The pool isn't that big - a 24' round above ground. I forget the rating of the heat pump - I'll look it up tonight at home if I remember. In the same way that our boat usage went up dramatically when switching from a trailer to a slip, the pool usage went way up as well. Since I leave the thermostat set at 82 degrees, the season starts earlier and my wife doesn't have to worry on a sunny day if the water is warm enough. As a result she not only uses it more at the beginning and end of the season, but takes the temp for granted even in the middle of the season. When we heard that the weather was going to be nice for a whole week, she planned on using the pool all week, and the water temp never factored into the decision.
