Software Features

Pool Watch® Software!

State of the Art in Pool/Spa Water Analysis Pool Watch Software has been developed from years of "real-world" experiences from chemical manufacturers and pool professionals. All the technological developments in water chemistry throughout the years has been incorporated into the Pool Watch Software. Pool Watch Software is highly customizable by the user to reflect the individual preferences of each pool & spa dealer. Each chemical line can be customized for test ranges, product names, dosages, maintenance schedules and chemical application. Each chemical line has daily sanitizer choices that include: Slow dissolve tabs, pucks or sticks, di-chlor granular, calcium
hypochlorite, liquid chlorine, bromine, lithium, and salt chlorine generator.
 A full complement of other tests and visable water conditions can be entered manually from test results obtained from specific test kits. (Tests include: iron, copper,salt, TDS, nitrate, peroxide & phosphate. Water conditions: algae, clarity, scale, etc.) Specialty Chemical Lines such as Sustain®, Proteam®, Synergy®, Snap®, Baquacil®, Revacil®, Gentle Swim®, Clear Comfort®, Soft Swim®, Pristine Blue ®, E-Z® Pool & Spa, Nature2®, Frog®, other mineral systems, and more, are also customizable for product name, ranges, dosages, etc. 

A Customer Data Base is maintained with name, address, pool or spa,
chemical line, sanitizer, volume, wall & filter type and all past tests
performed. Mailing labels, previous test & a complete test history can be
printed.

Customer Data Base Conversion: Home Port can convert most customer data files from other water test programs to The Wave program. This will eliminate manual re-entry of customer information. Please call for pricing.

Other Features

pH and Total Alkalinity: The relationship between pH and Total Alkalinity is a special one. Adjustment to one directly effects the other. These effects are incorporated in the Pool Watch software. Special considerations and calculations are used when determining the dose for either of these two tests. 

Cyanuric Acid
The effect of Cyanuric acid on the Total Alkalinity reading is also taken into consideration by the Pool Watch software. It has been determined by the NSPI and other authorities in the industry that the presence of Cyanuric acid in the water causes the Total Alkalinity test to be falsely high by approximately 30% of the Cyanuric level. The Pool Watch software considers this fact and automatically adjusts the Total Alkalinity level as needed. 

 

BreakPoint Chlorination

The Pool Watch software uses "BreakPoint" chlorination to determine
the correct amount of chlorine shock to break up combine chlorine.

Muriatic Acid or Sodium Bisulfate: The system default is sodium bisulfate (dry acid), for lowering pH and total alkalinity. Individual customer may be flagged to muriatic acid within their customer record. The system default may be changed from dry acid to muriatic acid within the system information screen. Customers may be flagged to dry acid (D) within their customer record.
