Hi guys, pool has got to 14 degrees here in the sunny UK (dont laugh)
I have a 9kw heater which appears to be working fine, this is my first pool so a few questions if you would be so kind.
As a first test / trial run I had the heater on for approx 9 hours yesterday, it was a nice sunny day temperature somewhere around 20 at a guess, the pool temperature went from 14 to 18 degrees only, whats the best or most economical way to use one of these Elecro electric heaters ? I think I want the pool at about 25 degrees, should I run the heater until pool hits 25 and then switch off or leave on all the time ? I think we will use the pool only weekends so I am thinking once summer arrives to turn on the heater on a Thursday night and turn off Friday or when up to temperature ready to use friday night and the weekend, and then repeat again each week or am I better ie is it more economical leaving on full time.
Pool is above ground type but with 4" polystyrene jacket, and will have 400 micron bubble cover come next pay day .
