Solar Panels Heat

Has anyone used solar panels to heat their pool, and what are your comments about them?

Trying to decide between a wood burner that heats the pool, or solar panels. Has anyone had any experiences with either and what are your opinions?

Solar pool heating is an incredibly efficient method of heating the pool. You need to be sure to size it correctly, 1 panel isn’t going to make any difference. Generally you need the equivalent of 70 – 100% of the pool surface in solar panels, depending on your location.
