    Need Help Cooling Pool? Houston Texas

    Guys-

    Im putting in a 40,000 sq ft infinity pool, my bill of materials is just a heater 400,000BTU Im seriously worried about no cooler? The pool company is telling me 4k to add a cooler cause it needs a pump? The said combos heater/coolers don't work well. Is this true?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Our PB had a heater/chiller listed on our bid as 1 line item. No additional pump was listed...

    40k surface area??? That is one giant pool!!! Not sure a cooler would be necessary for a pool that large. I'm building a 20k gallon pool in Mesa, AZ and not doing a cooler. My previous house had a 17k gal pool and I never needed a cooler, water never got above 88 even at the peak of summer.

    You can check with Aquacal it can be purchased as Heater/Chiller. My PB said we wouldn't need it. But we are going to add one. But it's another model. We told PB that we don't want bath water on a 98 degree day in Florida. There was a new pool owner on the site here in Florida and he said he wished he added one. Hope that helps but you can also google pool heater/chiller and many options out there.

    Yeah this 46,000 since 35 feet actually more of it is infinity edge I'm hearing from a few people I don't need it.

    I have a 400,000BTU heater but not the combo I'm told the combo won't work?

    Most all pools can be kept reasonably cool through aeration alone. You can google that subject on the forum and see several examples. Most of the aerators are DIY projects and virtually cost-free.
