First off, though I don't post much, there is a wealth of knowledge on these forums that have helped me as a new pool owner, so many thanks for that.
I am interested in purchasing some small solar panels. Looking at the ecosaver space saver 30" x 10' panel for my 21' AGP. My goals are to raise the temp of my pool a few degrees in the summer. The pool has been between 75 and 77 degrees pretty consistently so far this season. I do use a solar cover at night. I'd like to see Temps hover around 80 and for space reasons, I'll eventually be able to fit 4 of the ecosaver panels giving me roughly 50 Sq ft of solar panels.
I currently have a Hayward Matrix 2 speed 1.5 HP pump...do you think it would be sufficient on low speed to pump up 12' to my shed roof, and back 25' to the pool? Worst case, I will have to use the pump on high speed.
Also, could someone point me in the right direction as far as plumbing the panels? I have just the pump, sand filter and one eyeball return currently- a pretty basic setup. I want to make sure I do this correctly.
