Thanks. Indeed pgBouncer is the usual candidate in front of postgres streaming 
replication, together with pgpool. Take care that your link on pgBouncer dates 
back from 2008 !. 
I had a look at pgBouncer in the past, but it was not actively maintained at 
that time. So I settled on a combination of pgpool and repmgr. People on pgpool 
mailing list are very reactive and helpful and the doc on the project is 
continuously improving.

pgpool does just that: it enables you to use the standby database as a read

This looks a very interesting possibility, although it is more related to 
automated failover than to load balancing of read only queries : postgresql-2/postgres-10- libpq-read-write/, depending on 
your client it might be supported. It is not supported - yet ? - by the 
node-postgres driver.

I am also trying to split read and write queries, where reads should go to
the slave server (streaming replication) and writes to the master server.
Any tool available to perform this activity instead of two connection pool?

Actually, if you are looking for load balancing PgBouncer is better than 
PgPool. There is a nice article about that.

I used PgBouncer in a few of ny previous positions and found it to be very fast 
and efficient.

I reserve the right to fantasize.  Whether or not you 
 wish to share my fantasy is entirely up to you.
