With the last 3 weeks or so of 90+ degree heat I find my pool not being used and the wife and kids going to the local public pool, sometimes driving a little further and retreating in a local beach.
I have rigged up fountains, bought fountains. Bought paint, and the outside of our pool is now white instead of dark blue, tried running the filter from midnight to 7am. I have even bought a canopy tent to where the sun is only on the pool maybe 2-3hrs a day instead of 11-12hrs a day. I have even been stupid/crazy and drained then refilled the pool 3 times this summer only to have the water in the high 80's to low 90's 2-3 days later. We are NOT cold natured and find no relief in a pool that is over 80 degrees during the summer. To us, it is like taking a bath. Thus causing myself to rethink our large pool purchase for next spring.
I ran across a pool chiller website and was wondering if anyone has one of these and what their thoughts are.
Should I spend $1700 for one or just save my money and cancel the pool order and spend our $5-6k towards season passes to the public pool and lake each year?
