I'm in Mesa Arizona. Obviously it's hot here during the summer and a pool is a must if you ask me. I've been very successful at doing lots of things with my pool so far. Converting to BBB, making some solar heaters, etc.
Well, it's mid summer and my water temps are 90+ or so. Just a little to warm. Still swimmable but if I had a choice, I'd love to see the water temp around 85 or so. I was wondering if I could cool the water and I couldn't think of a workable way to do this.
A few days ago I installed an evaporative cooler in my house and it works GREAT. The water in the bottom tank in that is in the low 70's so I was wondering if I can use that water and circulate it thru my pool. The pump in the evap cooler says it's a 500 gph pump but lets say it puts out 200 gallons per hour at 70 degrees. Would that be enough to cool the pool water a few degrees????
I'm guessing I'd have to add another small pump to bring the water from the pool to the cooler and a line to bring the cooled water to the pool so I'm thinking it wouldn't be a tough thing to do.
What are your thoughts on this idea????????
