This is so cool. But then, as my husband would say, “it has a remote, so I love it,” lol. It is extra cool with the remote, I have to admit. There is always someone who wants to the temperature of the water. And being the digital age, this fits the bill. I am so glad that I was afforded the opportunity to review LingsFire’s Professional Wireless Digital Swimming Pool SPA Floating Thermometer Transmitter in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. This set comes well wrapped, with both the remote, instructions and the thermometer.
You will need to have 4 AAA batteries on hand to get this set rolling. No tools are needed either. This is probably one of the easiest things to set up. I didn’t even have to ask my husband, lol. The battery compartment on the remote is on the back, just pop it open and install two AAA batteries. You will hear a beep. Then unscrew the cap from the thermometer, and carefully semi pull out the battery compartment. It is attached by wires, so do not over pull. All you have to do is put in the other 2 AAA batteries, replace the battery compartment and screw the cap back on. It will pick up a temperature rating right away, and it should match the remote. Now, there are 4 buttons on the back of the remote; Mode, C/F, Set, and Max/Min. I had not switched it to F yet for the photos. I prefer reading mine in F. Fortunately the instruction book is fairly easy to read. You can set the calendar date, alarm with snooze, water temp. range, indoor temp. range, 433mhz wireless receives 2 channel’s water temp., and a Max/Min record of indoor and water temps. Just follow the directions, and it will take you through setting everything. I started with what I thought would be easiest, and I set the time first. Everything went pretty smoothly. I would pass my desired number and had to go back around. But that is quite common with setting new timers, remotes, and the like. It is for me anyhow, lol. This is actually a very smooth running, and accurate thermometer. They sync up really well, and immediately too. My youngest loves it, and I love having it in hand. If you have a hard time bending over to check the temp. it won’t be an issue anymore with this. Also, you won’t have to worry about your kids bending over the side of the pool to read the temperature. You can use this for any pool or spa, and even the bath for the little ones. So many people want to take the temp of the bath water to make sure it’s not too hot. And with all the babies getting burned in the bathtub, it’s a good idea. My son was having a blast with this. It’s a new added toy for him, lol. This is definitely an added positive in our household. I am extremely comfortable in recommending it.
