You are welcome to add supplementary equipment to your pool but you have to talk to us about such equipment beforehand to ensure that it is compatible and correctly integrated into your newly automated system, and so that you can control it through the Pool App.

A list of typical, compatible equipment is given below.

Please remember that your Pooled Energy system is an automatic system controlled from a central computer and all changes to the system must be correctly installed and configured.   You must not make, nor allow any third person or supplier to make unauthorised changes, additions or reconfigurations, which can cause damage or performance problems to your pool or Pooled Energy equipment and services. 

Our aim is to ensure the optimal running of your pool and we need to be aware of any planned modifications. The best way to add third party equipment is to source it through us.  We are able to source a wide variety of third party equipment, at competitive prices, and install it for you. 

When you want to add some pool equipment, please call or email us with details of the equipment you intend to connect, and the date it will be installed if you are having it done by others, so that we can configure the Intelligent Pool Controller™ to work with the new equipment.

The following equipment is usually compatible but please check the specific equipment model number with us prior to purchase:

Solar Heater

Gas Heater

Heat Pump

Pressure Cleaner (Pool Sweep)

Built-in Floor Cleaner

Pool Cleaner Robot

Water Features

Pool lights (you can install these at any time.)

Most of the foregoing equipment is available via Pooled Energy, at competitive prices. We will also install and configure the system for you (at agreed prices).

The following equipment is usually NOT compatible for future addition.

Any form of water sanitiser other than a salt chlorinator. 

Any form of chemical dosing system. You do not need this.

Any form of pre-filter or other filter.  These are unlikely to help and will likely interfere with system operation and use more energy

Suction cleaners.  While these are usable, we recommend against them for the reasons discussed in the section on pool sweeps.

C bus or other remote controls.  You have the Pool App and do not need another means to control your pool.

All supplementary third-party devices have recommended operating modes.   For example, gas heaters and pressure cleaners require minimum water flows and the Pooled Energy system must provide these water flows at the times they are needed.   This is simple to do but the plumbing must allow it and the Intelligent Pool Controller software has to be configured for it.  Please contact us to do this.
