The pool water thermostat controls the pool temperature. When the desired temperature is in excess of the actual pool water temperature, a small heating circulation pump turns on and draws the water from the central heating system. This flows into the heat exchanger where it loses heat to the pool water, returning to the boiler some 4-5°C (40°F) cooler.
When the temperatures are equal or when the actual water temperature is in excess of the desired level, the heating circulating pump is turned off, the house boiler is then not cooled down and turns itself off when it reaches its running temperature. Therefore to heat the pool the following must happen:
