I'm hoping to get solar panels for this swim season.
I normally open the pool in May, but don't swim until the end of the month or June, depending on the weather. And I close the pool in Sept-Oct depending on weather, but pool isn't used much due to the water temp.
I would like to keep the water temp at 80+.
Rear roof is in full sun from mid-morning until around 6pm.
This will be a DIY setup, and I'm looking for something that will last and not need replacing after a season or two.
What are some of the recommended brands that people on TFP use?
Do the solar panels need to come down in the winter months? (Ohio valley so winters can vary from very cold, snowy, to semi-warm, seasonal)
Is there any other helpful information you can give?
Here is how my house sits in regards to the pool and sun.
Pool is in the back of the house which faces south. Pool pump/filter are on the East side of the house.
