    Help with Solar Panel Heating for a 24' Round Intex Above Ground

    Found a solar panel system the has good reviews (4' x 20'). Called the company to ask about a diverter kit and asked if it would work with an Intex pool and they said no. So I started checking and only a couple of systems work with Intex. I think our pool has 1" ends and the solar system uses 1 1/2" to 2" (depending on the system) ends. Is there a way to adapt for this?

    Thanks

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    What pump do you have? The may be saying no because you pump just does not have the ability to move enough water quickly enough through the solar. There are certainly ways to use adapters to connect it though.
