How can I cool my cold plunge pool?
We offer pool chillers for use with a cold plunge pool or for those who just want to extend the swim season by cooling off their pool water in the hot summer months. These pool heat pumps are a must for athletic facilities or physical therapy centers that use cold plunge pools as part of their treatment. Pool chillers have also been used in manufacturing processes where there is a need to cool water. Also, in Aquaponic facilities that grow vegetables or farm fish, pool chillers are often used. If you have questions about the use of pool chillers, please contact us.
How Do Pool Chillers Work?
Pool Chillers and Heat-Cool units have a unique reversing cycle which enables the heat pump not only to take the chill out of the water, but also to put it back in, cooling your pool water during the hot summer months!
Usually a heat pump will capture heat energy from the air with the evaporator coil. Using refrigerant and several other components, the heat is transferred over to your pool water. By reversing this process, the heat pump can actually take heat out of the water, transfer it to the Freon, and run it through the evaporator coil. The coil releases the heat into the outside air. In colder conditions, a heat pump will freeze up when the ambient air drops below approximately 45 degrees. With a heat-cool unit, the ice will melt off in a matter of minutes when in defrost mode. Standard heat pumps rely on the ambient air being drawn across the coil, which could take hours to defrost, depending on the air temperature.
