Review Content IT WORKS!! Ive purchased several digital thermometers at various price points and most do not work or the transmission is no good beyond 25.I have this reveiver 50 away from the transmitter and get consistent readings.My only complaint with this thermometer would be the display is small. The receiver display is fine.The battery is easily accessible and doesnt sit below water level A good buy for pool enthusiasts Does the job! Perfect for a Lazy Pool Day Actually works amazingly well! Dont even need to leave your house to check your pool temperature! What will they think of next?! Quality product with a slight glitch Directions were wrong. One needs to hold down set button on both units for 8-10 seconds not just the receiving unit. Needs to be changed. Do not buy!!! I bought this product the 1st time. It lasted about 2 weeks before the temperature gauge in the pool got wet and stopped working. I sent it back and received another one, the same thing happened. Sharper Image was great about refunding my money which was wonderful. Dont waste your time on this product. It does not work!! Terrible If youlike getting used and broken eqipm,ent-then order from Sharper Image.After talking with them --"We apologize " and all that telephone talk, but still have to pay return freight --I woill never do busines with this company again Now I know the real temp in my pool Living in Az, a pool is not a luxury but almost a necessity. With this digital thermometer, I can check on the pool temperature just be reading the display inside my house. This will help me save money in the long run as I can use my heater more efficiently. A work in progress When we received this, one portion of the LCD temperature display on the top of transmitter (which floats in the pool) was not working so we were unable to see the entire number. Even though I knew I was going to exchange it, I put batteries in both the transmitter and the base unit to see how well they worked. Initially everything went well. I love the concept. Next morning, the signal was dropped and we found out that the transmitter had taken on water and appeared to be damaged. We are now hoping the replacement fares better. So far so good! So far so good on this pool Thermometer. Digital Wireless Pool Termometer We use it in our pool Great thermometer I purchase a different thermometer from another seller for more money and it fell apart after the first year! The old one deteriorated from the chemicals in the pool and the sunlight. This one is said to not succumb to chemicals and is UV resistant. Time will tell, but so far so good. Perfect so far Works as advertised so far. Hope it makes it through the season and beyond Pool thermometer Bought to replace a unit from a bug box store that constantly breaks. Hopefully this unit will be better Poor Quality Quality of product must have gone downhill since last year. I read reviews and thought I was getting a quality product. I have now ordered two and both suck from a receiver display perspective. I have tried new batteries even place the received 15 ft from transmitter and stil problems. I will NOT order another one from Sharper Image or one manufactured through GAME. Spa temp monitor The wireless temperature monitor was easy to set up and use. It is very accurate, and I can read the water temperature of my spa from inside my house in any weather. Great product!! Outstanding Product This unit actually works as described and provides very accurate temperature readings. The remote display is easy to read, especially with the backlight feature. Great concept This product saves me a lot of time checking the temp of my pool...I have a pool heater and it tells me when I need shut down or heat up. Excellent Product Would recommend to anyone Just perfect Works great! As the weather warms we check the readout several times a day. Happy to see the temps going up! No need to dip my toes into cold water anymore! Stopped working after a week or two. Save your money. After the first one of these I got stopped working after 7-10 days, I returned it for a replacement, which lasted for all of 2 weeks before it quit. I followed the instructions to the letter and wasnt responsible for its not working. Both times they were very nice and issued me a postage free return label, but I wouldve preferred a product that worked. Wonderful thermometer Thermometer was able to sync as soon as batteries were put in. No additional manipulation required. That was wonderful! Thermometer works well. Readout is inside the house. Everything works exactly as promised in the packaging. Great Product we werent expecting this to be as great as it is! It is very efficient and so easy to use. We hope it lasts through our tough desert season...time will tell! Pool Thermometer that Works Other digital pool thermometers that I have tried failed right away. Most leaked; some just couldnt hack the environment where they were supposedly designed to work. So Far So Good Its a little early to review this product. I have only had it a week. It was easy to set up and is working well