    Pool Heater

    Good day all.

    First I would like to thank everyone in this community for everything. I love this site.
    Quick question.

    I have a raypak 255 000 btu pool heater and want to heat my pool but the question is my pool is 60 right now and I want to bring it to 80. Will this cause any over heating issues if I run the pool heater 24/7 or should I slowly increase the heat over the next week.

    Please and thank you

    I'll defer to the pro's but I don't think I would sleep too easy with a gas heater running all night. What about one of those cheapo solar blankets, (the bubble wrap type) and run the heater during the day? Assuming there are enough folks around to spot / smell any issues during the daylight hours, if not then I don't guess it makes much difference.

    We do this frequently (well, as often as we need to when we have people coming over the next day and the water temp has dropped appreciably) without incident.

    No problem with doing this. You might be surprised that it would heat quicker than you think. Invest in a solar blanket to keep the heat in.

    What are the outside temps where you live?

    Glad to see I'm not the only one getting duplicate posts.

    I have the same heater, my pump and heater run 24/7. There is no problem doing this as I've done it annually in the spring.

    Thanks Iceflow great idea.

    Thanks everyone for your input. I live in ontario and the current temp is 11 Celsius or 56 F. I do have a solar blanket as well. I am mostly concerned about over working the pool heater having it run for over 15 hours straight to increase the pool 20 degrees.
