Benefits of Solar Pool Heating

Want to go swimming but your pool is too cold?
The weather in Southern California, Southern Arizona and Las Vegas, Nevada may be perfect but you still need to rely on a heater if you want to enjoy your pool in all but the hottest summer months.

Enjoy warm pool water.
Solar pool heating lets you maintain warm water temperatures by harnessing free energy from the sun. Solar heating is cost efficient, easy to maintain and warms your pool without the high cost of gas or electric.

Solar works!
With a solar pool heated pool, you can enjoy your pool for 8-10 months each year. That’s triple the expected swim time with a non-heated pool and best of all there’s no costly gas or electric bills to pay. You’ve made an investment in your pool – now utilize it to its fullest.
