    Love my geothermal heat pump. Super efficient (so far)

    Hybrids are great. I have NG, which is crazy cheap now, but of course that can change. Probably in the near future i will need to be looking at this closer as the HVAC in the house was probably installed 10 years ago.

    We have a hybrid system with a heat pump and propane backup. Propane kicks in when it gets too cold for heat pump. Had to replace the outside unit a few years back because it blew up, of course, shortly after warranty expired. Was about $7k to replace, but ended up being a more efficient model.

    We had a 30' round and the solar cover was huge. I ended up cutting it in 3 pieces so I could manage it easier. I'd only put it on for the first week or so to warm the water and then only put it on when we'd go on vacation for a week to keep the big crap out of the pool, since nobody would be there to clean the skimmer basket. When we'd get back the water would typically be in the 90's. I also had a couple of black floating puzzle pieces that I'd throw in to warm the water a little when it would get too cold for the kid when he was little.

    Kinda depends if you have to replace the air handler as well. Lots of people will tell you that you have to replace both, but its not always the case. Unless you have someone you really trust, get a couple different quotes/opinions. Research what people want to sell you as well. There are "RTM" systems, and then there are really good systems. Inverters and multi stage equipment are where efficiency is as. Heat pumps arent a bad way to go either. with oil heat i would take a good look at them. With gas at its current price, it might not be as enticing. I'm a huge fan of heat pumps. They have come a long way.

    Not hard to get off and on at all. They do sell roller things you can attach on your pool to make it easier to get off and on. My only worry, if small children around and they got in the pool could become trapped under the cover. Funny you open your pool in April. We did the same when our kids were young, and yes, they swam when it was like 65 degrees out.

    4th of July is my annual pool day. Other than that, I never get in the pool. More of a couch and AC guy

    Why wouldn’t anybody. Office manager said the same thing to me earlier. $5-$10k is like a year of Uber’s and bar tabs.

    I did both my AC and furnace at the same time a few years ago and I want to say that it was in the neighborhood of 10k with a few add ons and higher efficiency units.

    They’re fairly easy to get on and off, especially if it’s a reel-type. They work very well though. Pool was 69 on Saturday, put the cover on Saturday night and it went up 6 degrees on Sunday alone. Usually, we put ours back in “storage” by June because it’s not really needed too much after the first few weeks of using it.

    Just found out today that I need to replace my central AC unit. Hooray. Anyone done this lately? What am I looking at, $5-10 grand? I'm about to fucking move into a hotel like GSS, I swear to god.

    Seriously, WTF is with this Weather?

    I’ve been thinking about getting one but have always been skeptical that they actually work. I opened my pool a month ago and up until last week it was in the 60s. Didn’t stop my girls from jumping in. Sunday it was in the low 70s and felt good after doing yard work most of the day. Are they much trouble getting on and off? We’re in it just about every night after practice during the summer.

    I am aware. It’s alot easier to say salt water pool than electrolysis chlorinated pool. At the end of the day, it’s better for your skin, doesn’t stain swim clothing or hair, and doesn’t smell. It’s also a lot less maintenance and way less expensive.
