So I tried searching but got a little overloaded ...
One thing the wife and I have talked about was adding a pool heater to extend our season. I'm not necessarily talking winter just a few more months earlier and later spring and fall. We live in houston and thus get maybe 5 days a year that are "freezing", lots of sunlight, and have a HUGE backyard with very little shade so Solar seems to be a good and cheap option compared to a gas heater. I'd rather not mount anything on my roof, as I said I have a large yard where I could build something to attach solar panels.
1. Can someone point in the right direction to information on buying and installing a good solar panel system?
2. Can I do it myself or do I need to hire a pool tech?
3. Is it actually worth the effort?
4. Does need to be mounted to the roof high up or will anywhere that gets good sunlight work?
Thanks for the help
