How does this heat if the sun isn't out
This is my 2nd foray into solar pool heating. I bought a similar heater (different brand) summer 2011. When I went to hook it up this spring, one of the connectors broke! Since it is an odd configuration, I could not find any plumbing parts that could repair it, so i ended jerry-rigging it with various parts to get through the season. That made that heater functional, but it did leak, as i couldn't tighten down the connection appropriately. This fall, I bought the Sunheater to extend my swimming time; I am very pleased! The included (standard!) connections worked great; no leaks. My only criticism is that I have an 18' round pool, and while the documentation indicated that one heater would be enough, I think I really needed 2, as the increase in temperature was negligible. I will be ordering a second unit for use in the spring, and it looks like connecting the 2 together will be a breeze!...

Simple easy construction, heats up the pool nicely... Great value, easy to use..Read More
The upside it that this solar heater worked great - heated our pool six degrees the first day. If you can set this up right next to your pump you will have it made. The downside is we had to puchase $100.00 worth of hose and fittings to set it up, could not set it up right next to the pool pump.Read More
We are very happy with our Sunheater Aboveground-pool Solar Heater. The price was more than fair, and the quality of the Sunheater Aboveground-pool Solar Heater exceded our expectations.Read More
If you live in a cooler climate like I do this is an excellent way to be in your pool sooner. It does exactly what it says it will do. I would highly recommend. We found that (during the sunniest parts of the day) if you run the pump in short intervals, giving the mat a chance to heat back up (as the water cools it down), it works much better.Read More
This product worked wonderfully! It was easy to install (even for a novice like me) and the pool temperature has risen 10 degrees in a week - making it almost too warm, but that is better than freezing in my book. Just keep in mind that your pump has to be running for this to work as the water is pumped through the solar cell to heat it up. One other thing to keep in mind, the pump pressure isn't as great when the heater is hooked up - so if you want to vaccum your pool using a pump powered vaccum, you are better off disconnecting the solar heater first; but as I said, it is really easy to hook up and disconnect.Read More
As soon as it was hooked up per instructions, it started spouting water through 2 tiny holes within two of the plastic tubes. Would have been a good slip-n-slide, but I had to unhook it so I didn't continue to lose water from my pool through the unit.Read More

There's nothing quite like relaxing in a cool swimming pool when summer hits its peak. Whether you have young kids who love to play in the water or you like lounging on a pool float soaking up the sun yourself, swimming pools are wonderful additions to any home. However, pool maintenance isn't as simple as picking leaves off the surface of the water, and it can take up a lot of time if you don't have the right swimming pool accessories. Pool accessories can help you maintain the quality of your pool with less effort and time on your part and can even increase how much you enjoy your pool. Keep reading for information on popular swimming pool accessories.
How to Clean Swimming Pools

