Install Pool Heating | Pool Heated Throughout the Year
Many people are already familiar with the benefits of using heat pump technology to keep swimming pools heated throughout the year. By using this technology, you harness the power of the environment to keep your pool at a comfortable temperature all throughout the different seasons of the year. This can add many more months of enjoyment of your pool, where it would otherwise be netted up and waiting for summer to come around again.
Installing your pool’s heat pump is a fairly straight forward task and can be completed in one day. The manufacturer’s installation recommendations will form the backbone of the installation, as this also helps to avoid invalidating the warranty or preventing the pump from working as expected. If you would like to learn more about installing pool heating, take these tips into account.
The Best Location
The installer will search for the best location for the heat pump, where it can access a good flow of air. Optimum performance and efficiency of the heat pump is greatly dependent on good air flow. Wherever possible, the heat pump should always be installed outdoors, thus maximising its exposure to good supplies of air at all times. This makes it easier for the pump to extract heat from the air.
Heat Pump and Pool Pump Distance
If for whatever reason the heat pump cannot be installed outside, and needs to be installed inside a pump house, the heat pump should be situated as close to the pool pump as possible, in order to minimise friction in the pipes. Should the pipe run be too long, you might sit with an insufficient water flow rate through the heat pump.
Water Flow Rate
Pool heat pumps state the necessary water flow rate for it to operate optimally. Should the water flow rate be too low, then the water in the heat pump overheats, leading to the heat pump switching off. There is also a maximum possible flow rate through each size of pool pipe, irrespective of the power of the pump.
