Butch wanted an inexpensive way to heat his pool thereby extending pool season in Missouri. A solar water pool heater is less expensive to operate than conventional pool heaters. The temperature can be automatically set keeping your pool at a steady, comfortable temperature. Using the existing pool pump and equipment is another way this is cost effective and it does not use any additional energy. There are no additional moving parts added to the pool system. Butch’s garage housed his existing pool equipment so a rooftop mount was optimal and located near his pool.