Most Popular Types of Garden Fountains
Fountains add the relaxing sound of running water to any setting. Outdoor fountains allow water to spout, jet, pour or trickle into a basin before draining away. Fountains range in size from burbling rock gardens ideal for tabletops to large pieces of public art. If you live in an urban area or a busy apartment complex, you can use a fountain to create a sense of privacy by masking traffic and other noises. When choosing an outdoor fountain, first consider how much space you have. Many yards can accommodate large pedestal-style outdoor fountains while a smaller fountain will create a focal point in a petite flower garden. The longer the waterfall, the more noise it creates; consider volume when choosing your garden fountain.
FAQs about Pre-Owned Rolex Watches | Overstock™ <meta property="og:image" content="img/mxc/150401_rolex-watches-from-Overstock-FB.jpg" data-pin-nopin="true" /> <meta name="twitter:image:src" content="img/mxc/150401_rolex-watches-from-Overstock-TWIT.jpg" data-pin-nopin="true" /> FAQs about Pre-Owned Rolex Watches by Shawna Edwards Published April 28, 2010 | Updated April 29, 2015 <img src="img/mxc/150401_rolex-watches-from-Overstock.jpg" class="hidden"> Shop Pre-Owned Rolex Watches ▸ I've never made a large purchase online. Why pick Overstock™?Overstock™ is one of the largest retailers of high-end jewelry and watches. We have taken the time to create a Web environment allows you to comfortably shop for wristwatches online. We offer a wide variety of timepieces at the most competitive prices available. In addition to this, we want you to feel secure purchasing from us. We are one of a handful of online high-end watch merchants that are capable of processing your credit card for your entire purchase. This allows "first-time buyers" to feel more secure in making a large purchase because they have an added layer of security via their credit card company. Do all your Rolex watches come with their serial numbers?Every pre-owned Rolex watch sold by Overstock™ will have its unique Rolex serial and reference numbers in place and viewable by removing the watch band from the six o'clock and twelve o'clock ends. What is meant by "Perfect Like New Condition?""Perfect like new (day one) condition" watches are pre-owned Rolex timepieces that are purchased by Overstock™ in pristine, mint, and immaculate condition. This is the case cosmetically and mechanically. Every timepiece is thoroughly inspected to ensure that they are authentic and meet our quality standards. These luxury watches are so pristine that, in most cases, they are indistinguishable from new watches. Our men's watches and women's watches may have miniscule markings, and the watch bracelets will have miniscule amounts of stretch. Will my watch come with documentation?Every watch will come with detailed documentation stating a full watch description, serial number, and model number. Being that the manufacturer's warranty has expired, you will receive a limited one-year warranty from our vendor. Will my watch be covered by a warranty, and what about post warranty service?Being that the manufacturer's warranties on these timepieces have expired, our vendor issues a one-year limited warranty on every watch. The warranty work is done by expert watchmakers who use only original manufacturers' parts and have decades of experience working with Rolex watches. After the one-year limited warranty has expired, you may continue to request service through our vendor who will service the watch when needed at industry cost prices. How can I be sure that the watch will fit my wrist?All our watches will fit up to a 6-and-a-half-inch wrist for a woman and for a man will fit up to a 7-and-a-half-inch wrist (extra links are available for additional charges). Rolex watches can be easily resized to fit any wrist by your local jeweler. How do I measure for my wrist size?You can get an approximate measurement of your wrist by using a soft measuring tape or measuring the inside of your best fitting watch. If you don't have a soft measuring tape, you can wrap a ribbon or a piece of string around your wrist at the wrist bone, mark the spot where it meets, and measure it against a ruler to determine your approximate wrist size. To get the best fit, measure fairly snug at the wrist bone. This is approximate sizing not a 100 percent guarantee of prefect sizing. If the watch is a gift and you do not know the recipient's wrist size, you can use the following as a guide (as with all products, the standard sizes depend on the manufacturer): Men's Standard Bracelet Sizes Inside, including watch face while bracelet is closed Adult Small 5½" to 6½" Adult Average 6½" to 7½" Adult Large 7½" to 8½" Adult X-Large 8½" to 9½" Women's Standard Bracelet Sizes Inside, including watch face while bracelet is closed Adult Small 4½" to 5½" Adult Average 5½" to 6½" Adult Large 6½" to 7½" Adult X-Large 7½" to 8½" Will the watch be fully water-resistant? And can I go swimming or shower with my watch?Every Rolex watch is fully tested for water resistance; the total depth rating is listed with every model. Drawing on years of experience, it is our recommendation that, though Rolex watches are water resistant, because of the fine nature of the timepiece, we discourage our customers from making a practice of taking them in the shower or pool. If for some reason the stem, which is the round mechanism found on the side of the case, which is unscrewed to set the time, is not completely screwed down, water could leak into the movement and damage the watch. (Please refer to your warranty card regarding water damage.) How does Overstock™ offer such great prices when my local jeweler has a similar piece for considerably more?Overstock™ has built the best connections in the business, affording us the ability to buy from dealers at the highest level of the industry. Through these connections, we can buy in the largest quantities while getting the best pricing. Being that we are not an authorized dealer of Rolex or affiliated with Rolex, USA, we are able to offer our customers rock bottom pricing without being subject to any manufacturer's price controls or policies. Do I need to be present to sign for the package?For your safety, you will need to sign for the package that contains your watch. If you are not present when it arrives, the package will not be left at your door. A door tag will be left to inform you when the courier will come to redeliver your package. Alternatively, you can call the courier to arrange a better delivery time or pick-up (with photo identification) at the local hub. What is the benefit of buying a pre-owned Rolex over a new one?Unlike new Rolex watches, pre-owned Rolex watches do not depreciate in value immediately after purchase. Therefore, buying a new Rolex watch is like buying a brand new car: The moment you drive it off the lot it has lost 20 to 30 percent of its value. With buying a pre-owned watch, you have effectively cut out any value depreciation and retail markup. Rolex watches hold their value over time; in most cases, a pre-owned Rolex can be resold at a price very close to your purchase price. How do I determine the age of my watch?You are guaranteed to receive a desirable modern watch with a fully automatic self-winding (or quartz movement depending on your purchase), with quickset date feature. Due to the fact that Rolex models are manufactured for a number of years, the year of your watch will be circa 1980s or 1990s. Every Rolex watch sold by Overstock™ will have its unique Rolex serial number, which determines the year of manufacture. Overstock™ and our Rolex Vendors are not affiliated with Rolex or Rolex, USA Inc., and are not an authorized Rolex dealer. Third party One-Year Warranty.
