additionally, the full-color touchscreen menu allows users to quickly configure the display, view sensor measurements and understand alarm explanations at a glance. And because CAT 6000 includes customizable control and a variety of standard inputs/outputs (including a pump interlock), both installation and operation are reliably quick and simple.
