    Pool Heater questions and opinions.

    So we had opted to not go with a heater but after reading so many posts with them are they cost effective, really worth the extra days, any other opinions? We have a 30,000 gal pool and the Summers are pretty long and hot here in North Mississippi.
    34,000 gal, IG vinyl lagoon shape, Pentair intelliflo varible speed 3hp varible speed pump, 2hp varible speed sheer descent pump, 520 clean an clear cartridge filter, letro legend with booster pump, 8ft bench with two 3ft sheer decents, 3 Pentair Magic Flow Laminar Jets, Intellibrite 5g led lighting, Build currently in progress

    Using a gas or electric heater to extend the swim season can get quite expensive. If that is worth it depends on your finances. We use our heater just a couple of days a year, to take advantages of the occasional really nice day near the edges of the regular swim season, and keep it off the rest of the time.

    A heat pump or solar might be worth considering. As noted, heating can get expensive. Using a solar blanket can help preserve heat and reduce costs.
