This looks like the regular price based on the 3 wise camels.

Note that if you're going to use this, you need a way to switch it in and out of your filter circuit (not the electric circuit, the circuit of your plumbing), otherwise it will cool the pool on cloudy days where the air temperature is lower than the water temperature.

In a pool 6 degrees is a BIG deal. Water has a lot more heat flux than air. For me 64 F is frigid and 70 F is reasonable.

With that being said, seems TGTBT, I would check out trouble free pool. They seem to know what is legit on all things pool

I used to have an inground pool with solar heat, and it does work, and works well. But you need a good amount of surface area relative to the size of the pool. I had about 400 sq feet for an approx 16x32' pool, and this was in Florida. I don't think 40 sq feet will get you very far. Remember that this is going to supplement the heat from the sun absorbed by the pool directly. Say you've got a 24' round pool, that's about 450 sq feet. Installing one of these panels is adding less than an additional 10% of surface area.

YOu'd need at least 2 or 3 of these for a typical pool that is about 15k gallons.. Also, what piping is needed to connect to the existing system??

Quote from ultratumba :
Always loved the concept of this, however, the warmer the water on hot days, the faster your water evaporates, which translates to $$$ in water.
Seriously? All humans should go hibernate then.

Seen a lot of homes with water damage as they install this on roofs. Plastic eventually deteriorates over the years, joints fail, etc. Don't recommend.

My thoughts too. It takes a LOT of energy to raise the temp of a decent sized pool 10 degrees.
Maybe the quoted 6-10 degrees is for a bathtub sized pool.

Not just surface area, these are black tubes they absorb heat faster than clear open water. You are right about the size of the pool, I doubt this is made for larger pools.
I don't know if they say this but I think you can have 2 in series.

I just placed an order after reading some of the reviews. It should be good for our 12' round pool. It's $163.79 now.

It will in few days. We used solar pipes similar to this to heat water in my home country. This type of heaters reaches water into almost boiling temperature in a ~250 gallon tank in 8 hours of sun. I think we had more surface area but in few days I don't doubt it will raise water temperature. One note if you have kids keep them away from it the surface will be burning hot.
