Electronic Controls & Automation

Contact Us Now

We install, repair and upgrade Pool Electronic Controls & Automation for swimming pools & spas.

We regularly attend continuing education courses to install, troubleshoot and repair most brands of manufacturer’s products.

Spa and swimming pool electronic controls are convenient yet frustrating when not operating properly. From simple relays, variable speed pump issues, shorted-out spa side remotes, faulty temperature sensors, bothersome actuators to repairing and replacing a pool controller mother board, our factory trained technicians are available to solve your problems.

If you have an old controller that looks like any of the following images, you are fortunate if all the functions still operate correctly. Many of these Pool Electronic Controls products have been replaced and many remain viable controllers. We troubleshoot and provide options to help you determine whether repairing or upgrading is best for your circumstances.

Spa side remote info

When a Spa Side Remote is installed in the tile line, it will eventually become saturated with water and short out. Symptoms include pumps and lights turning on by themselves or not at all.
When this happens, the remote must be relocated.

  • I can't say enough good about Mike the Poolman.  When he came to my house to evaluate my pool issue, he first did a thorough review of my pool physically, looked at my pool controller settings, made several recommendations to me about how to take care of my pool better, and adjusted my pool controller settings right there on the spot for me!  Most importantly, he fixed my issue quickly and took great care in his work.  Mike's very friendly and reasonable in his rates.  Highly recommend!

  • Our pool heater hadn't been working for the past two years. It was time to replace it so I didn't hesitate to contact Mike. He had installed a variable speed pump a few years ago and did an excellent job. He had also done other equipment maintenance over the years. Mike was going to take a look at the heater to see what was wrong but I decided to just replace it as it was about 21 years old and continued to breakdown. Mike made a recommendation on a model and just finished installing it. He had to redo some plumbing to adjust to the new heater. He did an excellent job. He even repainted all of the plumbing pipes so it looks new.

    I can always rely on Mike if I have a swimming pool issue. He's friendly, kind and most of all very competent with any swimming pool issue. I can trust he will do the right thing and he always does. He even removed a few automatic valve actuators and converted them to manual without charge.
    I am grateful to have someone who I can trust in the swimming pool business who does outstanding work.
    Thank you Mike!

  • We needed a hand rail installed in our older pool.  Mike was consistently very responsive.  He offered a fair price and was always punctual.  He was especially helpful when we ran into a challenge installing the hand rail due to the age of the brick surrounding our pool.  His quick thinking enabled us to get the much-needed hand rail installed.  I can't recommend him highly enough!

  • I've had pools serviced in various places I've resided; Davis, Encinitas and Folsom; Mike The PoolMan (Mike Stinson) has been the best service provider that I've experienced. Mike's made complete repairs that most Pool Servicers won't touch. Mike is the complete service provider for regular maintenance, equipment repair/replacement and starting your pool back up after you've had it resurfaced! Mike's been outstanding and Victor has performed in an excellent manner with my weekly as part of Mike's crew! Thanks Mike!

He gave us lots of good options for our needs and the quality of work was top notch. Most importantly, I felt that Mike was one of the rare ones out there that truly knows his stuff. His expertise and friendly demeanor made us feel very comfortable with the whole project. We will definitely be calling Mike whenever we have our next pool project!
