Perfect for pools, hot tubs, and lakes, the AcuRite Wireless Digital Pool Thermometer allows you to monitor water temperature from a digital display inside your house (up to 100 ft. away). The bold, easy to read LCD screen displays the current water temperature, high / low information and a history graph with the last 3 days of temperature recordings. Track temperature changes from 1 hour to 3 days ago. A Freeze Warning alerts you when the water temperature drops below 40 degrees. The floating outdoor sensor features water temperature information, durable weatherproof & waterproof construction, powerful wireless technology and low battery indicator light.

Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 136 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 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
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nice unit but not accurate Well-constructed and easy to deploy, but my experience is that the temperature is as much as 5 degrees low (and getting worse). Fortunately the manufacturer responded to my complaint saying that it was an import and they had no control over the quality or accuracy and would refund my money. It's a shame but that is a satisfactory outcome. I just have to remember that 98 on the thermometer is actually 104 in the tub. In any event, it is a far cry above those cheap Chinese imports that only work for a couple of months then stop and have no warranty on them. October 31, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Good concept, poor reliability I have had mine for about a year and must admit that I am a bit disappointed. The unit looks good and the concept is what I was looking for but the quality is poor. 1. It does not have good range so the display inside is quite frequently wrong. The sending unit is less than 25 feet away and we still need to go check it to know what the water temp. 2. The max/min doesn't seem to work. Today it showed 87 and 114 and I know that neither was correct. 3. After about 10 months the sending unit just totally failed. I tried new batteries and still nothing. The nice people at Home Depot helped me out with a replacement even though I had no receipt. April 25, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nice looking unit and works well until it fills with water after one week of floating in pool. Fills up with water and stops working after a week of floating in the pool. I have owned two of these. I bought the second one thinking the first might have been a lemon. Second one did the same thing. You can keep it working by taking it apart and draining the water out of it and using a blow dryer to dry it but you'll have to do it once a week. Finally took it out of the pool and am using it for an outside thermometer. The signal works great between the sender and receiver but not designed well enough to keep water out. To bad because it was nice knowing what the temperature of the pool was without going outside. July 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Here is a tip!!!! Ok, product is working for two seasons now and working great. the tip is if you buy a bridge from acurite website you can check your pool temperature from your smart phone!!!! just get the bridge and bridge will connect to the sensor and download the my backyard app from accurate....

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by disappointing packaging and remote indicator not working The item works as advertised, except that the contents of the package were soaked and the directrions unreadable. As well, the remote indicator did not work, and I had to use the remote indicator from the previous item I had. I only got half of what I paid for. November 3, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by broke after a few months At the surface everything about this product is great, but after just one summer of use, the receiver (the part that stays in the pool) stopped working - it got water logged and the inside, where the batteries are stored, got completely rusted. The good news is that I contacted the manufacturer directly and they offered me a full refund, which I appreciated. The color and surface also didn't hold up well in the Arizona sun and heat, but that's typical of most outdoor products after an Arizona summer. October 7, 2015
