    Is 80k heat pump enough??

    I have a 18k fiberglass pool with swg & some shade.

    My gas heater just went out & considering a heat pump this time. Do you think a 80k Hayward heat pump is enough for a southcarolina location & no cover? Planning on keeping pool 80-85 degrees depending on my better half!

    Without a cover it's going to be on the small side. You'd be better off with a larger unit.

    Too small. Get the biggest one you can afford. Even if you cant afford it, and you go with a HP, get the biggest one they make or you will curse it every day
