Granted I have not tried to warm my pool in the winter, so I would probally need a conventional heater.

    Welcome to TFP!

    I'm sorry no one was able to help. I presume you meant solar panels for heating pool water, not solar power, correct? If you do a Google search on "Houston swimming pool solar heat" you'll find several swimming pool solar heating companies.
    16,000 gallon outdoor in-ground 16'x32' plaster pool; Pentair Intelliflo VF pump; Pentair IntelliTouch i9+3s control system; Jandy CL-340 square foot cartridge filter
    12 Fafco solar panels; Purex Triton PowerMax 250 natural gas heater (200,000 BTU/hr output); automatic electric pool safety cover; 4-wheel pressure-side "The Pool Cleaner"
