Pool Chiller – A Must-Have for a Swimming Pool

In Pool Features by Platinum Pools

Never think that just because you do not have a pool heater, the water in your pool is naturally cool… that is an absolute myth!  If your pool is exposed to the Texas sun, the water will likely be warm in the summer, especially if you have a darker-colored plaster.  Hello, we are talking about swimming pools here, not spas.  That’s why it’s crucial to have a pool chiller at your pool during the hot Texas summer.  Here are some of the benefits of having a pool chiller:

Energy Efficient

They remain relatively efficient even in high humidity and heat. 

More Benefits of Why you Should get a Pool Chiller

Pool chillers not only refresh the water in the summer, but it’s also easier to maintain the chemical levels of the pool water.  For example, if the temperature drops by 10˚F (say, from 90˚ to 80˚), that can save up to 20-25% in chemicals.

The Pool Chiller’s Job is to Keep the Pool Refreshing

If you are wondering how a pool chiller works, it’s simple.  Airflow dissipates the heat as water goes through the system, and the water is pumped back into the pool.  Imagine how comfortable it is to swim in your oasis on a hot Texas day when you have a chilled pool.

Remember, Pebble, Quartz, Tile, and Dark Surfaces Need to be Cooled!

Yes, you read that right!  The pool water may be less cool if any of the materials listed are on the pool inlay.  It is best to buy a chiller, especially for the hot humid summertime.  Make sure to purchase a chiller that is the right size for your residential oasis that will lower the water temperature by ten to fifteen degrees in an efficient time frame.

Buy a Chiller (Especially if you Have an Automatic Cover for Your Pool)!

Although most pool owners in Texas do not close their pools, there may be an exception to the local majority.  Pool covers are great for keeping debris away from your pool water, but they can lead to your pool heating up with temperatures in the 80s to 90s. If your oasis gets plenty of sunlight, we highly recommend a chiller.
