I got mine laying against some scraps of plywood and that works pretty well.

The hose connections don't have any retaining ridges and are slightly undersized when attaching the hoses so the hoses are loose and will leak unless you apply sealer.

Tip for everyone...my water can get too warm if you have a very hot weather period.

I bought 4 sets of these - each set has (2) 2'x20' panels
Each panel is supposed to put out 40k BTU, so each set = 80k BTU
Multiply x4 sets = 320,000 BTU

I only have 5 panels installed now
I'm located about 20 miles south of Boston, MA
My pool was 55 degrees 5 days before Memorial Day
On Memorial day the pool was 76 degrees
Today the pool was right around 88 degrees

I have the panels setup in 2 systems
1st 2 panels are connected to the pool pump & filter & can be easily bypassed
I can also divert the water into a hot tub, which is also solar heated
The next 3 panels are setup with a seperate pump ~500gph
Each set is on a different side of the pool
This maximixes the solar heat thru the day

These systems are very easy to setup & connect
I've hads mine running since 2005...free heat every year
Longer swimming season & more comfortable

I have 2 hot tubs that are solar heated
The one by the pool I usually divert water from the pool to keep it below 98
Extra water/heat goes to the pool
The 2nd tub is by the house & tops out at 110 if I run it all day
I only run it for a few hours every other day now

I bought several sets off EBAY -$125 for (2) 2'x20' panels
I have an inground pool, these are labeled for above ground
But they work just fine....don't pay extra for the "inground" panels

I purchased six of these 2 X 20 solar heat panels a few years ago and they have definitely gotten some good use. They do perform as indicated and in warm weather are able to increase the pool temperature by 10 degrees or more. According to the thermometer on my salt chlorinator, when the temperature is about 85 or higher, the six panels raise the temperature of the water about 2 degrees each time water cycles through them. Not bad for something that uses essentially zero energy. The drawback to these when compared to a gas or electric heater is that when the outside temperature is below about 80 degrees or the sun is not shining on the panels they do little to nothing to increase the temperature of my water. For me, they get the job done because I like my water pretty warm and would most likely not swim on days like that anyway. When I have used these in conjunction with a solar blanket I am usually able to get the pool water about ten degrees warmer than the high temperature for the day on a sunny day during the swimming season. For those looking to extend your swimming season I recommend these, but for those wanting a year round heating solution, look to gas or electric heating instead.

My pool is a 21' round above ground that gets sunlight for only the morning half of the day due to a neighbors tree that blocks it from 2 pm on. Over the past 5 years my pool's temp has topped out at it highest at 78 degrees. Since adding only one of the SmartPool solar heaters and facing it towards the am sunlight my pool has reached temps of 86 degrees this year.

I have a 24 ft round above ground pool. I bought a pair of these 10 years ago. You can expect to raise your pool temp 5-10 degrees with this system. Prior to using this system I was using a solar blanket ( which worked, but not as well, and the taking off to swim, then putting it back on, became a real chore- I no longer use the blanket at all). One of the pair must have been a factory defect, because I had to plug several of the channels in that unit over the last 10 years because of leaks. Finally this year, and yet another leak, caused me to purchase a replacement unit. So far all is well, and the other unit is still going strong. I recommend this system( even with the factory defect) because 5-10 degrees can make a real difference in choosing to swim or not. I would recommend you consider purchasing the optional diverter valve which allows you to use the solar heater or bypass it. I bypass the heater at night( which keeps the heated water in the pool), then turn the valve in the morning to use the heater. As a note: I obtained 6 wooden pallets, painted them black, set them on the side by side next to my pool, rolled out the solar panels onto the pallets, made the connections, easy peasey. In the fall, I disconnect, roll up the solar panels, stack the pallets and solar panels out of the weather. In the spring I start over again- it's worked well for me.

I have a 4400 gallon above-ground pool and this makes it about 6 degrees hotter. Of course I live in central Florida, so it has plenty of sun on it. Right now I'm using the tiny pump that came with the pool and that seems to have more than enough flow through the heater. It doesn't come with any supports like in the picture, you have to make those. I got mine laying against some scraps of plywood and that works pretty well. They send it rolled up in the box along with a bag of fittings, hose clamps and teflon sealing tape.

For the money it's completed my sons expectations. We live in central Indiana so warmer days and cooler nights are typical. If I cover the pool when not in use it helps a great deal. As a single mom I did have to recruit a man to help complete the installation and a additional hose was needed which the local small hardware store had.
