    Solar pool heating is all about area of the panels, there is no getting around that. While I suspect these small panels can produce hot water thanks to their semi glazed design, that is not exactly what you want to warm a pool, you want total volume of heat. Think of these as trying to heat a bath tub in a cold house with a trickle of really hot water, vs a gushing faucet of warm. For effective solar heating you typically need panels sized at 50-100% of the surface area of your pool, while less than 50% will help some it starts getting like trying to heat a house with a single cube heater.
