Depending on where you live in the country, you may not have a long swim season. In fact, for pool owners in some parts of the country — like in the east – swim season may only be months long. California and Fort Worth, Texas pool owners are fortunate in that they have looooong swim seasons. The swimming pool contractors from Seahorse Pools & Spas in Fort Worth, Texas have tips on how to extend your swim season. Hint — include a pool heater!

Sun can also help heat the pool water and is one of the most economical ways to heat the pool water. There is an upfront cost for the installation of a solar powered pool water heater, but it will pay for itself over the years in pool heating costs AND in extending the fun you have in your pool.

How to extend your swim season

If you’re a swimming pool owner who wants to heat the pool water in an environmentally-friendly way, talk with us about the installation of a solar powered heating system. The way a solar heating system works is that it:

  1. Takes the water
  2. Pumps it through a heat exchanger
  3. Returns it to the pool. The cooled water will be returned to the pool warmed and comfortable for swimming

The water goes through a filtration system that operates via a low horse-power electric pump. You may need to run the pump about eight hours a day to effectively heat the pool water via the use of the solar heating system.

Another component of a solar heating system is that there is a heat/temperature controller.  This allows you to regulate the water temperature for the most comfortable swimming experience possible.

Give us a call and let’s talk about extending your swimming pool season through the use of a pool water heater. We can talk you through the nuances of all the types of heaters and help you find the one that is best for you.
