Benefits of a Heated
Swimming Pool

Heating a pool is not a luxury, it is a necessity! If you bought a car for $40,000 and the salesperson neglected to tell you that you could only use it during the months of June, July, and August, you might reconsider your decision. You would enjoy your vehicle for those three months and then for the remaining 9 months, continue

the payments, insurance, storage fees, and etc. If I told you for an extra 10% you could use the car year round, which would you buy, the $40,000 car which you could only use three months of the year or the $44,000 car that you could use year round.

That is the reality of an unheated pool on the Suncoast. You may take a “dip” in May and September but the comfortable swimming season is June through August when the water temperatures are above 80 degrees. Most of our clients will tell you that 80 degrees is too cold. If you want to maximize your investment in your pool, a heated pool is a necessity. Do you want to make that 10% additional investment to get the full value of your pool?

How Does A Solar Pool Heater Work

Solar collectors on the roof absorb the heat of the sun. The water pushed by the pool pump is filtered and then diverted by a valve, sending the clean pool water to the solar collectors on the roof where it is warmed and then returned to the pool. The sun’s energy is free and abundant in our climate. Even on cloudy days, as anyone who has gotten sunburn knows, a solar pool heater is still able to heat your pool with the same ultraviolet rays that gave you that sunburn. The rays of the sun don’t go away; they pass through the cloud cover to continue heating your pool.

Gas heaters generally need to be replaced every 4 to 6 years. Electric heat pumps don’t last much longer, perhaps 5 to 8 years, provided you are using them in the spring and fall.

In simple terms you would buy two fossil fuel heaters and your solar heater would still be under warranty!
