After having a very heated (no pun intended) discussion with my 12 yro daughter regarding the temperature of our pool, I am leaning towards installing some sort of solar heating system to supplement our gas system.
Our current pool temp without the heater on and without a solar blanket is 68deg.
To heat from 68 to 80 using only gas would be ridiculously expensive.
I am hoping to get a 5-8 degree bump by using solar panels.
I don't want to say "money is no object", but I don't want to buy junk.
Since it can be very windy where we live, I will probably want a permanent installation on our roof.
I am looking for any recommendations for brand names, models, and sizing, etc.
Regarding installation, should I contact a plumber or a pool installer?
