    • Winter swimming

      I love my solar heater. Only thing was I had to buy 2 boxes to heat my size pool (14,000 gallons). I wish they had had the box with 4 panels instead of 2. I was reading under questions and answers something about the box coming with a solar blanket. It does not come with the blanket. It is strictly the panels and clasps. I also bought the roof kit. It worked perfectly when installing the panels. Both were much cheaper than elsewhere. My Florida pool is more like a hot tub now.

    • Working great so far

      I compared these panels with a competitor brand and these were significantly less expensive but the competitor brand had a 12 year warranty and these only had a 5 year warranty. However the price difference was significant enough that I could purchase 2 of these for less than the competitor panels. I therefore decided to purchase these panels. I purchased 5 of the panel packages and had them mounted on the roof. I have them controlled by a thermatic controller (thermatic valve). On the very first day of operation (early May) pumping only 4 hours (no increase to my filter duration) it raised the temperature ~12 degrees (to 82 degrees F). By the second day the temperature had hit our thermatically controlled setting point of 84 degrees. I suspect we will easily extend our swim season by ~4 months (used to be June through early Oct, now I suspect it should be Mar through ealry to mid Nov). This is exactly what I was hoping for when I purchased these panels. I do recommend getting and using a thermatic controller with these panels. So first week installed they are operating great. Now I just need them to continue to operate as well for at least 5 years. If they fall apart in less than 5 years then I should have gone with the other panels.

    • Works super with some weak links

      Bought the basic kit for Lake Havasu where temps are up to 117. System went on easy. I purchased the recommended installation kit. My pool uses 2 inch PVC so the 3 way valve was useless. Plan on spending another $90 on a Jandy valve, The weakest link are the rubber connectors. Left the unit running the first day and came home to find a half empty pool. The connector had split and pumped water down my roof for hours. Replace with Lowes 1 1/2 connectors which are twice the thickness at about $1.50 each. All in all the system heat wonderrfully.

    Questions & Answers

    Get your product questions answered right here.
    • Do you connect this to the pump of your pool and have to run your pump to push water through or does solar panel move water as it heats?

      • Hello deniak, water simply flows through the SunHeater's many tubes via your existing pool pump where it is heated by the sun and returned to your pool. We hope this answers your question. Thank you for shopping with us.

    • How many gallons will one 4' x 20' panel kit heat? I have a 15000 gal pool. Will one kit containing the 4' x 20' solar panel heat my pool sufficiently? Thanks in advance for a fast response. I need this item like yesterday so PLEASE RUSH a response to my question. If just one kit of a 4'x20' solar panel is not sufficient what do you recommend? Thanks again P.S, I'm confused if the panel kit includes the installation kits with it. If not do you sell it and how much do they cost. please provide a sku number so I can look them up and add to my cart if necessary. Is more than one install kit needed if I have to purchase more than one solar 4'x20' solar panel kit. Thanks again in advance for a fast response. As I mentioned I need this item like yesterday! Please respond ASAP! Thanks
