15,000 Gallon In Ground - Gunite/Concrete
Spill Over Spa
Ray-Pak 11KW Spa Heater (Electric)
1 Pump for Pool
1 Pump for Spa
Bought this house in August. The pool was much cooler in August than I thought it would be, I contribute this to it being screened and the fact my pool is never in full soon. It always has shade somewhere due to trees. I would like to swim in my pool during the winter and am up in the air over a heat pump.
Can I remove the RayPak and use a heat pump to heat my spa if I wanted to? Currently I have to turn on the Ray-Pak 3 - 4 hours before I want to hot tub which is fine. I'd be willing to bypass the heat going into the pool and only allow it go to the spa for nights/days I wanted to "hot tub". Will a Heat Pump bring the temp up to 95+? If so, I could remove my Spa-Pak and use the wiring/circuit from this for the heat pump? Would a heat pump bring the spa up to temp pretty fast (assuming pool is kept at 82 in the winter)?
Also, how long would it for a heat pump to heat up the pool from its current unheated state? a day or two? Current temp is 70. I will be using a solar cover.
