How to cool pool water?
Today everybody is going green. Green this and green that, well in the deep south there is a way to lower your water temperature without draining your wallet in electricity. There are pool heater/coolers out there that work like an air conditioner unit but these units are expensive and cost a lot of money to operate. People overlook coolness of water in the deep south and put too much into heating a pool without looking at the summertime heat. I had a customer 2 years ago call me up and told me her water temperature was at 98 degrees in June and it was like swimming in your bathtub outside and they didn’t use the pool. So, I did a little research to find her an economical option out there that would not cost over $100 a month to operate. Well I came across the Glacier Pool Cooler and learned it was like running a 110 volt fan 8 hours a day. The cost to run this unit once installed is around $5 a month. This unit cooled her pool in New Orleans from 96 degrees to 87 degrees. This unit does take up a little space though and outside of buying the unit itself, it requires a couple ball valves, 2 check valves and some pipe. The typical residential unit will take a 2’X2′ slab or a 3’X3′ slab. Already Crystal Pools and Spas Inc. has installed quite a few of these units in the New Orleans area over the last 2 years. The unit does take a little fine tuning but once set you can leave it set for the duration of the summer. If you live anywhere in the New Orleans or Baton Rouge area please feel free to give Crystal Pools and Spas Inc. the chance to install your pool cooler and of course if you have any questions feel free to call or email. Thanks!
This is the most efficient way to date as far as electricity cost, to cool pool water.
