Suitability for salt water spa pools

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

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 lid rubber seals as well. 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.

Answer: 
Yes but it comes with the indoor monitor as a complete unit, not just a standalone thermometer.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 2.6 out of 5 by 147 reviewers.
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 Great transition season tool Loved seeing what temp was without going out and dipping a thermometer in the pool. The only issue I had was the outdoor units durability. It lasted about 6 months. If it wasn't for the this issue I would have given it 5 stars. Since I didn't register it for warranty purposes I just bought another one. Other than that knowing if we could use the pool at a glance when the seasons changed was great. My advice is use it in the spring and fall and put it away in the summer and winter when it is giving you information you cannot really use. By the way, I live in Florida so we use our pool at least 9 months of the year. March 22, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This is my 3rd replacement. Water kept getting into the transmitter within 3 months. Product was great when it worked, but within a few months, water will get into the transmitter and render the unit useless. I thought I received a defective unit at first, so I tried calling Acurite to get a replacement, only to be told they no longer manufacture this unit. So I went to Home Depot, and they were great, gave me a replacement without a receipt. 2nd unit failed. I did the same thing, took it back to HD and they again gave me a replacement. Without 3 months, 3rd unit failed. I'm getting sick of replacing it, even for free. I won't bother anymore. April 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Acurite Wireless Digital Pool Thermometer This product doesn't work! Save your money, research and buy another brand !! I've tried everything imaginable to get the two devices to talk to each other... Totally disappointed..Will be returning to Home Depot.. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wireless Pool Temp This is our second time purchasing this item. We love it! April 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This is the second one of these. This is the second one of these and the first lasted 4 years before it became unusable, March 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Product + Works with Bridge Does a great job of monitoring pool temperature. Although it has a dedicated monitor, it also shows up on my Acurite internet bridge that monitors my weather instruments. It is not advertised as doing this. March 8, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Adding my voice to the rest of the howls... I've bought two now. They're junk. Neither one lasted more than a month before it started to fail. I love the concept and the aesthetic design. The quality, however, it horrid. It's a device designed to float in a pool full of water, outdoors, in the weather and, yet, it's incapable of keeping the water out. It leaks like a sieve. Best as I can tell, the water is penetrating around the LCD display as there is no water seal between the display and the clear window (see attached photos), but I can't confirm that. Either way, it'll work great for a few weeks, then you'll start to notice a little condensation on the LCD glass. Then it'll start to report water temperatures over 100, under 50 (in Florida in July), and stop working. It's a shame, really. But, it's a complete and utter waste of your money unless you're handy with tools and willing to tear a unit apart to waterproof it before you put it in the pool. A horrible design job. The unit I used for the attached photos is less than two months old, bought brand new and the local Home Depot. I think I'll see if they'll exchange it and then take that apart and waterproof it and see how that goes. August 5, 2015
