Does anyone know for sure if I can wait to install a gas heater for my 14,000 gallon IG pool? I am in the middle of construction and plumbing is next. My project manager says I can do it afterwards, the salesman says no, and a "trusted" other builder says now is the time to do it.
My main issue is it looks like I will have to upgrade my gas service and I can't get to the bottom of it. My gas supplier tells me the builder needs to tell me what the pressure requirement is for the heater and my project manager is puzzled on this. I know my neighbor, who used the same builder, got a smaller heater so she didn't have to upgrade the service....hers is just for a Jacuzzi....mine would be for the pool for May and September. I'd hate to rush into a decision and pay $3,100 for the heater and install.....and then find out that I have to shell out another 3k for upgrading the service. The builder is not being helpful here and it's like they have never done this before!?
So, at this point, I'd rather wait.....can a heater be install after the pool is built??
