Heating the Pool FAQ

Posted by: Garret Pick on Thu, Apr 26, 2007

List of frequently asked questions as presented at the 2007 annual meeting

Please see the PDF attachment below.  Prepared by Kristi Lundell.

 

SOLAR QUESTIONS

 

1. Why heat the pool?

The #1 comment to past president Colleen O’Handley is that the pool is too cold, that

more residents would use the pool if it were warmer. According to experts, you want

your pool to heat 3 degrees warmer than ambient temperature. This is enough for an

average person to feel comfortable.

2. Solar vs. electric:

Cost! To install electric heat pumps would require 2 pumps and total cost to install

would be $15-20,000. The electricity bill will run us approximately $200-300 per month.

This is without the heat pumps running continuously, just maintaining a comfortable

temperature. They are programmed to switch on when the temperature drops ½ degree.

3. Can we afford to heat the pool?

Yes. In November 2006 several members of the board did a walk-through of the club to

determine what projects/repairs would need to take place in the next 4 years. The biggest

projects were replacing the BBQ area, replacing fence posts, changing partitions in the

bathrooms and other small projects. As of September 2006, the MCBCA has $155,000 in

cash reserves. Solar installation will run us about $21,000.

4. How much can we expect the temperature to increase with solar heating?

7-10 degrees. This will vary depending on wind and weather. The sizing of the panels

vs. pool size is 100% which should give us a good increase in temperature (typically it is

75%). A controller will keep the pool from getting too warm.

5. Any issues with the panels being on the grassy area? Can they go right on the

grass or do we need to build a structure?

Our roof is too small and fragile for the panels, therefore panels need to be put on the side

grassy area. We may have to tear down fence/several bushes to make room. Black tarp

will need to be laid down and secured to ensure that grass doesn’t grow through panels.

There may be a little shade from trees at certain times of the day/during certain times of

the year.

6. What is the cost for building a fence to secure panels?

Peter Melnyk may be able to help with the gate. An e-mail request was sent to him on

2/20/07. A voicemail was left for him on 4/13/07.

7. Does this change maintenance issues with the pool?

Yes. Joe will need to learn to maintain a pool with higher water temperature.

8. Warrantee is for 10 years, what happens after that?

There is no warrantee longer than 10 years offered. There may be a program after 10

years that can be discussed with Andre at Solar Giant at a future date.

9. Typically how long do these panels last?

20-30 years.

10. Do we qualify for the state tax credit?

No, this credit is for home use only.

11. Has this company installed solar heating for any other recreation center?

No but they have done many residential homes and can provide references. We

selected them after asking for three bids. They were both responsive and competitive.

12. How does having panels on the grass affect our insurance?

It shouldn’t create a need for more insurance. Currently we have a blanket coverage for

the entire facility and grounds. We have $403,200 for the structure, which would include

solar panels. Vandalism is covered. We also have insurance for bodily injury at

$1,000,000. Note: no vandalism to the bay club has been reported for as long as Joe has

been around. There was one incident of graffiti near the boat harbor.
