There’s nothing worse than jumping into your inground pool on a hot summer day only to find that it’s the temperature of tepid bathwater. So disappointing! This is a common issue that many homeowners encounter after they’ve opted to forgo a chiller. It might be tempting to pass on the initial expense of a chiller, but the Texas heat can wreak havoc on your pool without it. Click To Tweet
Cool Your Pool With a Chiller
Just a 10-degree drop in pool temperature can cause your water’s chemical balance to be completely thrown off. Warm water requires more chemical to balance all the organisms that thrive in warmth.
How It Works
As your pool water circulates through the system, refrigerated airflow removes the heat from the water as it passes. The chilled water is then pumped back into your pool, maintaining refreshing water temps even on the hottest days.
Many heat pumps use a refrigerant to maintain a steady swimming pool water temperature. If your pool is set at 70 degrees and drops below that, it will heat circulating water up to get the temperature up. Alternately, a pool set at 70 degrees will be cooled if temperatures go above that. It may be more beneficial to get a heat pump that can be reversed and used as a chiller to keep your swimming pool cool.
Without a heat pump in the winter and a chiller in the summer, you won’t be able to use your pool year round. It will fluctuate between too cold or too warm, with only a narrow window of perfect. Invest in a heat pump chiller and get the most out of your swimming pool!
