Calculate the amount of solar panels you will need to heat your pool.

Use the solar panel sizing calculator to determine the right amount of paneling you will need to heat your pool year round.

A properly sized solar panel system will raise temperatures.

By raising water temperature, your swimming season can be extended in colder locations by as much as 100% and works year round in warmer weather.  There may be periods during extreme weather conditions when the pool water will become cooler, however when warm weather returns, the pool will be back to a comfortable temperature.

Solar pool heating systems are the best option for recreational pools and can also be designed for commercial and industrial applications.
