In order for a pool or spa to properly circulate, filter, and heat water, it is critical to maintain an ideal water level in skimmers, gutters, and surge tanks. Installing a precision automatic water level controller like the ELC-800r gives you the peace of mind of maintaining this ideal water level at all times, therefore allowing pool and spa systems to operate at peak efficiency. The ELC-800r is designed to keep water level within 1/8 of an inch from where the sensor is mounted. One of many benefits from such precision is allowing skimmers and gutters to take dirty water from the surface to be filtered and heated before the dirt can sink. In other words, it allows the critical equipment in your pool or spa to function as they are designed to.
Another important feature the ELC-800r offers is the additional option to sense a low water condition. A dual sensing unit can be installed with a relay in line of the pump power. This allows for the ELC-800r to shut the pump down when a low water condition occurs. Once the water reaches normal operating level, the controller can also be set to restart the pump.This function adds a high level of protection to costly equipment.
