    AZ Pool Aerator

    In order to cool the pool during the hottest part of the AZ summer season, I run my pool aerator at nighttime, while the pool cleaner is doing its thing. The aerator normally cools the pool down by about 4 to 5 degrees. My question: would the aerator also cool the pool during the middle of the day, when temperatures are getting into the 110's? Or would the pool instead gain heat running the aerator at these extreme temps?

    I ran mine when it was 100ºF and it cooled the pool pretty well. Be aware that aeration raises your pH so keep an eye on it. If you can post a pic of your aerator running the droplet size makes a big difference. Also, surface disturbance makes a difference too.

    Re: AZ Pool Aerator

    My aerator spray is almost like a fine mist, with very small droplet size. I always set it to cover most of the pool area, without spraying outside of the pool. I'm just wondering if the extreme temps (105 degrees and above) diminish the cooling of the water when using the aerator, or worse yet, causes the water to heat up even more.
    Thanks for the tip about the PH level going up. I had noticed that I am having to add muriatic acid more frequently, but I didn't know about the correlation with aerating.
