Do you have any numbers on what it takes to heat 25,000 gallons of water 10-15 degrees? I assume the water is going to go into the system at 55-60 degrees. I would really like the water to be about 85 degrees when done.
The pool has a pump.
You re-rout the water to go thru a regular gas water heater.
Take a 1/8 cooper pipe and with a neddle at one end crush the end.
Remove the neddle and you have a nozzle.
Place the nozzle thru the pilot flame and the end 1/2 inch from flame.
Run the cooper line/hose to a 1 to 5 gall tank mounted 3 feet higher then the flame and with a manual valve for flow control and a fuel filter.
You put in the tank 1 - 5 gall of used motor oil/ WVO and it will get preheated in the cooper pipe right before exiting the nozzle.
It will light up from the pilot and burn like a welding torch.
The BTU for oil is much higher then natural gas or gasoline so the heat generated is awsome.
Or you can buy a complex oil heater run by electric pumps and drive the heat thru the center of a water heater.
