Pools in hot climates?

Greetings,
Hi David,

Have you ever done a pool in a hot place like southern Texas? I would like to build one, but I have many concerns. I now have the books by Michael Littlewood, I plan on buying your video when I find the money. I would like to run a couple of hundred feet of pipe in the bottom of the pool to use to keep my floors cool in the summer. I plan on using hydronic heat in the winter, so it seems a natural.

Hi Kim, no I haven't made a pool in a hot climate like Texas. I know they have been made in Australia with (probably) a similar climate so it should be possible. Unless the pool is really big, you may have issues with "dumping" the heat from the house into the pool water. If the pool gets too hot, that can lead to problems.
 
See ya later boys, I think I'm in love. Oh wait, she's just a tiny ad:
