Heating Pool-update
« on: July 12, 2017, 01:51:23 PM »

The cheap exchanger on Craigslist disappeared, I ended up buying a 155K btu stainless steel pool exchanger online- $175, 2 rolls of 100' 3/4" hose, and a utility pump. 
Had a Taco 007 in the basement from a job I did, plumbed that into my OWB to run the loop to the pool exchanger, put that in a wooden case under the boiler. Put 2 unions in to disconnect and store for the winter.  2 quick disconnects for the garden hose and I am off and running. 
So far, 6 degree drop in the loop to the heat exchanger.  Raised the heat if the pool 2 degrees in an hour and a half.  Overall pleased with the whole setup.  Thanks for the ideas.  Total investment: $300.

Oh yeah.  Had a spare garden cart hanging around, that is being dedicated for hose/pump storage so I don't clutter things up when not in use.
