Solar Heated Pools

solar heated pools
I have an above ground pool. Solar covers are a pain. Can I heat my pool by painting the outside of it black?

If black absorbs heat from the light of the sun… wouldn’t it heat the water a little bit to paint the outside of the above ground pool black? Interested if anyone has tried this.

It is possible that the pool temperature may raise a few degree’s by doing this. You will also violate your pool warranty. A second option besides a solar cover, is a solar panel, which sets apart from your pool and you never have to move it to go for a swim. It hooks inline with your filter system and can ad 10-15 degrees of heat
