This is really a very simple matter.

Trying to access all the variables is a very complex task, so just set your pool heater to maintain a constant temperature, and record your natural gas consumption daily, along with the other relevant parameters (water temperature, air temperature and relative humidity).

You will then have a complete chart of heat loss relative to water temp, air temp and relative humidity. Make a note of average winds in the area also as this can affect heat loss as well.

Comments welcome, I am in the process of building a complete, integrated solar system for my home (pool heat, house heat and hot water, and airconditioning)

The purpose of a swimming pool heat pump is to rise the temperature of the water. The pool then can be used for swimming even on days when the weather is not perfect. The swimming pool season is extended.

Alegria is a good reseller if you want to buy a heat pump for your swimming pool (in Belgium).

Quite so. The water in a swimming pool is cooler than body temperature (unless the swimming pool is actually a hot tub) and therefore, a person in that pool will lose heat by conduction.

no you need a stronger heater specifically designed for a swimming pool

weight loss pools are smaller, normally forming a current to allow you to essentially "swim in place" while as a swimming pool is full length and can be for diving or anything else a pool is used for.

With gas, solar, electric equipment

it depends on the size and how big the people are who are going to get in the pool

First of all, you need to measure and calculate the volume of water in your pool, average daily temperature of the water, and also the surface area. Once you have accurate data, the heat loss is a simple calculation.

Because there is more particles in the swimming pool than the hot sauce pan so there is more heat energy.

the higher the temp the quicker the chlorine loss

Yes , If the Sun and the ambient temperature is hotter than the pool water

There are many ways to heat the water within an inflatable swimming pool. Ofcourse there are the standard electrical pool heaters, but often these are costly and are best for long term investment. There is a more cost effective way to heat the pool that is using a Solar Cover that goes above and covers the pool. It uses the heat of the sun to trap the heat and gradually the water in pool should become warmer.

weather and time my friend...weather and time.

'Swimming Pool', sometimes shortened to 'Pool'.

because when you enter you body heat is not released

A swimming pool can lose up to 90% of it's stored heat over night if not insulated. I'm a big fan of liquid insulators, versus taking on and off a thermal or solar cover.

There are many companies that sell reliable swimming pool heat pumps. These include Drain Systems, Deep End Pools, Rheem, Aquacal, Poolstore, among others.

There are many good things about it. One, is that it will protect your pool. Second, it helps the sun heat up the pool better.

I am not sure if the salt would cause color loss, However the chlorine can.
