“If solar pool heating doesn’t work in Florida, can you tell me where it would?”

– Jim Roark, of Roark Solar

Roark solar pool heatersA recent article in the Cost Saving Solution section of spoke about the benefits of a Roark solar powered water heater for your pool. If you’re like many Floridians, a pool is a necessity as well as a luxury for the hot days of summer, entertaining and exercise. With a Roark solar power heater you can extend those days by months and get more out of your pool season.

For just about the same cost for a heat pump, a solar heater has a longer lifespan and cost nothing to run each month. All it needs to heat your pool is the wonderful Florida sun which is free!

“We’re frugal people, and the benefits outweighed the cost of the system,” Bolcik said in the article. In addition, Bolcik hasn’t incurred any costs to heat his 7,300-cubic-foot pool and the system hasn’t broken, it doesn’t need cleaning, and it doesn’t require electricity.

In comparison, Bolcik uses natural gas to heat a smaller spa pool that is approximately a sixth the size of the regular pool. Using gas to heat the spa costs about $5 a day, he said.

Using a Roark experienced professional and picking a high-quality system is the best way to save money and enjoy your pool for a longer period of time. Give Roark a call at 941-924-3016.

He fixed up the solar hot water and the solar for the pool. We had a local company install solar heating for our pool, then the following year we had solar panels installed to heat the water.  This job did not go well so we inquired with this company to find out what they did wrong.
