Pentair’s latest automation innovation, the IntelliConnect Control and Monitoring System, was named Best New Product at the 2018 International Pool | Spa | Patio Expo. Pentair received the award for the second year in a row, having won Best New Product for its energy-efficient UltraTemp ETi hybrid pool heater in 2017.

The IntelliConnect Control and Monitoring System allows pool owners to conveniently and easily monitor and control their pool’s functions, including pumps, sanitizers and lights via a user-friendly app from anywhere in the world — or right at home.

“We’re proud to once again receive the Best New Product award at PSP Expo,” says Jerome Pedretti, senior vice president of Pentair Aquatic Systems. “Our goal is to ultimately help pool owners truly enjoy their pool with friends and family. That’s why we work to innovate smart, sustainable solutions that help pool owners more easily manage their pool while also decreasing maintenance time and conserving water and energy resources.”

More than 75 products were considered for the prestigious award; winners were chosen by a group of judges representing many segments in the industry.
