Pool is only 4' x 12 or mabye 14? It's one of those cheap metal frame pools. We got a nice way oversized pump with sand filter and the thing stays super clean. We take it down in the fall and put it back up in the spring. We dont have natural gas here but do have propane. We only use it for heat in the winter and that is to fire a rinnai heater as our only source of heat. My shop is fired by k1 as is my greenhouse but that is on an as needed basis. Dont heat the greenhouse all winter, only for wreath making season and now for seed season, and the shop is heated by a miller trailer furnace that I turn on when i go to use it. Shop is only 24x24 so the 80k hot air furnace heats her up to 55 in 25 minutes or so on 0 degree days. Burn around 5 or so gallons a week in the winter months. The pool is another hobby so we will work to try and keep it warm. Dont want to add to our heat bill and have a ton of downed trees on the property that need cleaning up so I will cut and split I guess. I have a gas wood splitter but I just purchased an electric splitter that will work great for all the pine and my wife can use it no problem. The gas job is good for big stuff and can be a little intimidating for her. Went for a walk the other day and have at least 4 or 5 cords of blow downs I can get with my wheeler and trailer. Maine life is kinda like this. I enjoy the struggle and hard work to get things done. The company I work for slows down in the winter and we harvest oak from my bosses property and mostly hand split 20 cord to fit in this shed. It is four layers deep. Maine is a cool place. Life slows down in the cold months and then we work hard to try and relax in the warm months so this heater will help I hope.
