A solar pool heater can substantially reduce your pool heating expense. Most solar pool heating systems will pay back their initial investment within a few years. Combined with a solar pool cover, a solar pool heater will transform the costly burden of heating your pool.
Solar pool heaters are very straightforward, ranging from simple DIY solar options, to more sophisticated commercial systems. Most solar pool heaters are comprised of a solar collector, a pump, a storage tank and a thermostat. Maintenance is minimal. Hot tubs and spas can also be heated by a solar pool heater.
Another way to augment your solar pool heater is with the addition of a solar pool cover. The sun's heat energy penetrates the cover, heating the water, where it is then trapped. It's a very simple, yet elegant solution. A number of systems and covers are available that simplify their application and removal.
What a pleasure to have a hot solar shower after a nice swim in the pool. Wash away the chlorine and don't worry about getting the chills. Poolside solar showers have large capacity to accomodate multiple guests.
