My wife and I are building a house in Austin, TX that is going to have a 65', 25,400~ gallon lap pool. We want to be able to use the pool 356 days a year. We were originally looking at the "Aqua Comfort heat/chill pump" but from my research it doesn't seem like it would be able to heat the pool in the winter months to the desired 80 degrees. Their calculator seems to imply we would need 4(!!) units.
So our next option is using both a "Aqua Comfort heat/chill pump" and a dedicated "Jandy JXi 399,000 BTU gas heater", although that's starting to get pretty expensive. Are there other options for heating/chilling a pool?
Do the Glacier Pool Chillers work well? They seem much cheaper than the Aqua Comfort. Are there any other options?
Here's all the info about the pool:
- Salt water Chlorinator
- Stucco Skimcoat on exposed exterior surfaces
- PeppleTec interior surface
- 6 Color LED Lights
- Jandy JEP 2.0 Variable Speed ePump
- Jandy DEV 60 DE Filter or CV 580 Cartridge Filter
- 1-2 Surface Skimmers
- Water Leveler
- Never Lube Valves
- Stainless Steel Ladder
- In-Floor cleaning system
- iAqualink - Smartphone Connected Controller
