I was speaking to my PB tonight and he asked the temperature of the water, it's currently at 79F. I live in Los Angeles County, the warmest the pool became was 88F. My PB mentioned that if I set the heater at 84F, it will maintain that temperature automatically and we can swim into the fall/winter months. He said the pool heater won't constantly be on, so it won't be a major source of energy usage. It will just turn on to maintain the temperature.
So what do the people of TFP think? Should I do that? I have Jandy equipment with the Aqualink PDA. On the PDA do I set the temperature of the pool heater at 84F and just leave it?
Will it really not use that much electricity?
