TALOS Lightning Detector for Pools & Spas
Enjoy your leisure time at the pool while knowing the TALOS lightning detector will keep you aware of approaching lightning or storms.

Where to Mount the Lightning Detector
Mount the lightning detector a minimum of 3 feet away from cell phones, wearables or other devices emitting electrical noise. The detector will go through a sequence of all colors when it detects electrical noise interference. If this happens, relocate the detector.
How it Works
When lightning is first detected (up to 25 miles), the detector will flash all 8 LEDs for 5 minutes. To save battery life, after 5 minutes of lightning detection, the detector switches to blinking every other LED for the remaining time that lightning is detected (red, blue, or green depending on distance of lightning).
Battery Instructions & Installation
It is necessary to replace batteries as soon as the lightning detector indicates the batteries are almost dead. The detector will beep and flash the LED twice indicating that batteries need to be replaced. This alert is given every 10 seconds. If you are not using the lightning detector, make sure you remove the batteries prior to storing the detector.
Lightning Detector & Safety Sign
The TALOS® Safety Sign with attached lightning detector is a great addition to community and at home swimming pools. When mounted, swimmers can easily see lightning alerts and instantly know the distance of the lightning.
Comes in two sizes: 14″ x 14″ and 18″ x 24″.
