    submersable pump to circulate water

    Is it a reasonable idea to put a small submersible pump to circulate water from bottom of pool to top. The pool is not opened yet and the solar cover is on. I noticed that the surface temp during sunny day to be 50 degree but only 40 degree 4 foot down. Would the pump increase the solar heating from the solar cover.Or is this a waste of time money and electricity. I may also use the pump to run water through 2oo ft of garden hose.
    Thanks, Brian

    You will get more heat that way, though it won't be all that much more hear and it won't be especially efficient. The long garden hose approach is particularly inefficient.
