Swimming pool engineering

The pool at East Island Farmhouse has undergone numerous repairs and upgrades since we purchased the premises in 1995. These works warrant documentation, since they represent the collection of large amounts of information and practical experience.
     The most recent major upgrade (Aug. 2017) was the installation of an array of evacuated tube solar panels on the pool building roof. This heating system consists of 6 × 30 tube panels, with a peak output of 11.1 kW, and a heat-dump in case of pool curculation failure. The system appears to be working well (Feb. 2017) and will be described in an article to follow.
