    Mistcooling Pool Cooler

    So I'm thinking about trying one of these Mistcooling Pool Coolers:

    Amazon.com : Pool Cooler : Automatic Lawn Watering Equipment Accessories : Patio, Lawn Garden

    My pool has two returns so I assume I should just one of these as I assumed the circulation would be compromised if both my returns had these attached. Anybody used these? I searched the archives and it appears some people had success.

    Build your own with some PVC.

    I say PVC is like tinker toys for adults. Got a drill? Buy the fittings and build it. 1/16th drill bit works for the sprinkler.

    Nice idea - but you could easily build one for a LOT less money. And, if you've never worked with PVC before, this would be good practice in case you ever needed to do any repairs/replacement at your equipment pad.

    Be aware that using it a lot will cause your pH to rise do to the aeration.

    Thanks. I actually made a pool aerator for when I need to lower TA, but it wouldn't work for cooling. I might just try my hand with PVC. I'm always fighting high pH though so I'll have to weigh cooling vs. even more increased pH. But there's nothing worse than slipping into a pool that feels like tepid bath water. Water is 88 degrees right now and this summer is barely starting.

    My wife actual bought that same "fountain" at our local pool store. I have it hooked up now and will be running it at night. I'm going to use it at night for a week and see what effect it has on water temp.

    Well that didn't go as planned. Apparently some time in the night, the water pressure blew the sprinkler off of the fountain. Guess I should've put it on the lower pressure return. I'll tighten it down and try again tonight.
