These pump/filtration/treatment/cooling/heating setup pics are like porn for me

Evaporative cooling style of chiller, think swamp cooler.  Really a great and cost effective option but customer service/warranty for this company is seriously lacking. Don’t know why I don’t have any pics of them fully installed but here a couple different ones from during the install process.

This property had an outdoor pool & spa in addition to what they have inside.  Basement houses the garage, gym, indoor virtual driving range, and a spa complete with hot & cold plunges.  Being in the basement in addition to HVAC heat pump cooling abilities, the plunge is kept at 40°.

Good friend’s parents had a 25ish foot above ground pool that was awesome

Beginning of pandemic neighbor got a 10 foot diameter temporary pool that is about 4 feet deep. Kids love it, has a little filter. Also awesome

Pools are great, especially when it is hot.  My personal pool is a 1000 gallon poly stock tank with some pretty heavy duty equipment considering.  It is refreshing to get into and that is all you really need in a pool.

This unit does not use a condensing coil or create vapor.  It is rain curtain over a baffle with a strong fan cooling the rainfall water.  It fills the basin and then gets sent back to mix with the pool water via the plumbing.  No vapor is created.  The true HVAC style chillers/heat pumps would seem to pose a greater risk for such than this.  But I am not an expert on that subject.

Nothing much other than it is indeed a pizza oven.  Their outdoor kitchen is ridic.  This is my favorite item in their kitchen, followed closely by the pizza oven.

Hmm, that does make much sense, the heat that is being rejected has to go somewhere. I suspect it operates like a smaller version of a cooling tower. The warmer water flows down over the top of an evaporative media, a fan draws air through that media in the opposite direction. The air picks up the heat from the water, so hot air gets blown out the top and colder water goes down to the basin where it gets pumped out. I suspect you will find that hot air gets blown out of the top of that thing.

Just as susceptible to legionella as a cooling tower, but maybe the chemicals used in a pool are good at preventing that from happening. Now I’m curious and I’m going to fixate on this until I read up on it.

For anyone who read all that and needs PDHs just dm me your email I will be sending out certificates this afternoon

The fan is at the top and is where the air is drawn in.  Air escapes out the side where the removable covers are.

To expound a little further BAC, it would appear to put a pool at as much risk of legionella as a waterfall, rockfall, or spa overflow would.  Its general concept is to create a lot more surface area, via the baffles, to allow for more water air mixture and then utilizing a fan and baffles made of a material that is easy to cool to lower water temperature and mix in with pool.  It becomes a very inefficient unit on really humid days as the fan can barely cool the moisture rich air.

Idk but I am hoping what that video is not showing is the sizable investment he made in order to rectify the humidity in his basement now.  That will eventually bring down a house if not done correctly.

I've been thinking about building my own plunge pool.  Probably 15 feet long by about 8 feet wide with a bench formed into one side.  Would make it where the water is chest deep whether you are standing or sitting on the bench.  I have a kickass concrete guy that can pour it.  I just need to figure out the equipment side of the equation.  Was definitely thinking about a heat pump of some sort to heat/cool water.  We got into something like this in Vegas at the Vdara and it was pretty awesome.

I will sign the lien waiver when I get the check.  We have discussed this numerous times, bringing our laundry public will not get me to waive the lien until I am paid.
