Thanks scottsams! Planning on a 400k unit and asked the plumber to quote a 400k btu gas line. It will be cast iron attached to the outside of the house. The gas main is on the opposite side of the house, and the pool is a level below so it's a little tricky.
yea, i have a 400k heater. line is ~50' to meter and someone here told me with my WC at 7 a 1" pipe was way too small.

Today was the last day of school for our two little ones, pool temp was 85 so they jumped in at 8:30 and swam/played until 9:15...they love TFP :)

Pool is up to 84 today after running the heater for a few days with cover on. I have the heater set to 82 but think I'll lower it a bit and let the sun do the rest.

78. But the sun is shining for the first time in days!

Update: surface got up to 82. I wasn’t brave enough to hop in and check the bottom!

we finally had a partly sunny day, the pool got up to 87, and I jumped in a couple times :paddle:

looks like this will be short lived as Florida increases it's bid to be renamed the cloudy/wet state

We've had a highly unusual warm May. 85 degrees outside clear and sunny several days a week.

Pool is maintaining itself at 82. Using the heater just a little to get it to the 84F sweet spot.

It's amazing how chilly the water feels by comparison of a 2 degree difference.

On those 95-100 degree summer days though 82 feels glorious!
