Designing The Right Pool For You

Recent worrying trends to popular computer games and related activities are reducing interaction with family and friends. The inclusion of a pool or spa is a fabulous way to encourage regular interactions with both friends and family so when you are considering a pool or spa you must be sure careful consideration is given to ensure the design takes into account the landscape and entertaining areas. Any project of this nature is a large investment so it is critical to get it right.

Key Factors to Consider
Position the pool or spa to aim for 60-70% of sunshine, leaving time to get respite from the sun during seasonal change of the suns path.
Place your pool for the best aesthetic position and to give any water feature or other feature, prime location.
What size of your pool & shape, location of entry to pool or spa?
Consider the number & age of the users, what do you intend using the pool for? exercise, entertaining, cooling off, games?? The shape of the pool should be reflective of the home design.
Don’t forget about traffic at the gate & into the pool. Also the location of tables & chairs needs to be considered when locating the fence & gate and the steps into the pool.
Also, people often overlook the choice of fresh or salt water and chlorine injection because you need to take into account allergies or irritations.

A Pool?… Or a Spa?
This is often dictated by the area although time to maintain is another factor. Ease & cost of heating a spa in a short time is more recently swinging clients to heated spas, or swim spas; their high pressure jets to swim against will allow swimming in a far smaller area. Spas are more oftenly used all year round, where pools have 8-9 month use with seasonal effects.

The most important thing to consider is planning, take into account the issues mentioned about and make notes of any site specific issues that need to be considered.

Next set a budget to complete the project. Then make an appointment to come and see the friendly staff at Lifestyle Soutions Centre so a project can be designed to the budget that is appropriate for your scope of works.

Call and make an appointment to discuss your project today,  we are available to make time for you, even after office hours. If you need all our contact details, just view them on our http://www.lifestylesolutions.com.au

6 ways to get the most from Solar Pool heating..bundaberg

6 Ways to get the most from Solar Pool heating… in Bundaberg.

Zane Solar collector near Solar Hot water system

1/   Check the lint filter which will be installed in line near the pool pump as this will effect to flow to the Solar Collectors on the roof. Just unscrew the end and pull out the stainless steel gauze filter , then wash off with a hose. Without this filter your solar collector will block and cause further problems.

2/  Check the top out temperature which determines the targeted temperature for the system…if this is set too low the system will not achieve the maximum heat transfer. Raise this temperature to 28 degrees and your heating system will operate until you reach the higher temp.

3/  Check the collector on the roof to see how dusty it is… grab a soft broom and a hose and give it a clean down so you get the most from the available heat.

4/  Install a pool blanket and go for the better quality ones to both retain most heat and absorb extra heat.. often up to 3-4 degrees, with some manufacturers claiming more this is on the conservative side.

5/  Check for overhanging branches both on the pool and over the roof where the collector is installed to remove potential shade and there fore heat transfer…in short trim them up out of the way.. more sunlight, more heat. Sometimes when this is not possible and the system becomes less efficient adding a small heat pump may be the only solution when you want to extend your swimming season.

6/   When you are serious about extending you swimming season look at installing more collector to get the most form the system… using  the existing circulation system then adding collector will be FREE heating as its cost no more than you are already paying.

These are some of the best ways to improve the efficiency of your existing Solar Pool heating system. When you want more heat in your pool consider adding a heatpump which are becoming far more affordable. Use the FREE heat you get from the Solar then adding a heat pump will allow you to swim 365 days a year especially when there is no sunlight.  This will minimise the normal costs that would be involved with Heat Pump only installations.

Zane Solar Centre Bundaberg is Located at Lifestyle Solutions Centre 78 Mt Perry Road, Nth Bundaberg. When you have some questions about how you can heat your pool, call us or drop by to discuss your particular situation.
