Whether you turn to installing solar panels to generate energy for the pool — and for your entire house, for that matter — or use a solar swimming pool cover, using solar can cut the amount of money you pay for your electricity bills. In fact, some individuals have noted they went from paying more than $1,000 a month to less than $200; this could be an extreme example, but the potential for savings are there for any pool owner who opts for solar.

Your swimming pool contractor can help you determine whether solar heating is right for you and he can also let you know what the up front costs will be and how long it might take you to see a return on your investment.
