    Heater for my set up?

    So, all of these closing threads are making me sad. I don't have to close, but the water is still gonna be too cold!

    Does anyone have any kind of experience with heaters for above ground Intex pools, with the saltwater system that I have? Additional problem is that I don't have access to natural gas, so it would need to be electric.

    Re: Heater for my set up?

    Intex makes an electric heater, though I'm not certain how effective they are, I've never used one. In my area, electric heating is cost prohibitive for a pool. Electricity is just too expensive for the volume of water. Just had a thought that if NG isn't an option, you may want to look into propane options. I've seen propane fired spa heaters that could be run off a 20lb tank. I suppose it all depends on how large the water volume is. Larger tanks are of course available almost everywhere that sells bbq equipment.
