I am in central New Jersey, with a 30k gallon in-ground L-shaped Vinyl pool. Pump is behind the pool so trenching a NG line is not really an option. Propane tank and heater, perhaps, but HP is best choice today due to layout limitations (power already there with mature landscaping).
How big a heater? 110k BTU ? More? Pool gets a lot of sun, but some shade. Pool didn't break 80 deg this summer, but hit 82 last summer during heat waves for a bit. Ideas? Is Heat pump sufficient to get to 83 deg here in NJ ? How expensive to run? How mush power do the really draw? 30 Amp x 240? 40+? Could use some advice. Thank you!
