Would you like to know how to build a solar pool heater? Wanna do it DIY style?
Living in the north, our pool season is very short. I wanted a way to heat the pool & extend the season, but I did not want to spend thousands of dollars in initial cost & then hundreds of dollars on monthly gas bills.
So I decided to build a solar pool water heater.
The cost for the materials we used for our solar pool heater is around a hundred bucks & should only take you around 2 – 6 hours to build, depending on your skill level. The cost of operating the system is pennies a day. Do not be intimidated by the project. Whether you are experienced or not, this solar pool heater project is well worth the effort!
