Heating Calculation for swimming pools


Heater is required for heating purposes at winter seasons if required take inconsideration that
it's not particle to heat the pool without covers at coldest winter months
For calculation purposes the following conditions to be considered:The recommended Pool water temperature is around 28 C deg.
Outdoor air condition
: 46 / 30 deg C DB/WB summer condition, max 122deg F (50 C)
: 6/ 10 deg C BD/WB -winter condition
From SPATA p5, Sec3, the Average Daily heat loss (DH) in KWhr / m2 of pool surface area
correction value to be used
