I have a 30k vinyl swimming pool. The liner is pretty dark and it gets full sun all day, so it's generally pretty warm, but I'd like to bump it up a little if I can. I came up with this idea:
Basically, just attaching a PVC pipe to the return jet, and then running that up to the pool deck where it would be connected to a series of black PVC pipes, arranged like the attached picture shows. I could use an inline switch to turn off flow to the solar array and have the return jet go directly into the pool.
My question is whether this will be efficient enough to make any kind of a difference. My guess is the solar array would be about ten feet long by about two or three feet wide. Any solar experts want to give me an opinion on whether this would work?
