If you have an outdoor pool, there’s plenty to be excited about. However, most pools really need a heater or the water won’t be very hospitable to you and your friends. Of all the heaters to choose from out there, solar powered ones may be your best bet. They get their energy from the sun, saving you money, but not sacrificing heat. Two options out there that make a lot of sense are the Eco Saver 20-Foot Solar Heating Panel System and the Intex Krystal Clear 15-Foot Solar Pool Cover. I will explain what they are and how they work in greater detail throughout these 2 solar pool heater reviews.
Eco Saver 20-Foot Solar Heating Panel System
This heater is 20 feet in size, but can handle an in ground pool that’s 15 feet by 30 feet, whether that area is as a circle or rectangle. It can support a round above ground pool that’s 24 feet round. So you’re getting a good amount of heating for your package. In size, the Eco Saver 20-Foot Solar Heating Panel System is about 20% wider than most other solar panels on the market. Plus, this heater works as a modular system. So buy what you can afford or need now and, later on, buy more if you decide you want to and install it for even more heat.
The heater is also both durable and flexible. Thanks to the latter trait, the Idpe material is easy to unroll quickly and start using immediately. Installation really is a breeze. Thanks to the former characteristic, you don’t need to worry about people having too much fun.
At $139.99, this is a great product you’re going to get a lot of use from. The modular aspect is perfect for people new to pools or at least at heating them because you can buy just one at first and see how it goes.
Intex Krystal Clear 15-Foot Solar Pool Cover
This is another great unit, but it’s specifically for 10 foot round pools and acts like a cover. So it’s going to provide a much different solution than the one above. One cool thing about this simple design is that it’s able to reduce evaporation by 95%. That’s a big deal considering, between the sun and artificial heating, you’re looking at considerable water loss you’ll otherwise need to pay for.
It’s not the largest heating cover in the world, but you don’t need it to be for your purposes. This size makes it easy to roll up and store, especially when you consider the bag that comes with it. Plus, taking it on and off couldn’t be easier because the cover just goes on top of the water. That’s it. There’s no attaching it or cumbersome installation. The cover just fits right inside the pool and floats there.
You can’t go wrong with this solar pool cover as it’s just around $33. So long as you have the right size for your pool, this is an easy cover to recommend. So no matter if you own an indoor or above ground pool you will be able to find the right solar pool heating system for your needs.
