Radiant heat, pex, and heating a new pool.
My house has radiant heat heat floors throughout, and they are heated using a geothermal heating system. It rocks.
Next, we want to install a pool in the backyard.
The question is: Can we use geothermal to heat the pool?
The idea is to line the floor and walls of the pool with hundreds of feet of radiant-capable pex before a final layer of concrete is put down (or vinyl?). Connect this to a geothermal unit and profit, am I right? In theory, it should heat the floor and walls of the pool the same way the floors of our home are heated.
I can't be the only person who has thought of this, but I can't find anything on the interwebs. Does anyone know where to look?
Thanks for your help. I am stumped.