now. Lets see in a month or so. At your fingertips This was a gift and my friends love it. Now they can see the temperature of their pool at a glance without walking outside to pull a thermometer out of their pool to see the water temperature. Useful and Handy Wireless Pool and Spa Thermometer I was looking for a new and useful pool thermometer and was pleased to find the one I purchased which has a unit to keep in the house which keeps track of the pool temperature reading without having to go outside and look directly at the thermometer. I have been pleased with the accuracy and ease of use. Look forward to seeing how it operates over time. Poor quality It quit working within two weeks - not sealed well. Return after 2 days digital display not waterproof return after two days very happy so far every hot tub thermometer Ive ever had fill with water .so far this one is sturdy an I love the indoor guage. Moisture in unit after 1st use Moisture was in the transmitter and the "fog" made it hard to see the digital display. It went in the pool July 1. It quit yesterday, July 7. Miserable performance. Simple To get it going, just follow the simple instructions. You need to add about 6 AA batteries. Works immediately Digital Wireless pool Themomerter At first appearance the thermometer appears to work well. I received it only two weeks ago and placed in pool the same day. Although I have not had ample time to truly review this item I have notice some of the good features and one less active feature. The length does prevent it from entering the skimmer however the digital display in the house has a poor display when not located directly at eye level. Mounting it at eye level allows you read the display however placing below eye distorts the readout. works great simple to use, easy set-up Stopped working after a week or two Looks good, seemed to work fine, transmitted OK, no problems. But then after a week or two it stopped working. Investigation showed what looked like a little water inside the display on the transmitter unit. (All fittings were snug - this was not user error!) I opened the battery compartment (did I mention it was snugly sealed?), which is the only opening it has, and am now hoping it will dry out and start working again. If not, Im going to return it for a replacement or refund. If I get satisfaction, Ill update my review. Nice thermometer Just ordered and quickly received this product. Only have it about a week or so, but so far so good. Took seconds to "install". It so nice to know the pool temp from inside. Especially when I had the heater on to get it ready. pool temp sensor Definite improvement over old unit....obviously dont know how it will perform over a period of time but so far so good I like it make it nice not having to go out to the pool Can see it inside Easy pool temp monitoring Makes pool temp monitoring easy. Failed after 2 weeks Great idea. Something we really enjoyed, but pool unit failed after two weeks. No battery problem, but no transmission or local indication. Received as a gift. Will try to return for another unit and try again. I would buy this product again It was very easy to set up and start using. Works great. A good producut Concerned that by the end of the summer will chlorine make it hard to read?. Pool temperature on site In the pool or in the house, you always know what the temp is Grerat Product Installed the batteries, dropped the sensor into the pool and placed the readout display on nearby table on the lanai. How simple is that. Price was very reasonable and the product worked exactly as described. Sharper Image has another home run. Digital Wireless Pool and Spa Thermometer First product only lasted 1 week but Sharper Image quickly got me a replacement and it has been working well since. It occassionally losing signal but for the most part I am happy with the product. No More Squatting!!! As I get older the knees dont always work as well as they used to and no one wants to go into a cold pool. Now I look at the pool water temperature inside the house and I know if it is time to swim or not! Awesome product! FINALLY... one that works (so far) ive tried two other brands, one of which i had two of them. this one is easy to set up (a 1st grader could do it). most important water hasnt leaked into the battery compartment. the simple single screw out battery cover with o-ring should seal out the elements (only time will tell). the competitors units literally require disassembling the unit with 6 or so screws with a gasket that wont give a good seal. i even tried using silicone in hopes that would work. i finally began using as an indoor/outdoor thermometer under an roofline so it wouldnt get wet. as for now, I LOVE THIS UNIT and the remote (distance from transmitter) is greatly improved over all the others! i would definitely buy this one again (thus far....only a week into the season, the reason in title for "so far". Easy to install The product is used in our home pool. the additional display is in our kitchen. There is no guessing as to the temperature of the water.It is great.
