Was thinking of buying a solar cover and reel, about 300-350 bucks.
16x 40 foot pool, 15,000 gallons.
I want to keep the water at 84 degrees.
266,000 BTU pool heater at .82 cents per therm. 80% efficiency.
water is 84 degrees. how much heat would I lose in a 24 hour period if the outside temperature was averaged 70 degrees?
trying to figure out cost of gas heater vs solar cover with heater.
need someone that is smart and good with math. lol
also solar cover would reduce chlorine consumption? but by how much?
