Solar Thermal application for heating indoor pools

About six months ago we did the start up of a solar thermal system to heat our indoor lap pool, leisure pool, and domestic hot water for showers.  The solar system is in addition to natural gas boilers.  The system is very sophisticated, has 100 4'x10' panels, and its own website for monitoring energy usage and controlling the system.  The reason for getting the system was to cut down on our monthly gas bills and was to be mostly paid for by grants.  During the initial planning it was…See More

http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/parenting/drowning-looks-different-than-you-think-2010225/ It is nice that this article from Yahoo! is sharing this information with the non-aquatics professional.  While we aquatics people understand the IDR, this may help educate a larger audience.  Thank you Yahoo!See More

"Ray, it was a blast. We had about 300 children and their parents from 0 - 10 years old in depth 0'0" to 12'0". Maybe it time for your town to lobby for shallow water and 6 foot tall rabbits!"

My staff got the idea from a workshop (some Canada pool).

It was so much fun and easy!

We required registration ($5.00) per child, parents were free. Put the pumpkins in the pool (after a quick scrub), and the kids got 20 minutes to swim and bob for there choice pumpkin.

Age group 0-4 was our most popular!

We had the pumpkin donated by a local farmer.
We marked the pumpkin and gave away prizes (like free swims) to some of the participants.
We did three age groups 0-4, 5-7 and 8 and up for the older kids we put bigger pumpkins in.

Lots of laughs!
