    Aerators

    I have read multiple threads on various designs of aerators. Obviously I will need to experiment but my plan is to build something to connect to the 4 eyeball returns I have. I also have a small waterfall but not sure that will accomplish much.

    My question is mainly on timing: I think I know the answer but it seems counter intuitive. Temps in DFW the past few days have been highs of 97 with relative humidity of 35% (5PM) and low of 79 with humidity at 77% (6AM). My pool water is around 91 degrees with the pump just running at nigh (no aerators other than waterfall).

    Should I run the aerator/pump when temp is at the lowest but humidity the highest or vice versa when humidity is at the lowest?

    This appears to be a popular topic given the summer time heat wave. I have a 9,000 gal gunite free form pool

    Night time running of a fountain helps a lot. My husband Skippy built us a fountain (see link in siggy line) and it dropped our pool water temp 5 degrees in one day the first evening we ran it.

    Re: Aerators

    Thanks...I read Skippy's aerator thread. I see you are in GA so probably experiencing the same pattern of humidity.

    Seems like time of lower humidity would be better.
