How do you cool down a large 120-degree swimming pool during a hot summer in Arizona?
There is a company in Palm Desert which, I think, is called Pool
Cool specializing in just that .
Ken Glacier Pool Coolers is the innovator of a system that cools
hot swimming pools in a matter of hours. The Arizona desert packs a
punch in the summer heating pools to the 90's and even the 100's.
This system is actually installed much like a pump or heater in the
equipment area and cools the water which enters the pool through
the plumbing...cool water comes right through the jets. Depending
on the length of time this system runs, a 96 degree pool can be
cooled to the low 80's in a matter of hours. It cools by an
electric fan and is not a heat pump...no BTU's. It runs on
electricity, and very little I might add. There are sizes to
accomodate residential pools all the way to huge commercial pools,
and the bigger the pool, the more savings an owner will see in
Chemical usage. Reduction in temperature by 10 degrees will save
hundreds of dollars in chemicals in just one summer season. Glacier
Pool Coolers are available at all Leslie's Pool Supply stores as
well as many online malls, Ace Hardwares, and various pool dealers
across the country.
