  • Analog Thermometers: These traditional thermometers use a bimetallic coil or a glass tube filled with a liquid, typically alcohol or mercury, to measure temperature. The liquid expands as it heats up, causing the coil or glass tube to move and indicate the temperature on a graduated scale. Analog pool thermometers are budget-friendly and come in various designs, such as floating, hanging, and sinking models.

  • Digital Thermometers: These thermometers use electronic sensors to measure temperature and display the results on an LCD screen. Some digital models, like the Ambient Weather WS-25, come with a wireless remote display, allowing you to monitor the pool temperature from the comfort of your home. Digital thermometers are generally more accurate and easier to read than their analog counterparts.

These devices, like the Inkbird IBS-P01R, enable you to monitor your pool's temperature remotely and receive alerts when the water temperature falls outside your preset range. Smart thermometers are perfect for tech-savvy pool owners who want extra control and convenience.
