Choosing The Right Pool Heater

You want to be able to enjoy your pool whenever you desire. So it's essential that you have a pool heater. The process of buying on can be confusing if you don't know what you're doing. So let's look at three main types of pool heaters and helping you decide which best fits your needs. For the best pool heaters click here.

Electric Pool Heat Pump

These heat pumps convert energy into heat and use electricity to move heat around. The water passes through the filter and pump making sure your pool is nice and warm. They also have one of the longest lifespans. So if you plan on investing in one, it would be a good idea.
These heat pumps are also the most affordable heating system option. They use less energy over long periods of time and have lower operating costs. Another interesting thing to know about these heat pumps, is that they're pretty easy to repair them yourself. And most heat pump parts are easy to order and install yourself compared to other heaters in the market. So that's a good thing to keep in mind if you're considering one of these.

Gas Pool Heater

These Heaters are fueled by natural or propane gas. They are more popular than any other pool heating options out there for many reasons. They have been around longer than any other heating system and they are also more powerful than any other heating system out there. Since they are more powerful that means they can maintain a warm water temperature in any weather, and are also faster to heat a pool.
These gas heaters use more energy which can be more expensive in the long run. So that's something you should think about, when deciding which you would wan to purchase. They also have a shorter lifespan compared to an electric heat pump or a solar heater because of the large amount of heat produced.

Solar Pool Heater

These eco-friendly heaters are better in sunnier places because they use the sun's energy to power the heater. The water is pumped through solar collectors to warm it. Unfortunately because they do need plenty of sunlight that makes it difficult to swim in a warm pool all year long. They also take longer to heat your pool depending on the amount of sunlight that day.
These solar heaters are a bit pricey, but over time it will save you lots of money with the amount of energy you save. They actually have a long lifespan like the electric heat pumps, if not longer. So with that being said a solar heater is a great option for someone who lives in the south.

If you're looking for something more powerful and something you can enjoy all year long, a gas heater is the one for you. But remember a gas heater is a bit more pricier in the long run. If you're looking for something that is not as powerful as a gas heater but can also save you a lot of money, you might consider an electric or solar heater.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
