Anyone here have a pool chiller?
Worth it? Pool was 95 degrees today. Not sure how difficult they are to add after the fact.

Would also like to know this. My pool has cooling jets but it’s not enough.

I wonder if you could use the heat from the pool to heat the water in your home.

You can easily make one. Adjust your valves to maximize aeration of your water then set your pump to run mainly at night. The cooler night air will cool off your water. Over a week, I've seen as much as an 8-10 degree drop (depending on night temps.)

That pic is of one I made using 1.5" pvc that screws into my Polaris outlet. I do NOT run the booster pump because it'll spray water over the damn house.

Mine is about 60" long with probably 12 or so 1/4" holes. If I make another one, I'd make it longer with more, smaller holes to cool more water off at a time.

Fountain connected to jet

We have one of these fountains that has a hose connected to the jets. It really helps to cool the water off.

Yep, a fountain and running it at night will help big time.

Doing this works but just be aware you need to keep a closer eye on your ph because aerating the water will affect it more.

That's good to know. I have four deck jets that I never use. I will start running them at night with the pump on(I usually kill it at midnight) and see if it helps.

Best advice in this thread is to monitor you PH when you're aerating the water overnight. It can get out of hand quickly. Just keep some muriatic acid handy and you'll be fine. It doesn't take much of very long to get it down.

I have one and it is definitely worth it. Shop for solar water heaters. The panels of the system are nothing more than heat exchangers.

Run the system in the daytime (in fall and winter) and add heat to the pool.
Run the system at night (in the summer) and the "solar" panels will dissipate the heat from the pool into the atmosphere (yes, yoiu will be accused of adding to global warning).

Have Salt Water so PH is always running high. Usually have cases of Acid on hand.

Yes, but it came with pool when we purchased the house. Once you get it regulated on how much water coming into the unit vs going out of the unit it’s pretty amazing
