    Glacier Pool Chiller DIY Install

    I finally figured out today why my Galacier was only dropping 4 degrees no matter what my variable pump speed was. I have one return valve which has two pipes. One pipe to my inside pool spa (called spa return) and one to the pool (called return pool) all controlled by one valve. The PB set the...

    My Glacier Pool Cooler GPC25 cost me $1,950 plus $400 shipping from TC Pool Equipment in California. Add $300 (by my tile guy) for the concrete pad and $200 by Mr. Amp electrical install to my spare circuit breaker. Plumbing parts cost me around $450 plus (2 check valves were $180) and another...

    "How is yours plumbed?" I finally balanced my Glacier GPC25 pool cooler. The inlet #1 ball valve controls wand rpm speed same as my Pentair Variable Speed pump. I normally run my Pentair at 1400 rpm all night but that only produced 10 gpm which caused my Glacier to take 11 hours to drop pool...

    Glacier Pool Chiller DIY Install

    "That is a start. The wetness is not normal...my pad and surrounding dirt are dry as a bone after an overnight run. I was getting some water out of the overflow before the pump would kick on to pump the cold water back into the pool. It was just a dribble and I put a 90 elbow on it facing up...

    "Good deal! Now you just need to play with the runtime to get it where you want it. If your water temp is high, you may have an initial runtime longer than expected to get it down initially then should be able to shorten the runtime to maintain it." Hi, I ran it last night from 8:00pm to...

    Glacier Pool Chiller DIY Install

    "I run mine pump at 2,400 rpm with 4 other returns and that gives me 12 rpm on the spray head. Instructions say fast walk...mine had a sticker with RPM's." So I ran the wand test and with only one return going to the pool, it was 1500 rpm on my Pentair Variable Speed pump that gave me 12 rpm...

    Glacier Pool Cooler Questions

    A few questions as I just got in my Glacier GPC25 Cooler in, but not going to be plumbed until Monday 8/16/21. 1. The fan blades came slightly angled/tilted, not 100% horizontally flat. Is that how they should be, slightly tilted? 2. I have a Pentair Superflow VST variable speed pump. I...

    Glacier Pool Chiller DIY Install

    My SWG (salt cell) is the last in line before the return to my pool. Do you think I should install this cooler before the salt cell or after it? Thnink this might be a good thing to me in the desert of New Mexico where the humidity is rarely over 30% and my pool temps average 90-94 all summer...
