    AGP Insulation

    Hi guys,

    Me again from sunny England or not so sunny but very wet! Well never mind!

    Quick question..... I have added a pic. would my water heating be helped if I insulate the pipe going to the heater and filter pump

    Intex have supplied clear hoses and didnt know if I put pipe insulation around this would help. Typical Temp during the day 20 degrees C - night about 14 degrees C.

    At the moment the pool takes 2.5 days to get to its max of 35 degrees c (starting temp of 20 degrees C)

    I do have a solar cover but seems to be more like bubble wrap.

    Pipe insulation would help, but only a very very little. Having a solar cover on at night makes a big difference. After that the next thing to try is solar panels.

    I don't know how well an Intex pool will hold heat even. That said, we find 26 to 28 to be good for swimming here. 35 is more like bath water. At 30 we found it too warm. I hate to think the cost of heating a pool to that temperature.
