  • Disappointed with AccuRite Pool Thermometer
  • September 11, 2012

Purchased this item new and for about 6 weeks it worked flawlessly. I was very careful to be sure that the floating unit was never disturbed or opened. I am not sure if rain, or leakage from the pool occurred, but the unit suddenly stopped working. When I brought it in to inspect it, the interior of the unit that floats was very wet inside and smelled of burned electronics. It appears to be completely dead.

Cons Not Durable, leaks and doesnt last.

After reading all the reviews and the problems, I sealed the battery cover with silicone grease. Covered all areas that may allow moisture in with silicon sealant. Well the pool display fogged up inside the unit. So I opened it up and placed it in a dehydrator overnight. No help, stilled fogged up. Well I could live with that. In indoor display is what I needed to monitor my hot tub during freezing weather. This worked OK for about a month. Then I noticed the temperature starting reading 5-6 degs below the Spa setting. Not good. SO not wanting to throw it all out, I opened the pool unit, took all the electronic and battery parts out. Had a Acu-Rite outside temp unit, installed it in the housing and putt it back in the spa. With it’s inside display in worked.

Only purchase this if you consider it disposable, and plan to buy a new one every 6-12 months.

This ACURITE seems to work better than two other brands that I had previously. Both of the earlier brand pool thermometers began leaking and destroyed the internal circuitry after 6 months or so. This unit displays min, max, and the current temperatures but the max seems to always display a temperature of 126 degrees or higher, wrong! However the current and min temps seem to be accurate. The max is not really much of a concern to me but the max should work as advertised. I may consider returning it for another unit as I cannot find a better one on the market!

Pros best i can find on the market Cons has a minor operational issue

b ought at Home Depot. Worked for about 6 months, then stopped working. When I took the bottom off there was water inside the electronics housing. The bottom screws on with a gasket, I had followed the instructions and hand tightened it but that apparently wasn't enough. The base station still shows a temperature reading even though the float is no longer in the pool and has had the batteries out of it for days. Cheaply made and not waterproof enough for a swimming pool.

After a month water got inside and started to give unacurate readings, kaput! Do not recommend.

  • Nice unit but not accurate
  • October 31, 2015

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.

Worked fine and for a couple months but eventually the outdoor unit fries in the sun and leaks water. Ended up throwing it away. Only worked right for about 4-5 months

It is supposed to transmit to the receiver at 100 feet. My receiver is about 50 feet away and there are no signal bars and no reading. So, I have to go out to the pool to see the temperature and that defeats the whole purpose.
