    Best Way to Heat Pool During Winter - Arizona

    My daughter's birthday is in November and we would like to throw a birthday pool party. Any suggestions as to the best way to heat a relatively large, inground pool? I've read many reviews involving floating solar rings but they vary in terms of their effectiveness. Any advice is appreciated.

    You will need a gas heater to get any reasonable heat added to the pool at that time of year. And a cover to reduce heat losses to evaporation.

    Gas heater? Can you elaborate or post a link to an example of your recommendation?

    It is possible to use also a heat pump. With the new ones you will get 4-5 kWh of heat for each kWh taken from the mains.

    I am going to mention solar heat as a possible option if you have enough area for collector, although as the available amount of sunlight drops off rapidly in November a lot depends on the exact date and weather conditions. Last year we hosted a birthday party of a neighbor's 16 year old kid in the middle of November (15th o 16th) with only solar heat and while the water was a bit cool at about 77 degrees, the kids did not mind. (The pool was still at 82 on Halloween) Of course we are in a slightly different climate and have an indoor pool which makes a difference.
