    Cool Heat Pump thoughts for PHX inground

    Last Nov, I had my 4' to 7' deep, 12'x24' plaster pool renovated to a 3.8' deep x 12'x24' pebblesheen pool. Approx gals went from 12.2k to 8.4k. right now pool is coming alive with winter temp of 49 leaving for 67 and rising every day. Running Nat Gas to equipment area is cost prohibitive, so I decided to go with a heat pump; just haven't figured out the BTU size yet.
    Here is my goal: Typically I started getting in the pool on 1 May (82F) and closed it mid October (82F). I would like to go to at least until 1 DEC and reopen on 1 APR. Does anyone in the PHX area have experience with a heat pump? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
    IG 8.4k gal, 12x24, pebble sheen, SGS3000 SWG, Triton II TR100HD sand filter, PCC2000 pop up clean, 1hp 2EZ Speed motor with Whisperflo pump for filter, 1hp Century Sq1102 motor w/whisperflo pump for clean, 3.8' pool depth, 2002 build date - Nov 2015 refurb date. Went from 12.2k gal to 8.4k gal and from plaster to pebble sheen w/abalone shell.

    The Hayward HP50HA is probably a good option for your climate and pool size.
