VIDEO 14. Customer Feedback
"I am delighted with the SunSpring pool heater, which I have running beside my above-ground 12' x 24' Intex pool holding 30,000 litres."
A few details for your interest:
I run the heater between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. every day. The pool heater is costing me around £50 per month to run - a pretty reasonable outlay, in my view.
I set the pool heater up on May 5th 2014. The water temperature was initially 14.5 C and within about four days it was up to 22 C. I use a solar pool cover at night and the water pipes to and from the pool are insulated with black pipe insulation.
I have attached a few pics. (zip file) which you are welcome to use on your website if you wish.

15. Water Flow Rates
Please check that your existing pump and filter will deliver the flow rate required for the SunSpring heat pump.
If your pump and filter are too small, then we sell the Krystal Clear pump and filter sets with higher flow rates to suit the SunSpring heat pumps
Please Click Here to see pricing for these pump and filter sets 16. Automatic Time Clock
If you would like to automatically turn on and off the SunSpring pool heat pumps, then we also sell heavy duty time clocks which are suitable
Note: The Sunspring heat pumps do not have a built in flow switch and so must not be allowed to operate without water flowing through the unit.
17. Pool Hose
You may need to purchase an additional length of pool hose to connect from your heat pump to the pool
We sell both 1.5" and 1.25" pool hose
18. Bypass Kit
If you do not plan to drain your pool in winter, we recommend using a bypass kit.
This allows you to isolate the heat pump and drain it down whilst keeping the water in the pool
We sell a bypass kit for above ground pools which comes complete with hosetails, short lengths of pipe and glue etc

You can easily calculate the water volume in your pool as follows:-
To calculate the volume of a round pool, you can use the formula
Pool Volume = 3.14 x radius x radius x depth
Measure the diameter of the pool in metres
Half the diameter to give the radius of the pool
Multiply 3.14 x radius x radius x pool depth
A 12' (3.66 m) diameter round above ground pool with a depth of 0.8m
Diameter = 12' x 0.305 = 3.66m
Radius = 3.66 / 2 = 1.83m
Volume = 3.14 x 1.83 x 1.83 x 0.8m = 8.4 m3
The Hot Splash supports pools up to 10m3 so would be ok for this pool
Pool volume = length x width x depth
6m x 4m pool, 0.8 m deep = 6 x 4 x 0.8 = 19.2 m3
