Sometimes when I talk to people with above ground pools, particularly newer owners, they don’t realize the amount of goodies that are available to them. Above ground pool owners, you are not second class citizens! One such item that pertains here as well is that of pool heaters. Many aowners don’t even think about pool heaters for above ground pools (buy them here) as they think it’s likely not an option.

In the words of Lee Corso, “Not so fast my friend!”

As a matter of fact, there are multiple options for heating an above ground pool to help you extend the pool season into the Fall, or perhaps get you out into your pool a bit earlier next year. Either way, let’s run down some of your options lest you think we’re just blowing smoke here!

The first item you may want to consider is the Sun Heater Solar Heating System (we have them here). This heater comes with a four foot by twenty foot heating panel that pumps heat into your pool. This can be very cost effective as well, as this won’t touch your heating bill. Nice, eh?

Yep, you can get the two by twenty version as well and you can mount these things anywhere – on your roof, on an old car in your yard, on the back of a horse statue – whatever you’d like. The important thing is that it’ll warm up your pool. Click on the image to the right to learn more about this tiny dynamo. Right now it’s available at Swimtown Pools for only $129.99.
