What Do Our Geothermal Pool Heating Systems Look Like in Action?

Our team recently installed a large geothermal pool heating system at Eagle Lakes Community Park, and we’re going to give you a quick peek at the system today.
You can follow along in the video above to see Mike Jaques, one of our team members, walk through the systems and explain how they work.
The systems we installed are heating not one, but four different pools at the park: the lap pool, family pool, slide tower, and wading pool.
The lap pool is being heated with two PH 215 units. These large-model heaters provide a better carbon footprint than using several smaller units when it comes to heating and cooling larger pools. The PH 215 puts out 215,000 BTUs and has two heat exchangers within the unit.
Another unit featured in our video is the PH 90—a smaller system that puts out 90,000 BTUs and has one heat exchanger per pool. This system is designed to heat smaller pools, which is why we’ve decided to use it in conjunction with the PH 215 units we described earlier. It’s sometimes necessary for us to mix and match various units within a pool heating system to achieve the most efficient solution for a project.
Now that we’ve covered the units we used for this project, you may be wondering how they work.
There are three main components to a pool heater: the pool water coil, the source water coil, and the freon system. Using these components, water is pumped out of the pool, through the geothermal units’ heaters, and then pumped back in.
Pool heating systems also use closed-loop, lake, and aquifer well source water, which is moved constantly throughout the heaters. In the case of the system we’re showing you today, we used aquifer well source water.
Heaters will automatically sense and send signals to a component called the Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) when source water is needed.
I hope this information, along with the walkthrough tour of the system featured in the video above, has given you a better idea of how geothermal pool heating works and why it’s such an effective solution.
