How long will it take to heat my swimming pool?
Depending upon the weather, location and the system, most pools can be heated in less than 24 hours.
What is the best temperature for my pool?
Ideally, leisure pools should be 28°C (82°F), while pools used for fitness and training should be 26°C (78°F).
Why should I use a swimming pool cover?
The most effective way to prevent heat loss is to install a pool cover. An un-blanketed pool loses 2-3 times more heat than a blanketed pool. Pool covers virtually eliminate evaporation and reduce heat loss by insulating the surface of the pool and greatly reducing pool-heating costs. As with all pool heaters, Zane recommends using a pool cover at night and when the pool is not being used.
Can Turbotemp heaters be located indoors?
Yes, however this will need to be determined by an authorised plumber and also will require an additional indoor flue kit to be purchased.
How does gas heating compare with solar heating and Electroheat pool heatpump?
Fuelled by the power of the sun, solar heating systems are a low-cost, method of heating up swimming pool water
As solar heating is reliant on the sun, it is best used to extend the swimming season
Requires virtually no operating costs – just the cost of electricity to pump pool water through the solar absorber on the roof
The fastest method for heating pool and spa water
Maintains desired temperatures regardless of the weather
Highly effective but more expensive to operate
Heat pumps may not heat up the swimming pool as fast as gas heaters but they are a more energy efficient
Heat pumps require a small amount of electricity as its heat energy source is extracted from the ambient air.
