Version 1.3

Version 1.3 has been released with the ability to export and restore your database. This is handy not only for making sure your data is backed up on occasion, but will be useful if you want to move your data to an upgraded version of Pool Advisor.

Pool Advisor Pro with multi pool support is coming soon!

Recent updates

By suggestion, I added settings to track your pool's Salt Level and made it an Inventory item. You will have to enable these in the settings if you want to use them.

I have also added the Check Chemicals reminder so you don't forget to keep up with that!

Next will be the ability to export and import the database, mostly for backing up your data, but also for moving to a different version in the future.

Speaking of which... I'm working on multi pool support that several of you have asked for. Watch for Pool Advisor Pro coming soon!

I'm in the process of adding a new reminder for checking the pool chemicals. Which brings up a question - Currently I don't have the reminders lighting up the LED or vibrating or anything. Is that something anyone would find useful?

Also, how are things working for you in Version 1.0?

Exploring Pool Advisor - Desired Chemical Ranges

This is where you can set the minimum and maximum thresholds for each of your tests. This information is currently used to warn you as you enter your test results if any of your results are outside of these specified ranges. In a future version, this information will be used to recommend a course of action if any of the results fall out of range.

Exploring Pool Advisor - Chemical Selection

Here you can select what products you use to maintain your pool. This determines what is tracked on the Inventory page, as well as what is shown when you are prompted to find out what chemicals you used when testing your pool.

Have something that you use that is not listed? Comment here or send me an email to and I will try to include it in an upcoming release.
