      I expected more from the description. It is basically just a long strip of hard tube that the water runs through.

    • Swimming sooner than normal
      Verified Purchase

      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.

      i modified the product for my inground pool. i have a jet that feeds directly into the solar panel which i placed on the deck of the pool. it does warm the water very well and it also works as a slip mat for the kids...

    • Great Solar Heater
      Verified Purchase

      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.

    • Sprung a leak as soon as it was hooked up
      Verified Purchase

      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.

    • Nice product, but I needed 2 of them
      Verified Purchase

      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!

      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.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "A pool store told me that if you do not disconnect at night, this will run and cool the water down. It's this true? "

      • A:

        Don't have to disconnect. Just turn it off. If you get a "diverter valve" you can still run the pump as it will bypass the collector.

    • Q:

      "What size is this panel. "

      • A:

        This item is approximately 2 ft. W x 20 ft. L.

    • Q:

      "Can this be used with a diverter so the heater is not in use when your water is warm enough? If so, is there a specific one needed for this unit?"

      • A:

        Hello majiqlady, I'm positive you would be able to use a diverter. I couldn't find that we have one available on

    • Q:

      "How many heaters are shown in the above photo? Can you tell me is it attached to anything or leaning up agains the pool? We have an 18" round 48" high. The heater I purchased last year didn't work at all. I'm looking for something new and this looks like it might do the trick. Thanks, Ruth"

    • Q:

      "do I need to buy a kit to hook this up or hose?"

      • A:

        Hello Benjamin M., this solar heater comes with the needed hookups. I hope this helps. Have a great day!

    • Q:

      "Why did you choose this product?"

      • A:

        replace the one I have

      • A:

        Because of the review saying it heats up 10 degrees a week. I have six grandkids that love the water and I hate to see their chattering teeth. And we will use it on our hot tub when swimming season is over.

      • A:

        To heat my pool.

      • A:

        Had a propane heater. This should be better.
