My pool is currently 65 degrees (I live in Florida), and I want to get the temperature up to the 80s as quickly as possible. Currently, 75% of the water flow to my pool goes through my spa and spills over into my pool. Does anybody know if it would heat significantly faster if I turned off the flow through the spa & spillway? In other words, would it be more efficient to heat the pool by directing all water from the heater directly to the pool (excluding the spa from the circuit)?
Any other tips on the most efficient settings to heat the pool?
