    new install Above ground pool

    Hi new here, just found this site last night.
    we had a 18ft pool in yesterday. We are running the electrical now.
    Lot of stuff to do to finish it


    Does the solar panels that you can buy from some of the pool suppliers work?

    Thanks, I will have a ton of questions.
    Still figuring out the board, do you have a picture of your setup with the heaters?

    Recommendation of where to order them from?

    I have the Fafco brand heater. To optimize the effect you will also need a solar cover. Nice pool!
