  • thank you for taking out the time. You mentioned I'm not using any chemicals so no reason to be concerned on which type but does it matter that I will be running pool water through either Type L or ACR? I ask only cause I'm wondering if the pool chlorine would have any effect over one type vs the other.Lastly you mention if I want to avoid the price & possible hassle finding connectors... unless I'm reading this wrong which is very possible...lol... when you say avoid the price..you mean avoid spending too much money...if that's correct then shouldn't I be getting the ACR instead? I'm not sure how much it costs by you but here in NYC Type L... it's ALLOT more money then ACR.When I start looking for the connection pieces you mention... with ACR... would I be looking for same type conne…

  • hello DownUnder35M, thanks for taking time to reply. I appreciate all the info. Not sure if I'll be able to do the copper widow idea, stuff gets scrapped real quick up by me in NYC. I've seen allot of videos of people using irrigation tubing and then enclosing it to keep it hot and they seem to get really good results.I think the tubing I have might be better then irrigation tubing but I'm not sure. The only reason I can think no one has tried it is cause it's expensive to buy vs. The other one. I've had this roll in my garage for longtime back when I installed the radiant heat in my house. Now that I've found a possible use for it, I thought better use it for this, then keep storing it garage. But maybe it's not as good that's why I figured I would ask.
