    Combination pool heater/chiller

    I live in Miami, and the average temperature in my pool during the months of July and August is about 92 degrees, which is much warmer than I like. I would like it be around 84 or 85 so that it feels cooler and more refreshing when you go for a swim.

    I'm looking at getting a pool chiller such as the AquaCal Icebreaker model. I still need the heat pump component to heat the Jacuzzi.

    My question, for those who have experience with pool chillers, is how long it would take to cool the water temperature? For a 15,000 gallon pool how long would it take the unit to cool the water from 92 to 85 degrees?

    A dual heat pump will keep the temp at whatever you set it at

    It may take a day to get it down.. a heat pump is designed to stay on and keep a set temp range... raypac seems to have better rating from people on TFP that work on heat pumps

    Solar panels and heat pumps can both be used to warm your pool and cool your pool. If you have a south or west facing roof you are probably a great candidate for solar panels. Running solar panels at night will cool your pool.
