This is the beginning of our 2nd season with our pool after a rather disastrous last year which I won't bore you with. Our Intex 15' x 42" deep above ground pool is settled on level (ish) ground and we'll be heating it with a 9Kw heater (yet to purchase). Unless of course there is other recommendations!
I've had our electrician friend run the correct size armoured cable to outside and it's waiting in a large loom in order to be placed. The pool is around 8 feet from the location where I want to site the pool pump and heater. The question I have is ideally I'd like to put the pump and heater in some kind of weatherproof enclosure which is removable after the season is over. The armoured cable which will feed the heater is connected to a separate fuse / RCD board inside the house so can be isolated.
Can anyone recommend:
a) A small enough weatherproof enclosure to house both the heater and pump.
b) A method of connecting and disconnecting the power to the heater or must I de-wire the heater
I do realise that I should try and keep the pipes from the heater to the pool as short as possible but feel that 8 feet will kind of be the minimum it can be.
Any other tips / tricks warmly welcome.
