Ok guys I've searched and found all sorts of threads on how to determine how much it costs to heat a pool and how long it takes. BTUs, therms & other terms I know nothing about. I can't figure it out.
So, please help a gal out. I simply need an estimation on when I should start heating my pool for a party.
~8000 gal (we thought it was more, but my Chems work best at this estimation.)
Water temp 72-74
Outdoor temp 65-80
Desired temp 85? - I guess?
I'm not concerned about the cost (well, not true, scared to see my cost, but it's the first time to heat the pool, I'll call it a learning experience)
My hot tub goes from 65-100 in like 45 min to an hour? I've never timed it, it's always hot by the time I get out there.
4 hours? 8?, 12?
