Heat Pump – Why have a heated pool.

A few facts to consider…

The northern costa Blanca enjoys some 300 days of sunshine on average every year (according to the World Health Organisation).

A swimming pool who’s’ water temperature is less than 25 degrees is not providing a luxurious environment.

Natural heat is provided by the sun. Although the longest day of the year is June 21st the fact remains that the water does not normally reach 25 degrees until mid-June. The Spanish phrase is that summer starts on May 40th, in other words June 10th, (Click here for further details) - this is when the real summer calm hot conditions really take a hold. Of course, this then leads into the really hot July & August periods.

Swimming pool water will naturally reach 25 to 32 degrees (dependant on height above sea level, prevailing wind, and direct sunlight hours on the water).

We can conclude that the swimming season without heating will reliably last from Mid-June till end of August, which is on average less than 90 of those 300 days.

A heated pool can easily and efficiently reach 27 degrees from April till November. More powerful and efficient heating will enable the pool water to remain at such temperatures virtually all year around.

During shoulder season months (April till June, September till November) it is very normal for terrace temperatures, in direct sunlight, to be greater than 25 degrees, whilst pool temperatures will be between 12 or a maximum of 20 degrees. Very pleasant outside temperatures, with horrible unusable pool temperatures – unless they are heated.

Owners of beautiful homes in the northern costa Blanca who are permanent residents can now luxuriate in their beautiful pools whenever the sun is out.

Likewise, owners who typically avoid the really hot months of July & August and prefer the “cooler” shoulder seasons can now also luxuriate in their pools as if it were still mid-summer.

The swimming pool is the ideal place to relax unwind and enjoy gently exercise. Many residents choose the costa Blanca because of its enormous wealth of health benefits. The swimming pool is complementary in allowing arthritic joints weight bearing movement. The many benefits of swimming are all well known, all this in a private heated, healthy pool is now an easily achievable reality.

Here is how to create this perfect reality…


Saves energy, money and time

Heatsvr LogoAs part of their ongoing quest to provide excellent service combined with value for money, Your Piscina Care have been appointed the sole distributor of HeatsavrTM, an amazing product that offers a new level of economy for pool owners.

HeatsavrTM is a liquid pool blanket that covers the entire surface of the pool water when applied. When it is added to your pool, it creates a liquid barrier between the water and the air, which helps to reduce the rate of evaporation. It is invisible, tasteless and odourless and bathers will not be able to detect its presence. In addition, if your pool is heated, Heatsavr™ will help keep the heat generated by your heater in your pool, so that you don't have so spend as much money keeping your water up to temperature.

HeatsavrTM is a patented formula and is fully biodegradable, forming carbon dioxide, oxygen and water. The molecular size of the liquid pool cover is so small it was flow right through even the best filter media on the market, and simply work its way through the circulation system until it returns to the main body of water, thereforeit will not affect any of your pool equipment.

Heatsvr Hand LogoHeatsavrTM has been fully tested and undergone numerous independent trials, including toxicology and energy saving assessments. The product has been found to be completely safe for bathers, have no effect on the chemistry of the pool water and to offer genuine energy saving benefits. It has been sold in the UK market since 2003 and is rapidly gaining popularity across Europe.

HeatsavrTM is dosed once a day, normally at night when the pool is empty. The carrier within the product evaporates within 30 minutes leaving an invisible mono-layer on the surface of the pool water. The molecules will be separated once the water is disturbed but quickly reform once settled. HeatsavrTM can be hand dosed but should ideally be automatically dosed to ensure an even and consistent coverage.

Financial savings with HeatsavrTM are greatest at night but daytime savings can also be enjoyed, even when bathers are present in the pool. It is the ideal solution for pools where periods of downtime during the day are common. HeatsavrTM can also be used in conjunction with a traditional pool cover to ensure 100% coverage of the pool’s surface.

On an outdoor pool, HeatsavrTM works like a conventional solar blanket and savings relate directly to reduced evaporation and hence pool water heat loss. Since the average outdoor pool loses approximately 70% of its heat to evaporation, Heatsavr™ helps maintain the water temperature in any pool, saving heat, water and money to keep a pool's heater running.

On an indoor pool, in addition to savings on water heating and water loss, HeatsavrTM also reduces the overall energy usage related to dehumidification and air handling. Every pool experiences evaporation, whether indoors or outside. That evaporation causes your pool to lose heat and water, and it results in higher humidity levels, because of the water vaporising into the surrounding air.

An Overview:


Typically, an outdoor pool in the northern Costa Blanca will only reach temperatures of 25 degrees (c) or more for approx. 60 days per year (Mid-June till latter part of August). 


Only the brave will want to swim in water less than 25 degrees (c) – most people will generally consider the luxury aspect of a pool to be at a temperature of 27 degrees (c) which is the temperature of an indoor leisure centre.


For so many owners who are non-resident and away during the hottest periods of the year, being unable to enjoy their luxury private pool in the glorious shoulder seasons, a heated pool is the only answer.


In the northern Costa Blanca it is normal for us to enjoy hot sunshine on the pool terrace from March through to Christmas, but outside of the typical summer season the water temperature will have dropped to icy temperatures of around 10 degrees (c) or less – Ouch!


The Possibilities:


A heated pool will easily operate at 27 degrees (c) (or more if you choose) from March till December - that's at least extending the swimming season by six months. It is not unusual to swim in 27 degrees (c) in December and therefore only close the pool in January & February, these being the coldest months of the year.



Heating a pool requires thought and consideration... 


  1. Heating potential – Heat Pump power – How many months of the year.
  2. The electrical power required – plant room power potential – overall power available – is an upgrade required.
  3. Economy and Efficiency.
  4. Hygiene requirements.
  5. Heat Cover – Prevention of heat loss and Evaporation.
  6. Practical installation – Integration with existing plant room equipment.
  7. Location survey – water volume – pool altitude – pool type.



Survey and Integration:


A site survey is critical in determining all the above. From which point it becomes possible to specify the required equipment to meet the objectives.


A successfully heated pool requires all the equipment to work in harmony with each other. Just like customising a car, just bolting on a formula one turbo charger does not make a ford fiesta a racing car!
