ConnectedYard, a Hayward Industries, Inc. company and maker of the pHin Smart Water Care solution, announced a new version of pHin designed to simplify the care and maintenance of residential hot tubs. ConnectedYard is partnering with Nordic Hot Tubs as the first manufacturer to create pHin ready hot tubs that include the new inline installation of the pHin solution in all of its 2019 North American hot tub models.
Hot tub manufacturers create pHin ready hot tubs by adding a pHin adaptor into the hot tub plumbing, effectively smart-enabling its hot tubs with pHin’s water monitoring technology. With the pHin Partner Portal, hot tub manufacturers and dealers can receive real-time data on their customers’ hot tubs (with customer permission), including current water health, historical pH, ORP, temperature levels and chemical usage — similar to the data available to hot tub owners via the pHin mobile app. This remote monitoring capability provides peace of mind and reduces maintenance costs for both hot tub owners and dealers, while providing manufacturers and dealers with valuable data and insights allowing them to better serve customers’ needs.
“The partnership with ConnectedYard will provide Nordic Hot Tub dealers with a competitive advantage, while offering their customers a better experience by reducing the burden of water care,” says Pete Westfall, vice president of sales for Nordic.
“ConnectedYard and Nordic have a shared vision to make owning a hot tub simple, low maintenance and carefree,” says Justin Miller, ConnectedYard CEO. “A pHin Ready hot tub allows the dealer to provide their customers with an enhanced Nordic experience and combined with innovative features like the Shopping List and Partner Portal, pHin makes it easy for dealers to support their customers’ service and chemical needs.”
