According to the manufacturer, the Pool Guard alarm can be used in pools with a salt chlorine system.

I have a round above the ground pool. There is no top rail, it has PVC pipe. Will the Pool Guard alarm attach to that?

A     Answered on 8/28/2012 by Patrick P.

The Pool Guard Above Ground Pool Alarm will not attach to a pvc pipe.  You may want to consider the Safety Turtle Alarm for your pool type.

Could you tell me how the poolguard would work with the pool pump running 5 hours each day? Would the alarm trigger?

A     Answered on 6/7/2006 by Patrick P.

The pump should have no effect on the alarm. Just make sure it is on when you set it up.

 (1 out of 5 stars)  Pool alarm

from Gatineau, QC ()

Pros: easy to install

Cons: useless if you do not put it in the pool because it you are afraid it will go off in the middle of the night.

I bought this pool alarm as it was the only one I could find for above ground pools. I am very disappointed with it. First, the alarm has no off switch and will sound unless you hold the button until it beeps. The, you only have 5 seconds to put it in the pool or else it will go off. When it goes off, you need to hold the button for at least 8 seconds while its waking up everyone in your house as well as your neighbours before it turns off. If you get it, and know of a storm coming with brisk winds, remove it from the pool otherwise you will need to go out in the rain(if it's raining) to shut it off.
