We have a 24' round above ground pool in central Indiana. The house included a old propane heater but the pilot will not light and with the cost of propane I'm not sure it's with having someone come to try and fix it. So I was wondering if there are any relatively simple to install solar heating options that can help get the water ready to swim a little earlier in the year and allow it to stay open a little later in the year. Looking to spend $350 at most and not willing to install anything on roof of house. Any good options?
If we were to try to get the heater fixed so we can an hvac company or a pool store to look at it?
Thanks in advance.
