I am looking at getting solar panels installed to heat my pool. All in cost will be around C$3.5k - this will likely be for 6 panels as we like to keep our pool at about 85F. Does this sound reasonable? The type of panels are evacuated tubes that are supposed to be better than mats. This will be an open loop system which is still supposed to be okay for a salt water system.
Does that seem like a reasonable price? I haven't figured out exactly what our summer gas bills have been but I would guess that this would have about a three year payback.
