Your pool and LCD, LED screens
For homeowners, a swimming pool is the ultimate status symbol. Private pools can be equipped with all manner of technological marvels, including moving floors, counter-current units and adaptive LED lighting.
However, a pool can also benefit from an LED or LCD display to communicate a variety of information about the status of the pool. This is doubly true for public pools, which can use a screen to inform members of the public about a pool’s depth, temperature, and more. In this post, we take a look at how best to use a digital display with your pool - whether it’s for hundreds of people or just for you.
Public pools are used for all manner of different activities, from children’s swimming lessons to competition between teams or schools. Many modern pools can be altered depending on the intended usage; a pool being used for a diving competition can have its floor lowered. A pool being used for pre-school swimming lessons or elderly people’s aerobics might need to be a little warmer for optimum comfort.
The ideal situation is one which enables you to to monitor the depth and temperature of the pool without someone having to manually check these variables. That’s where a dynamic LED or LCD display comes in, allowing the pool’s control systems to convey this information to pool users.
Any person using your pool will be able to check out information about the pool before dipping a toe in. Pool instructors will know ahead of time whether a pool is the appropriate depth for their classes, and can inform an attendant if it needs changing. Pool technicians will have an accurate and visible method to determine the pool’s temperature - allowing users to monitor and control it with confidence.
Health and Safety
Swimming pools are often the scene of accidents - both big and small. As a result, health and safety is paramount, particularly the use of signage to inform the public about the pool rules. The use of dynamic LED and LCD displays to tell people not to dive in the pool (in cases where the pool’s floor has been raised, for instance) or not to run around the edge of the pool can be instrumental in reducing the number of accidents. Used in reception, LED and LCD displays can also be used to inform the public that the pool is closed for cleaning, or is otherwise unavailable at that time.
LED and LCD displays can also be very useful for personal pools, particularly if the owner is not necessarily an expert on the inner workings of their pool. They can use a display to tell them if they’ve got the temperature balance right and whether their moving floor is functioning as intended. This is also helpful for when you have guests or hold parties in their pool, as it will help visitors feel more comfortable allowing their children to play, knowing the depth is never deep enough to be dangerous.
If you run a public pool (or are the proud owner of a private one), consider the installation of a LED or LCD display. Take a look around our site or get in touch to discuss your needs with a member of our friendly team.
