Use solar energy to heat your pool.
The return on your investment is better than the stock market – up to 50% if you currently use propane or gas to heat your pool!
Solar pool heating is uncomplicated and reliable. A properly sized solar pool heater will raise the temperature of the water 10 to 15 degrees (over an unheated pool). If you currently have a traditional pool-heating system, a solar pool heating system could pay for itself in as little as 2 years — an incredible 50% return on your investment — depending on how much you use your current pool heater. After that, your pool is warmed for free … forever.

In order to capture the sun’s energy, an area large enough to mount the collectors is necessary. This is typically a roof or a rack custom built for the collectors. The collector area necessary is 50% – 60% of the surface area of the pool. Costs of solar pool heating solutions vary depending on the size of the pool and difficulty of installation.
