Can I Convert a Geothermal Closed-Loop to an Open-Loop System? - Ask the Expert Episode 221

"Hey Dan, is it possible to convert a geothermal closed-loop system to a pressure-free open-loop system?"

I think by "pressure-free" he's talking about a geothermal unit and an open-loop system. The answer is yes provided that your property could meet all the requirements for an open-loop system and the geothermal heat pump you're using could be installed as an open-loop system, which most can.

You would just need to make sure that your water quality is good enough and that local municipal codes allow you to do so. The thing that prevents most people from installing an open-loop system is that their local municipality says no.
