A fellow DIYer and amateur woodworker I like working on home projects when I'm not sitting in front of a computer.

comment How can I efficiently heat a pool?
I live in a hot southern climate so that probably wouldn't work . . . although there is a bit of overlap where I'm cooling the house still and wish the pool were just a bit warmer. I'll run into that show eventually . . . I watch TOH and Ask TOH I'm just really behind!

comment How can I efficiently heat a pool?
Might be an old question but I'm still wondering. Most suggest to add what is essentially black tubing to my roof and that should "extend the season" but won't keep the pool warm in the winter. And it's not exactly "free" since you have to pay to pump the water up there and even with a variable speed pump it's probably the second or third biggest user of electricity for a homeowner. "People with experience" say that using gas to heat a pool, even for a weekend, costs nearly $100 even in a mild winter climate like in Phoenix, AZ. I've concluded we aren't swimming in winter!

Just in time for this to drive me crazy again! I'll try that out.
