I bought a ipool (1,300 gallon pool) to swim (has a harness) but I underestimated Seattle's crappy weather and the pool is way too cold.
I really only need to heat it for an hour of swim 4 days a week and I do not need it very warm just tolerable cold.
I have read horrible stories about electric bill on electric heaters; however, I do not have gas on the yard and I dont want to spend thousand on a heat pump.
1) What is your recommendation to do here?...how bad will be the electric bill hit?
2) Will a 5 kW 1.89 GPM Smart Spa Electric Spa Water Heater be enough or should I go for the 11 kW 1.89 GPM one?
3) I was also looking at the CSPAXI11 Comfortzone 11Kw Cspa Electric Spa Heater, is that one better choice?
3) Is there any recommendation for any other electrical heater in $500's range?
