New Heat Pump

Postby qikrotax » Mon 20 Jun, 2022 00:27

Hi All,

I am looking for recommendations on how I should go about Installing a new Heat Pump.

I recently purchased a heat pump and I am in two minds if I should continue to keep my existing solar heating that heats pool water of the roof which is run by a separate pump and keep that separate, which will then mean I run new heat pump through filtration pump.

Or do I disconnect solar heating and connect new heat pump to the pump that was running my solar heating?

your recommendation or someone who has been in this situation would be most appreciated.

How much power does the solar pump use?
I would still use the solar where possible and the heat pump for a boost when required but you must observe the heat pump flow requirements and adjust the pool pump flow to suit, you should only pass filtered water through the heat pump.
I may not give you the answer you want to hear, but I will give an honest opinion of your situation as you decribe it.
