In-Ground Pool alarm
The Poolguard PGRM-2 In-Ground Pool Alarm is a sturdy pool alarm. It will alert you if someone or something falls in the pool.
The alarm sits on the deck of the pool. It has a sensor that detects any disturbance in the water.
Fewer False Alarms
The alarm is designed not to pick up things like sticks or other small items disturbing the water. Strong winds and heavy rain should also not set off the alarm.
There will always be some false alarms with even the best pool alarms. It’s better to have the occasional false alarm that it would be to have an alarm that never goes off. Customer reviews of this alarm, though, suggest that false alarms with this device are quite rare.
The alarm must be secured to the pool deck with a stabilizing pin. This is not a big job, but you will need a masonry drill.
Once installed, the alarm sits on the side of the pool with the sensing throat in the water.
If anyone tries to remove the alarm from the pool, the alarm will sound.
To disarm the alarm, you must hold the magnetic sleep key to the alarm while you remove it from the water. When you replace the alarm in the water, it will re-arm itself.
In-house Alarm Unit
If the alarm is triggered a loud, 85dB alarm will sound poolside and in the house.
The in-house receiver unit has a range of up to 200 feet. It comes with a 12-volt power supply. The poolside unit is battery powered. It needs a 9-volt battery, which is not included with the product.
