Clutha valley swimming pool - Otago

Clutha valley swimming pool - Otago

This is our recent pool install for Clutha valley swimming pool - Otago.


Pool got to 22 degrees in Feb. Natural ambient air temp pushed the pool temp to 22 degrees for approx 2 weeks. 

Pool was approx 18 degrees in November on install. weather initially was cool and solar did not kick in. Within 2 weeks, solar went straight to 30 degrees. 

We expect to see this temp through to April and then it will slowly taper off. 

n.b. We will keep this updated and will also ask for feed back from the Clutha team at the end of the first season.

Clutha community fund raised for this system.
