What is PoolFriend?

PoolFriend is your patented solution, designed in the USA, created with your security in mind.

We’ve been busy for a long time​

PoolFriend, like Rome, wasn’t built in a day. We have thoroughly developed our patented solutions taking the necessary time to make sure they provide maximum security.​

The seed
2015

PoolFriend is born in Spain

The idea is born to create solutions to eliminate drowning accidents.

Groundwork
2019

Technical requirements are completed

We selected the technology solutions and the framework within which we would be operating our system.​

Kickoff
2020

We moved to Florida and began development

PoolFriend initiates development of our first solution. We decide to créate a self standing product as it gives us more go-to market scope and better development flexibility.​

We move on to our second system​​

Using expertise gathered during 2022 in the lights’ industry we decide to kickstart our newest system which will integrate with almost any swimming pool out there.​

Minor tweaks create our first retail candidate

Resonance chamber, rearranging of internal components …. The devil is in the details.​
