ControlOMatic, Inc. is a family-run company, located in Grass Valley, California. We have been designing spa chlorine generators since 2005 and electrolyzed water generators since 2020. We also produced chemical automation units from 2008 to 2021 (and originally with Acu-Trol since 1993).
We are dedicated to bringing innovative, cutting-edge, and value-driven products to the pool & spa industry, all in an effort to help consumers find ease and enjoyment out of taking care of their water. ControlOMatic was founded in 2005 by its current owner, Scott Lenney. Prior to launching ControlOMatic, Scott Lenney was the entrepreneurial founder and inventor of Acu-Trol, Inc., which developed and manufactured complete water chemistry chemical control systems, designed for commercial pool and spa use. Scott’s legacy in the pool & spa industry continues through ControlOMatic with the development of spa saltwater systems.
