5. 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 slightly more expensive to buy but is a lot cheap to run .
This pool has 15m3 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.
|6Kw 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)
- All Year
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 (in a colder area) please increase the size of your heat pump to compensate for the colder outside air temperatures:

7. Installation and Assembly
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.
A qualified electrician should be used to run the power supply to the pool and to make the necessary connections.
The pool can be laid on flat, level grass which has been cleared of all stones and sharp objects which could damage the liner.
Alternatively, a flat, level concrete slab can be laid to take the weight of the pool and to avoid it moving or sinking once filled with water.
Underlay is supplied with the pool which is laid under the liner to help protect it from damage
Please see the user manual for details of how to install the pool
Please ensure that you have sufficient time, labour, tools and the skill required to assemble the pool before purchasing
Please contact us if you have any queries
