Frequently Asked Questions
How does Plainck work?
Plainck replaces an existing cover plate with a smart device. It does not float or add complication to your pool. Plainck is built with leading edge technology and sensors which monitor your pool chemistry. Due to the skimmer being in a fixed position, it also allows Plainck to measure your pool water level and detect if your pump is running, water is low or if your skimmer basket needs to be, or has been cleaned.
What chemicals does Plainck measure?
Plainck measures sanitizer and pH levels in your water. Sanitizer is measured through an ORP sensor, which correlates to safe levels of Chlorine.
The Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP) recommends an ORP level of 650 or higher. Therefore, as your ORP level changes with water contamination, Plainck will monitor and recommend for sanitizer (chlorine) to be added, or modifications to pH, if necessary. It will work with salt water pools.
Will it fit my skimmer?
Plainck is designed to fit over 90% of pools with the three (3) adaptor collars provided with the device. Square skimmer covers are not configured for Plainck at this time, but may be offered in the future.
The water level sensor range is approximately 2.75” to 7.75” depth from top of deck. The pH, ORP and temperature sensors are 7.75” depth from top of pool deck. If you have questions regarding the adaptability of your skimmer with Plainck, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
