Your gas pool heater should have a BTU/hr rating for input and output printed on a placard somewhere on the heater. Look for the input rating and divide by 100,000 to get Therms/hr. Assuming your gas is being billed in dollars per Therm, just multiply that rate by your Therms/hr. to get dollars/hour. Multiply this by how many hours you run your gas heater and that's your total pool heater operating cost.

Also take in account the time of year temp and wind. If your heating your pool to 78-85 degrees and your pool water is 60 degrees that would be an 18-25 degree temp rise. Your pool is exposed on all sides and this will bleed heat off quickly. It may never achieve the temp desired or not shut down and always call for heat.

There are many factors that determine the daily fluctuation of air temperature just above the ground. One factor is the wind.

It should be sufficient thru most of the year. You might want to check out any of the heater manufacturers sites for heater size calculations starting with the brand you have or have in mind or call them. By the way, heaters are not classified as either in ground or above ground -- the heaters do not know the difference. K

Is this an above ground pool or an inground pool? The type of pool you have will determine the best way to answer your question.

initial velocity, angle of launch, height above ground When a projectile is launched you can calculate how far it travels horizontally if you know the height above ground it was launched from, initial velocity and the angle it was launched at. 1) Determine how long it will be in the air based on how far it has to fall (this is why you need the height above ground). 2) Use your initial velocity to determine the horizontal component of velocity 3) distance travelled horizontally = time in air (part 1) x horizontal velocity (part 2)
