Pool Water Temperature Monitoring

Has anyone found a reliable battery-operated sensor that you can place in the pool skimmer basket and read the temperature in Smarttthings? I have gone through two other sensors only to have them die after three to four months. Presently I can ask Alexa the pool temp through my Hayward app. The downside with this solution is the pump needs to be running and I can not get the temperature to display on my Actiontiles.

why not use a fibaro implant/usb with a ds18b20?

The first fibaro went bad after three months and two batteries and the second one chewed up batteries too…

Coming back to this as I feel like redoing some of the automations and exposing the info via SmartThings, among other things… Any updates on this, Adam? :slight_smile:
