Hi All. I don't want to give up our fun family time in the water just yet. How can I keep my pool open for longer?
Seems like solar is the way to go, but we don't have a south facing roof or place in yard to do a stand (I think). We have a west facing roof right next to the pool and it is blazing hot in the afternoons here in South Louisiana. Can anyone give me some ideas that might work for us and aprox cost? Would my current pump work with a solar set up? I also still have the pump that came with the pool, less than 1/2 hp, never used.
How much would a bubble type blanket help in the evenings for an AGP like mine? Husband says it would be a waste, but I'm not so sure. This weekend pool water was 84, then dropped to 72 overnight and has only gotten back to 79.
Lastly, I'm thinking of getting a hot tub also. Since my pool is so small, any chance we could use that to heat the water in the pool occasionally without breaking the bank?
