Solar Heating

dan77October 7, 2010

Any opinions on solar heating for a swimming pool in the DFW area? Is it as effective as gas or electric?

We live in San Diego CA, solar heating was the best thing we did. We still have gas heater, but solar works better than I though it would.

We live in Jacksonville and love our solar heat as it is free and automatic. We also have a heat pump and only use this an auxillary backup.

Phoenix here, solar extends our swim time (March-November). I put on a solar cover when the nights get cooler. Generally have water temps in the mid 80's.
Love the solar. Makes pool usable and comfortable 9 months out of the year. Mid summer when the pool gets to warm just from the sun, I run the solar at night and it cools down the pool.
