Currently, you cannot force the Sutro to take a reading. We are building smarts such that we want you to leave us alone - the point of the technology is it follows you and not you following it.
We take into consideration:
- When you're swimming, if there has been a bather load change
- If there is a notable chemistry change
- If there is a weather change
- And we're measuring 3 times per day, way more than you've ever measured
With all of this combined, we've built algorithms to make sure we don't over bother you, so you're not walking to your pool every 8 hours putting in tablespoons of chemicals.
