We had similar weather yesterday but the heat pump was not running. The water temp went from 51- 54 all day. I'd say it is working.

We could be swimming in MA Saturday, target is 75F.

Pool has been 83 every day since 5/2. Heater runs from 9am to noon to recover from the cool nights. We’ve been swimming for a week now.

Well, May cost me about $200, June $125, July $0, August, $75 September...We shal see, It's been running 8 hours a day for a week straight to keep it in the 83-87 range.

What a hoot though, I was in it Sunday night before the Pats game and it was amazing! 85 degrees and steam rising through the LED lights.
We were in it last night, 87, maybe tonight, it is 86 right now.

How is that electric bill holding up? Would you still recommend the heat pump?

I am leaning Heavily towards the UltraTemp 140. I do have an integrated SPA so I am concerned about how long it will take to heat 400 gallons to 95+ degrees
