Does it heat the pool? Well I have an 18' half in and half out of the ground pool. It will raise the temp about 4 degrees F in a sunny day. When the weather is consistent, combined with a good solar cover it all adds up after a few days and the pool is nice and warm. Also a good point to note is that when we get a sudden two day chilly but sunny spell, it generates enough heat to maintain the temperature nice and warm. So yes it works well for heating. Happy with that.
My only gripe is quality control. The second unit I bought this year came with several holes in it already which I didn't realize until its fully assembled and spraying water everywhere. Too many holes to fix and they were between the tubes, not in the tubes so obviously a mfg defect there. Had to return it and lost faith a bit there so didn't replace it. (Thx Amazon for being fair and great customer service). The second defect is that its impossible to stop the end caps and the water line connections from leaking even with Teflon tape. Water seems to appear from no where out of the capped fittings which has a ring holes around it in the pipe itself. Also decided to stop cranking down on the fittings as I was afraid I was going to split the PVC. So it leaks from 4 spots but I will be honest and say its negligible amount of water, I just hope that the frame underneath does not rot out too quickly from being constantly wet.Read more ›
Company was unsympathetic and refused to honor the warranty.
IF I WERE YOU, I WOULD SUSPECT THE QUALITY OF ANY PRODUCT THAT SHIPS WITH A REPAIR KIT. THE GUAGE OF THE PLASTIC TUBES IS THIN TO SAY THE LEAST AND THE TUBES ARE NARROW ENOUGH FOR FROZEN DROPLETS TO EXPLODE THROUGH THE WALLS.

Heats nicely, but kind of a pain to take down at the end of the season.Published 10 months ago by David H. Schultz
This was okay. I had a hard time sealing the fittings to the panel. I probably needed more panels, and I should have drained the water out before winter. Read morePublished 15 months ago by T. J. Bowman Jr.
