6. Heating the pool
If you are looking to heat your pool, you have the choice of two options:
- Electric Heater which is cheap to buy but expensive to run
- Heat Pump which is cheap to run but slightly more expensive to buy.
This pool has 49m3 of water so these heating options will be ideal:
1/ Electric Heater which is cheap to buy but expensive to run and will heat your pool all year long.
You will achieve 1 Kw of heat output into the water for every 1 Kw of power used from your supply. So works out a lot more expensive to run than the Heat pump option.
|18Kw Elecro Evolution Electric Pool Heater,|
(Must be kept Indoors or in Plant Housing)
2/ If you are looking to use a Heat Pump to keep the running cost down then you have to decide which months of the year you want to swim:
Summer (May – Sep)
Extended Season (Apr – Oct)
Once you have decided this you can than look to see which heat pump is the best one for you. Now this will vary depending on the pool’s location in the country as the outside air temperature is drastically different in Scotland from Cornwall’s air temperatures (taking into account the worst temperatures at night and the coldest parts of the period you choose).
We can help size the correct unit for you to ensure you achieve the desired water temperature (normal temp for this pool is 28 degrees, and it should not be heated over 30 degrees as this reduces the life span of the liner).
As a rough guide for this pool we have added some options at the top of this listing for you, but here is a explanation to the season to expect from each. Please bear in mind that you can never over size a heat pump but the results of under sizing it will mean you will not have the water temperature you require for the period you want. In addition to this, if you are further up North please increase the size of your heat pump to compensate for the colder outside air temperatures:

7. Installation and Assembly
Please read and follow all instructions supplied with the pool & all equipment. Extra equipment purchased may require professional installation. Please call us with any questions.
A qualified electrician should be used to run the power supply to the pool and to make the necessary connections.
It is recommended that the filtration equipment unless housed in the (Wooden Pool filtration Enclosure as listed on the optional extras) is at least 3.5m from the pool.
The pipework kit included with the filtration kit should be sufficient to achieve this. If you are planing to install the flow equipment further away more pipework may be needed.
Also a Bypass system may be needed for installing a heater which is also available on our sister website.
A smooth concrete slab is the best base for a wooden pool. Speak to a trusted local builder for advice on your specific placement area. Failure to set up the pool flat and on compact level ground could result in the pool’s collapse or injury to users.
The pool can be assembled by most competent DIY installers, or the customer can choose to use a local carpenter or handy-man to assemble the pool.
However we do have some engineers across the country that we may be able to recommend, please give us your full address for us to take a look for a recommendations for you in your area.
You can fit it above ground, below ground or partially in-ground – whatever suits your needs. You can choose to fit the wooden pool yourself or have a local expert do some or all of it for you, the choice is yours. We would recommend that you are reasonably experienced at self-build if you intend to install it yourself.
