I live in Florida, I am considering the purchase of an Electric pool heater. I know they are expensive to run, my neighbor told me that his costs him 100 bucks a week to operate. Due to the location and layout of my home, solar panels are not an option. I am not planning on using the heater all the time, it will only be used on special occasions. I have a son who's birthday is in December and one in April they have never had a pool party because the water is usually too cold. The only other time I might use the heater is if we get out of town company during winter months.
What brands and or model of electric heaters should I be considering. My pool is 16*35, I think 16000 gallons "If memory serves me right". Gas is not an option it must be an electric heater.
One thing to consider is that I have a Pentair intellitouch with a Intelliflo pump, I would imagine I need to ramp up the water flow when the heater is on? Normally It runs about 40 GPM, when in use I ramp it up to 80GPM.
