Hello everyone! Thanks for having a forum and all the useful info!
We're planning on installing a solar pool heater, but don't think it will be enough to keep our pool 82 degrees March to Nov, so we need to add supplemental heat. What's your experience with using a gas or heat pump? We've had several gas pool heaters in the past, but after having a $300 gas bill a few times, we're gun shy. It definitely heated things up fast. I've done lots of research, and my main concern is heat loss and reheating the pool; especially since we have a lot of shade. It would really help to get some feedback from others who've had a pool heat pump. Can anyone help?
