Hayward Smart Transformer

Hayward is also releasing a new Smart transformer in 2023 that will allow you to independently run four zones of lighting in your outdoor living space and the ability to sync them all together. This will enable you to have less of a footprint for lighting equipment in your equipment area and to use illumination in a more energy-efficient manner.

Imagine being able to light your pool up blue, your spa to be illuminated green while your baja shelf is orange, and then have LED WaterBowls with a different color shade. If you don’t want to have independent color zones, you can sync them together to all be displaying the same color or show. You no longer need multiple transformers to enable this type of display; all of this is possible from the Hayward Smart Transformer.

It uses 3-in-1 advanced oxidation process (AOP) that runs your pool’s water through UV, Ozone, and Hydroxyl radicals. Along with killing all of the bad things in your swimming water, it also significantly reduces the chlorine demand.

The Hayward HydraPure is a good fit for new or existing pools, as it can be added in as a complimentary sanitization option. Its efficient physical footprint eliminates moving your pool’s water between multiple machines and is much more energy efficient.
