Good day, and thank you for the opportunity to present Chemtrol®, and for your time.
My name is Kobby Green, and I’m the MD and founder of Chemtrol® Australia. Instead of diving right into details about Chemtrol® and our product range (don’t worry, we’ll get to that shortly), I want to start by highlighting our approach to technology and product development.
At Chemtrol®, we prioritize listening to our customers and solving their problems. What sets us apart is our commitment to continually refining and improving our product line. This includes our programmable controller range, dosing equipment, and sensor selection.
For instance, we regularly push out software updates to our controllers with new features – all at no additional cost to you! We believe in providing value and ensuring that our products evolve to meet your needs.
Now, I’m going to walk you through a typical real world, problems pool operators face. Why? Because I know you have a 100 other things you need to focus on – and it’s 2024, so technology should be making your life easier, right?!
Overdosing of chlorine
Imagine arriving at your facility in the morning only to discover that your existing controller failed to stop the feed, resulting in excessively high chlorine levels.
Now you need to treat the water in order to reduce the chlorine level, or even close the pool for 24 hours.
This is not going to happen with Chemtrol. Why? Because they have a critical ‘time limit’ safeguard against overdosing. This safety feature is standard on our commercial pool controllers and it not only prevents overdosing, but it also stops your chemical pumps from running dry for long periods.
It’s just one example, but I wanted to start with something practical that you can easily relate to.
Now, let’s talk about our brand. While we may be relatively new to the Australian market, it’s crucial to understand that we bring over 45 years of experience from the US – the largest and most competitive pool industry in the world.
Chemtrol® Who are we?
High-performance controller manufacturer, specifically designed for commercial pools, aquatic facilities and spas – with critical expertise in water chemistry and automation technology.

Remote monitoring and control
True duplex operation with identical duplicate screens
With our remote operation function, you can effortlessly control and monitor multiple facilities using your laptop, tablet, or our mobile app.
Unlike others on the market, our remote monitoring management fee is a one-time purchase for the life of the controller. There are no ongoing fees, with the exception of sites with a Telstra sim-card installed.
Web Access, Remote Operation
Automatic data logging, a comprehensive history data portal, detailed graphs, and Excel reports are all part of our system.
Plus, receive online alerts directly to your mobile, email, or both.
Graphs - Indoor Pool

We also offer a convenient app accessible via your tablet or mobile phone
With this app, you have control anytime, anywhere
Imagine standing in front of the controller; the app mirrors the controller screen, allowing you to perform any function seamlessly, with changes reflected instantly on the controller screen.
Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
Why does the total cost of ownership (TCO) matter to you?
Because the Chemtrol® long-term value package ensures peace of mind, offering:
√ A 5-year electronics warranty on the controller
√ A 2-year warranty on all sensors and other parts
√ Remote operation management fee for the life of the controller
Connect Dosing Equipment to Chemtrol®
If your facility utilizes liquid chlorine and acid, we have the perfect combination recommended for you
Pairing a Chemtrol® unit with a Blue-White® metering pump allows for versatile application
Both liquid chlorine and acid share the same squeeze tube and roller
Essentially, any sanitizer equipment can be directly connected to Chemtrol via 240v, voltage-free, or 12-24vDC, including salt chlorinators generators, calcium hypochlorite systems, brominators, UV systems, and more.
Advanced Pool Automation
√ Main filter pump programs
√ Auto makeup level control with ultrasonic level sensor
√ Water flow-meter Input
√ Heater, temperature control
√ Filter Control, Backwash Programs
Lets review a few important differences: Chemtrol® vs. others
1. Critical Safeguard Against Overdosing: “Time limit”
Designed to automatically disable the feeders or other equipment in the event of equipment failure
A safety feature that any pool controller ‘must have’ in order to prevent overdosing, and chemical pumps from running dry for long periods
2. Dosing pumps cannot lose prime even against maximum line pressure
Cannot vapor lock nor siphoning even when pumping chemicals that off-gas, like Sodium Hypochlorite
3. Software is updated as part of our service
This is our way to help customers with new features and capabilities
4. Unique remote monitoring and control
Identical duplicate screens: from the controller to your PC, Laptop or any mobile device
Remote operation management fee is for the life of the controller
