Our pool has just been completed! Late in the season (upstate NY), but this is good in some ways... It's a liner-based inground, kidney shaped and 14x28, 6.5 deep end. We also got an Aquacal heat pump. The company will be back in a week to install the saftey cover and close the pool.
So, we are working away to keep it clean of leaves and debris in the meantime. Would I be crazy to fire up the heat pump for a few days? Temps are supposed to be mid-50's to mid-60's over the weekend. The solar cover provided is still in a box (and not trimmed) so we would not have it covered... Lows at night are high 30's to low 40's.
Water temp is now 50, and as I understand heatpumps it would be slow to heat the pool...
