    New heatpump!

    Installed my new Hayward heat pump last Saturday myself, was actually pretty simple. Took me about 4 hrs by myself. Pool went from 78 to 85 in 14 hrs! Who says heat pumps don't heat water quickly??? Really happy with my decision, and extended my season a few more weeks. I'm surprised at how quiet it is too.

    Glad it is working out for you, a longer swim season is always good if you get those sudden warm days. Remember, heat pumps work better the warmer the ambient air temp is. BTW, my gas heater, in that same time frame, would have taken my pool from 78 to 106

    Yea..I know gas is better...but its not an option for me. Didn't expect the HP to work so well though. It heated that in 65 degree weather.

    Nice! Same here - I'm seeing about a degree an hour, even when it's in the 60s and 70s here. And the cost? Just under a dollar an hour for the heat pump AND the pump to run. Very happy with the purchase.

    Yup, sounds like the same weather here! We already have friends coming over Saturday! Raining all day today and you can see the steam coming off the cover.
