Hey Yall ! , i look forward to frequenting and contributing to this forum where i can i own a construction company and speciialize in insulation and windows, been doing it for 17 years (family owned business of 38 years) As stated im a indoor pool newbie !
Im in Eastern Canada (newfoundland) and just got my indoor pool up and running september past. I have a few questions, and im sorry if they are stupid or posted in the wrong section
So here goes:
First Up Heres What I got:
18x36 in ground pool oval (4ft deep shallow end, 8 ft deep end, aprox 100,000 liters or so of water)
Heat Types: Hayward heat pump for the summer and a 10kw electric heater for the winter
Sand type filter and a hayward pump (not sure of model)
The pool is indoors as stated.
I hired a contractor or pool builder to install my pool. I done the rest. When he installed it he never gave me any instruction on the heating system and circulation pumps and so on.
The heater is on ALL the time and the pump is on ALL time, 24/7.
Is this necessary ?
We use the pool on the weekends and in the night when we get home from work and the kids from school.
Should i add a timer or something on the pump and or the heater to make my electric bill more sensible or does it have to be on like it is?
Maybe i should get a pump controller or a high efficency pump ? or timer (if necessary)
Whats better ??
Also what type of timer should i get ? (If any)
Thanks for your time and of course input !
