    Cheap pool heater

    Over the last 2 weeks I thought I would give this a try. These are plain black trash bags that I got from home depot. They are a little thicker than just the cheap ones you buy. They have worked really good. My temp in my water goes up about 1-2 degrees about an hour to hour and a half. Just thought I would share.

    You can get cheap hula hoops at dollar store to put inside. They float better that way. Just put inside and tie or close the opening. Easier to put in and get out.

    Note, hula hoops in bags did not work. Just blew to one side of pool.
