Suitability for salt water spa pools

This question is from Wireless Digital Floating Pool and Spa Thermometer

July 17, 2015
Is this floating thermometer suitable for chlorinated salt water spa pools? Our pool normally runs at 40-41 degrees C (105 F) with a salt water chlorinator. Our last unit only lasted 3 months as I later found out through a Google search that the unit was actually unsuitable for salt water pools. I don't want to be caught twice. :) John

Answer: 
Mine did that too - condensation in LCD, found it was not the top plastic LCD cover that leaked, it was water getting in past the rubber seal in the base screw connection causing the condensation in the LCD from water inside the unit. Got some plumber's silicon faucet grease, coated the rubber seal liberally, and no more leaking. Now I use the silicon grease on my chlorine feeder and pump strainer basket Read More

Keeps the seals in place, and from drying out, and makes a nice tight but easy to unscrew waterproof connection. Read Less

Answer: 
Honestly - it's not suitable for any pool.
In my experience, it leaks horribly around the LCD window and will likely fail within a month or two of having been outside. I've purchased two of them and experienced the same problem with both. There is *no* water seal between the LCD and the clear window. Rain and pool water splash will combine to fill the unit with moisture over time.

Customer Reviews

Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 165 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DON'T BUY JUNK !!! Usually I do some research but I seen this at Home Depot and decided that buy thought it was a great idea. When I got home I read the reviews but gave it a try anyway. At first it worked great. Three days later it stopped working I took it out of the pool and water was in battery compartment. I took it back. Will wait until they improve it to try again. July 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Fix the leaking problem and they have a winner I buy one of these every spring for our pool (last 4 years). The battery compartment inevitably leaks and subsequent water damage destroys the sensor. This year the first one I bought this year leaked straight away; even after trying to seal with silicone it was still dead within two weeks. As long as you know you're probably going to have to replace every year it works well. Never had a problem with range and accuracy seems ok. The good news is that we keep the remote display units every year after we trash the sensor. Now we have multiple sensors around the house and patio that we sync with the new unit every year. May 31, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Third time the charm? This is my third purchase of this item. I know, but I really like the idea and so want this to work; but alas, here I am giving it 1 star. It works great for about 3 weeks then the sending unit fails and the receiving unit displays the last temp received with no indication anything is wrong...other than the ever constant temperature of the water. The sending unit is still completely sealed with no damage every time. For what ever reason it just is a poorly made product in my many experiences. Save your money and time and just walk out to the pool to check the teperature. June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk trans ducer leaked and was shot. Lasted about 1 month. July 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great thermometer I read past reviews where others have said the battery compartment will get corroded from water getting in. Before I put it in the pool I put some silicon lubricant on the o-ring and also put some silicon tape on the threads. I have had this in the pool for about three weeks and no leaks. The temperature reading is accurate (matches other thermometer in the pool) and the wireless receiver works great. I can check the temperature from inside my house without ever going out to the pool. Great product. June 29, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Pleas don't waste your time on acurite I have exchanged this unit 4 times they last between two days to three months. The customer service at acurite suggested that i return thefaulty unit to home depot again. I will do that but will not get a different acurite producet. July 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Inaccurate The unit is well-built and looks nice, but it does not register the correct temperature. Manufacturer's warranty information is unavailable, and attempts to contact them have failed. The real temperature was confirmed with manual thermometers. Acurite shows 99 when the tub is actually 104. Hoped this unit would be better than those cheap units from China that only last a month or two. This one is warrantied for a year but what good is that when the manufacturer won't respond? Guess I will have the wrong temperature for a year. I notice that Acurite thermometers in general are inaccurate. My wireless Indoor/outdoor thermometer is typically 5 degrees wrong. October 28, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Works Great..... Sorta This item is a wonderful idea. It was easy to get set up and even easier to use. However..... If for some reason the thermometer goes under water, even for a short time, the electronics screw up and mine shows 158DegF or "HH". This requires a drying out period and the chances are good that some of the LCD segments are now damaged and will no longer show some segments. June 28, 2016
