Florida Gulf Coast University - Ft. Myers
Project: GeoThermal Pool Heating and Cooling
Florida Gulf Coast University Aquatic Center, located in Lee County, Florida, near Fort Myers, features a state-of-the-art stainless steel 50-meter Competition Pool and adjacent Diving Pool built by Weller Pool Constructors, Inc. in 2004.
The 670,700-gallon 50-meter competition pool is heated and cooled to 84 °F winter and summer by five (5) Symbiont Model PHH-250-RV Geo-Thermal Heat Pumps, extracting heat from, or rejecting heat into, one common 200′ deep aquifer supply well and returning the water to a second 200′ deep aquifer well located several hundred feet away.
The 329,625 gallon Dive Pool is heated and cooled to 82 °F winter and summer by two (2) Symbiont Model PHH-250-RV Geo-Thermal Heat Pumps, which also extract heat from, or reject heat into, the common 200′ deep aquifer supply well and return it to the second well.
Symbiont Service Corp’s engineering department projects operational savings of approximately $75,000 annually with the 20-year life Symbiont systems over conventional gas heaters, with very little adverse affect on the environment.
