Just installed a 30 foot diameter inground pool 4 foot deep. Looking to now purchase a pool heater to extend the season some here in Indiana. My current water temperature is around 65 degrees (just info).
I thought I would ask for you help, experience, and recommendation for a pool heater.
If I have done my math correctly, the surface area of my pool is roughly 706 sq ft. The Ambient Air temps here in Kokomo, Indiana in the month of April and September is roughly 68 degrees. So my desired temperature rise would be about 12 to 15 degrees, so I am rounding up to 20. According to some of the charts I have seen on various websites, I would need at least a 184,000 btu heater. I planned to go with at least 200,000.
Can you guys give me your thoughts? Recommendations? Brands to go with?
