How And Where To Buy a Swimming Pool Solar Heater

If you are looking for a more environmentally friendly way to heat your swimming pool, you might want to have a look at a swimming pool solar heater. Solar swimming pool heaters are also a great way to lower your energy bills, and they should pay for themselves in less than two years.

There are many different options for solar swimming pool heating, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. There are solar swimming pool heater panels that are normally placed on the roof and absorb the sun’s energy and transfer to the pool water through a series of tubes that pass under the black panels. 

There are also coiled pool heaters that are much smaller and can be moved around easily, although they are not quite as efficient as solar pool panels. These solar heaters are basically a coil of black pipe or tubing that is insulated inside a glass or plastic bubble. The black pipe absorbs heat from the sun’s rays and transfers it to the pool water when it is circulated through the pipe. 

These solar swimming pool heaters function in basically the same way as solar pool heating panels which are normally attached to a roof, expect that these smaller heaters are much cheaper and easier to install. These smaller solar pool heaters also have another advantage in that their coil design allows them to take up much less space and they can be placed directly next to an above ground or in ground pool. 

While these heaters may not raise your pool’s temperature as quickly as heating panels, they are still a great way to cheaply heat your pool and they can still lead to a 5 to 10 degree rise in temperature in a week. Another advantage is that you can install as many of these heaters as you need due to the fact that they can be easily be connected together to form a chain. 

Below you will find descriptions and reviews of some of the most popular brands of swimming pool solar heaters you can find online. Whether you decide top purchase a coiled heater or heating panels, you can’t go wrong with these heaters.
