In response to Re: Exercise Pool & room heat
You do not want to circulate the pool water through a copper heating system so anything you create will have to be done with PVC pipes and that is an inefficient material for heating purposes.

: Building a 16 x 28 room around an 8 x 19 exercise pool to be kept at 92 degrees but covered when not in use. Considering a 150,000 btu LP pool heater. Could the pool water be circulated under ceramic tile to also heat the room in Iowa? Can only have 1.5" above the 3/4" treated plywood subfloor. 4' crawl space underneath. Floor joists are short because of pool in middle of the room so tubing under the floor would have to be drilled through many joists. Will possible chlorine fumes prevent placing an LP heater in the crawl space? Considering an air exchanger to control humidity in the room and crawl space. Rest of house air will be kept separate and continue to be heated with present forced air system which is fairly efficient but very old. Budget is extremely tight. But open to consider any single efficient heat source such as geothermal that could heat both but with separate zones.
