I am researching two options for increasing the pool season on a pool I am in the process of building. The pool will about 12,000 gallon in ground gunite/shotcrete with infloor cleaning. I understand the solar will increase the swim season to about 9-10 months out of the year but probably won't for the remainder 2-3 winter months. Does anyone know if a heat pump would allow me the additional 2-3 months of pool usage in phoenix? Can anyone recommend a heat pump to install? What size of heat pump would I need?
Thanks for any advice offered.
