Solar heater setup

Postby JCB » Tue 05 May, 2020 01:08

I am considering adding solar heating to my inground 15000 gallon pool. With a solar blanket I get the pool to 85 degrees in mid summer, the purpose of this system is to lengthen my swimming season (by adding the solar heaters). My plan is to not run it through my pool pump, but have a separate solar powered pump which will run when the sun is out.

Pump: ... ump-System (I guess the AN600HS one?)
Heater: 2 of these... ... eater.html

The heaters will be about 10 feet from the pool on ground level, basically just beside the pool deck. I have a big yard with zero shadow on my pool during the day - which means the system will run all day (if sunny).

I'd appreciate any comments. Are the 2 heaters good enough? And is the pump size adequate?

Thanks in advance!

I bought GAME solar panel for a above ground 15 ft round pool. This thing has been great! After 1 day it was keeping the pool at 82 and by day 4 the pool was up to near 90!
