Okay, so we didn't get to enjoy our pool as much as I'd like to have last summer. It was just too cold for me alot of the time! We have woods behind and beside us so we get about 6 hours of full sun a day on the pool. Not enough to keep it nice and toasty. I can't remember what I thought was a good temp now, 84? Anyway. Seems 5-7 degrees would of made all the difference.
We didn't even swim in the pool after early Aug. (we live on the coast of VA, so it's not like I'm up north in the colder weather or anything. )
So, Solar Panels, one option. But is it really? If I don't have enough sun to heat the pool how well will those work?
Option 2, Heat Pump.$$
Solar panels are a pain, they take up alot of space and I don't have the sun...or do I?
Any help is appreciated!
We'd love to be able to use our pool and REALLY enjoy more than one month of the summer. (July, btw)
I mean, we are already having 80+ degree weather here on some days but we know we won't use the pool until mid June at the earliest probably.
