What if I have a leak in my pool and the water level changes? Will this cause false alarms? Where exactly is the sensor for detecting changes at the surface of the pool?
Hello, attach is the Helpful hits link and troubleshooting guide to this alarm. page 12 explains more indepth about Alarms
How does the Pool Guard alarm work?
The Pool Guard will sound when an object weighing 18 lbs or more enters the water causing its level to rise. The alarm has a sensor that stretches down below the water line and will sound whenever a change occurs at the surface level.
Can the PGRM2 be used on an above ground pool?
The PGRM2 Pool Guard alarm is used for inground pools. The PGRMAG is the correct model for above ground pools.
Will the pool alarm activate when the automatic pool cleaner is in use?
If the cleaner head or the cleaner hose hits the Pool Guard pool alarm it may cause it to false alarm. Solutions to this problem are to use your cleaner at night and your alarm during the day. Another option would be to find a place around the pool where the cleaner would not interfere with the alarm.
Will this work with any pool stone edging? I noticed the picture shows in attached to a perfect 90 degree angle.
Yes, this will work with any type of pool coping as well as a perfect 90 degree angle coping.
What if my pool is larger than 20X40(800 sq.ft.)?
One alarm is required for every 800 square feet. If you have a pool that is 25'X50' (1250 sq.ft.) you would require 2 alarms.
Is it possible to add an additional remote receiver?
It is possible to order an additional receiver. We would need the serial number from the alarm in order to proceed with the purchase. The cost of the receiver would be $50.
How is the system attached to the pool?
You drill a small hole in your deck with a 5/16" masonary drill bit, there is then a pin sticking out of the bottom of the alarm which sits in the hole. Here is a link to the owner's manual which explains this in greater detail http://www.inyopools.com/owners_manual/pool_guard_pgrm2.pdf
