Solar Arc Solar Pool Heater
Heat your Pool for Free this Summer with Solar Arc Pool Heater
Last year we purchased an above ground pool. Our teenagers are really enjoying the pool, especially my twelve year old son. The problem is that I find the above ground pool to be too cold most of the time. We made a decision this summer to buy a solar heater. Why a solar pool heater?
I just invested in an above ground pool, so I am not looking for a big expense. Also I do not want the expense of a propane pool heater. Most importantly I always try when I can to do the environmentally friendly thing. So we started looking to buy an above ground pool solar heater. I hope that you find this page helpful in making your decision to buy a solar pool heater.

Ordering my Solar Arc Solar pool heater
We decided to sit down and buy our Solar pool heater. What I found was most of them take up a lot of space, and just seemed unattractive to me. When i came across the solar arc I really appreciated the design. My husband appreciated the assembly instructions. We both appreciated that the solar arc is made in the USA. I am excited to report that the solar arc is now available on amazon.com. I will provide a link directly to the product. I love shopping on Amazon, because their customer service is #1 and they have fast shipping.

Two days later my Solar Arc solar pool heater arrives!!
It took my husband about an hour to hook it up. Everything we needed was included in the package with the Solar Arc. You will see on the left side is a white tube. We added that because we wanted to choose a prime location for our Solar Arc. All in all the Solar Arc gets a thumbs up on installation. The Solar Arc works the same as other solar pool heaters, but it comes in a sleek package and has a sun magnifying enclosure.

Using our new Solar Arc Solar Pool Heater
The Solar Arc has been heating our pool for a week now, and already it is much warmer. We finally had 3 sunny days in a row and the water temperature has gone from 68 degrees to 80 degrees. I was happy after installing our Solar Arc pool heater, but now I am thrilled! I am so happy to be heating our pool for free this summer! I can not wait to jump in.
Update- It actually gets better.
We have been using our solar arc for 2 summers now. Looking to forward to our third as we speak. We have had no problems at all with this heater. It works exactly as it did when we brought it home. I still find, on average that the solar arc will keep the pool at about 10 degrees warmer then normal. My husband built this really awesome waterfall feature incorporating the solar arc in his design. When we have kids to visit, they think it is the coolest thing. We enjoy it quite a bit ourselves. Check out the video I made about our solar arc, featuring our awesome waterfall. here is a link to the video.solar arc above ground pool heater
