About to install an 18 x 36 IG and also want to heat it.
I've got an EKO downdraft gassifier (205K BTU wood boiler) that heats my house and separate shop in the winter and I'm considering piping a loop to the pool for a heat exchanger (during summers in Maine).
After doing some light research I'm finding that some state the pool water pulls so much heat that boilers can't keep up with the demand.....although I suspect that may have to do with balancing valves to manage return temps.
My other option is an LP unit just for the pool. Initial cost will be a bit more than the heat exchanger option, but ultimately, I want what works best.
Does anyone have any input/suggestions/experience on how wood heat compares to LP??
