Hi pool experts!
My wife and I are in the process of opening a therapy pool, as a local business.
I'm just starting to learn this exciting new world of pools...
My main question is how to figure out the best type of heating?
Our pool will be a round, 5m (16ft), 1.3m (4.25ft) deep pool.
We need it heated constantly to 35c (95f).
It will be located outdoors, but covered by a closed roof (hopefully a dome), as well as a surface cover when not in use.
The pool will be located in San Pedro, Belize. Electricity rates there are about US$0.25 per KWH.
Average temps there are 20-30c all year long (68-86f).
I think a heat pump is the way to go, due to high efficiency, but not sure what BTU / COP ratings I should look for.
I would appreciate any tips or resources to continue my research.
