TALOS Lightning Detector for Pools & Spas

TALOS Lightning Detector & Safety Sign for Pools & Spas

With a reach of 25 miles, dangerous lightning can strike at any moment from a seemingly random ‘bolt out of the blue’ sky. A lightning strike can kill or seriously injure a swimmer or those sun bathing around the pool. Don’t be caught off guard while spending time at the pool!

The TALOS® lightning detector will keep you aware of approaching or departing lightning by providing both visual and audible alerts when lightning is in the area.

The lightning detector should be mounted a minimum of 3 feet away from cell phones, wearables, or any other devices emitting electrical noise to avoid false positive signals. If the detector goes through a sequence of all colors, this indicates that it is detecting electrical noise interference.
