Just got a quote over the weekend on putting in solar panels to extend our swimming season. Our pool is more round than oval (see avatar), approximately 14' x 24' and 3-5' deep. The salesperson estimated about 336 square feet and said optimally we should get 5 panels but that we could probably do with only 4 given that our pool gets full sun all day. This equals out to about 200 square feet of Heliocol panels. I don't want to short-change ourselves but don't want to get the 5th panel if we really don't need it.
What does everyone think?
