This is our first summer with a pool and we are eager to extend our swimming season as long as possible. We've got a 12 mil solar blanket that is on the pool any time we are not swimming and our water temperature was 88 degrees last night. That will change soon, however, I'm sure as the ambient temperatures go down in the next month or so.
Our equipment pad is on the south side of our house and we have a large expanse of roof on that side of the house. I am hoping that this is an ideal set up for a solar heating system.
I am interested in either a professional installation of some type or hiring a plumber to install a prefab unit -- we definitely want to avoid an eyesore DIY arrangement (this part of our roof is quite visible).
Can anyone offer any recommendations?
