VivoAquatics, a division of service firm VivoPools, has launched a smart technology platform for commercial pools. VivoPoint automatically sanitizes water using chemical feeders, while tracking and monitoring information in real time. Recorded information is sent to a cloud-based system for storage and analysis; it’s then reported as it happens with alarms and status reports. The data can be used to reduce operating costs, said Willan Johnson, CEO of VivoAquatics, based in Monrovia, Calif.

“VivoPoint will automate many of the manual tasks as well as provide management with the analytical tools to make more informed decisions,” he said.

Because VivoPoint is technology-based, the company expects it to change over time. “The platform will continue to evolve as we partner with additional clients to solve their needs through expertise and automation,” said Maxwell Koby, general manager of VivoAquatics.

Johnson doesn’t rule out the potential of one day applying the technology to the residential side. For now, the cost is too high, but that could change, he said.

VivoAquatics was founded in 2015 when it branched off from VivoPools to specialize in delivering chemical automation, technology and brand standards solutions for waterparks, resorts and other high-level commercial accounts.
