6. Built in Water Flow Switch

The Thermotec Penguin Reversible has a built in water flow switch.

The water flow switch automatically shuts down the heat pump when there is no (or insufficient) water flow and re-starts it when sufficient water flow is resumed.

This allows the Thermotec Penguin to be used in conjunction with a time clock on the pool circulation pump.

When the circulation pump turns off, the Thermotec Penguin will shut down and when the circulation pump re-starts, the Thermotec Penguin will also re-start.

7.  What size heat pump do I require for my pool?

How to Calculate Your pool Water Volume:

You can easily calculate the water volume in your pool as follows: –

Round Pools

To calculate the volume of a round pool, you can use the formula

Pool Volume = 3.14 x radius x radius x depth

  1. Measure the diameter of the pool in metres
  2. Half the diameter to give the radius of the pool
  3. Multiply 3.14 x radius x radius x pool depth

Example

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 Penguin Reversible supports pools up to 12m3 so this heat pump will be ok for this pool

Note: These sizing’s assume that the pool will be covered with a solar cover when not in use. All pools should have solar covers.

Rectangular Pools

Pool volume = length x width x depth

Example

6m x 4m pool, 0.8 m deep = 6 x 4 x 0.8 = 19.2 m3

Maximum for Penguin Reversible = 12m3 so this heat pump is too small – please look at our SunSpring or Thermotec Eco Fun heat pumps.

Typical Pool Sizes and Volumes

8′ x 30″ Intex above Ground pool = 3.6 m3 – Thermotec Penguin  Reversible 5kw OK !

10′ x 30″ Intex above Ground pool = 5.5m3 – Thermotec Penguin Reversible 5kw OK !

12′ x 36″ Intex above Ground pool = 9.6 m3 – Thermotec Penguin Reversible 5kw OK !

 

The sizing guide for an above-ground covered pool is:-

Model Kw Max Pool Volume

(Warmer areas in the UK)

Max Pool Volume

(Colder areas in the UK)

Absolute Max Pool Volume
(Hotter Climates – Europe)
Penguin Reversible 5kw Heat Pump 5kw 12m3
10m3
15m3

 

Please note that these sizes are based on summer use (May-Sep) to ensure that you maintain a good water temperature as long as you cover the pool with the solar cover for as many hours a day as possible (max 4 hours uncovered). The colder the outside air temperature (including night temperatures as this is the coldest time where you will lose most heat) the larger the heat pump size you will need (kw).

Please call us if you are unsure of the size of heat pump required for your pool

10. Installation

thermotec-penguin-mini-pool-heat-pump

Installation is very easy and straightforward.

The Thermotec Penguin is connected to your existing pool pipework

It uses the existing pool circulation pump to pump the pool water through it.

Please see the user manual under the product literature tab at the top of the page, for more information on how to install your Thermotec Penguin heat pump

8. Savings

Using the Thermotec Penguin heat pump to heat your pool rather than an electric heater will save you money on running costs

The Thermotec Penguin only uses 0.98kw of electricity to produce 5kw of pool heat.

If you compare this with an electric pool heater, a 5kw electric pool heater would use 5kw of electricity

The Thermotec Penguin therefore is only less than 1/4 the running cost of an electric pool heater – saving you money!

9. 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
