A properly sized solar system will effectively raise temperatures well
into the 80°F range. In addition to raising the water temperature,
your swimming season can be extended in cooler climates by as
much as 100 percent, and performs year round in warmer climates.
There may be short periods during inclement weather when the pool
water becomes cooler; however, a little sunny weather will return the
pool back to a comfortable temperature. Solar pool heating systems
are best suited for recreational pools, but can be easily designed for
commercial and industrial applications.
