I'm about to begin a new pool. We moved to a new home and had to leave behind our old one that we build 5 years ago. We're in SC.
Our old and new pool was/will be a 14x28 rectangle vinyl lined IG. 11-12000 gal 3-5 foot depth. We had a gas laarslite2 gas heater at the old house. It heated it up quickly on demand (we swam on Christmas one year... the water went from ~55 to 90 degrees in about 8 hours overnight) but man the gas bill. We liked ~ 86-88 degree water.
I'm considering a heat pump type heater on the new one. Anybody had experience with both and prefer one over the other as far as heating ability and utility bills?
Anybody got a "Heat Siphon" brand? Any better/different than a "typical" heat pump?
