Lightning Detection for Pools and 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.

TALOS Lightning Detection Solutions

TALOS GodFACT: Thunder can only be heard from up to 10 miles away, but lightning CAN STRIKE from 25 MILES AWAY!

Pool time is your time, and while you’re enjoying your own backyard oasis, you shouldn’t have to worry about inclement weather putting you at risk of lightning exposure. Unfortunately, we can’t rely on our ears to keep us safe; though we may be able to hear thunder up to 10 miles away, resulting lightning can strike even further, all the way up to 25 miles. That’s where we come in!

Our lightning detection for pools uses the same top-notch technology meteorologists use at weather stations, and what’s better is that our devices are even easier to use and interpret!

Use lightning safety solutions developed by TALOS to improve situational awareness of approaching & departing storms and keep outdoor enthusiasts safe!

Safety isn’t an option, it’s essential!

However, if you’re looking to save your battery life, you can press the ON button twice to put the device into auto-sleep mode. In this mode, the device will turn on only if storm activity is detected, but will turn off after 30 minutes, if it doesn’t detect activity.

Wherever you decide to mount your pool safety lightning detector, it’s important to keep it at least three feet away from any devices that may discharge electrical signals, such as cell phones. This electrical noise can confuse the device, which can cause it to emit a false positive alarm. The good news is, if the device does detect electrical interference, it will flash through the entire color sequence to alert you.
