    Aquaquik Solar Heater for AGP's - Any reviews/feedback?

    http://www.poolproducts.com/SPP/product ... 700&FNM=90

    Has anyone purchased or researched this? It sounds too good to be true, that a little dome could do the job of solar panels, but it sure would be nice!

    That device keeps coming up over and over recently. See for example this topic.

    It can't possibly do very much. It is only about 4 square feet, so even if it was perfectly efficient it would not provide very much heat. Compare 4 sqft to a standard solar panel with 80 sqft. And most people use several panels.

    Thanks for the link, I swear i searched on Aquaquik first and didn't find it. Looks like the thing is junk. I would love to do solar panels, but I am not sure I can pull it off without the homeowners association jumping all over me. I think they would have to go on the front slope of the house to get the right exposure...

    I guess I will stick with the solar cover for now!
