How a Heat Pump Works? and Why is it time to make the change?
Heat flows naturally from a higher to a lower temperature. AquaCal® heat pumps, however, are able to force the heat flow in the other direction, using a relatively small amount of high quality drive energy (electricity). AquaCal® heat pumps transfer heat from the air, to a swimming pool or spa application.
- An AquaCal® heat pump does not create heat, it simply moves heat from one place to another
- The heat that an AquaCal® heat pump works with comes from the outside air (or, with water source heat pumps, the heat source may be well water, rivers, lakes, ground loops, etc.)
- It is much less costly to move heat than to create new heat
- A heat pump allows you to heat your pool or spa economically. Depending on energy costs, an AquaCal® heat pump can save you up to 80% over propane gas, 50% to 70% over natural gas, and over 600% against electrical resistance heaters found on most spas.
Why chlorinate your pool?
You enjoy fresh clean water in your swimming pool. For the health, safety and comfort of you, your children and guests you want the most sparkling water in your swimming pool. Chlorine is the best way to sanitize water, be it drinking water or swimming water. There are many common ways to sanitize your pool with chlorine; chlorine tablets, liquid chlorine, granular chlorine and chlorine gas. The easiest and safest way is to generate your own chlorine at a constant low level.
Why a Salt Chlorine generator?
Salt is a natural element found in the earth, in our body and in our homes. It is used to season and preserve our food, rinse out contact lenses and soften our drinking water. Salt is a very economical commodity. When the ions in salt are passed over specially coated blades and induced with a low voltage electrical charge it is converted into chlorine. It is the same process that is used to convert seawater into laundry bleach. When this process is incorporated into your swimming pool you have your very own “chlorine generator”.
Why an AutoPilot Salt Chlorine generator?
