This step by step tutorial of how to build a homemade solar warming heater is a effective option for the budget minded homesteader. If you’re tired of not being able to use your pool in the colder months, then this tutorial for a DIY solar pool heater is the perfect solution to your problem.
With this heater, you can raise the temperature of your pool one degree per day, but that will fluctuate depending on the weather. If that doesn’t sound like a huge change in temperature to you, think of it like this: In one week, your pool could go from 55 degrees to 62 degrees. And, because it’s constantly warming, this can stay pretty consistent throughout the year.
The best part about this tutorial is that other than buying the items you’ll need to create the heater, you won’t have to spend any money to heat your pool. Sunshine is free, so as long as you have access to it, you have access to the source of your pools heat. While this isn’t often suggested, take some time to read through the commenters after the tutorial. Several tried their own versions of this project and they’ve come up with amazing adjustments that can make your pool heater even more efficient.
Having your own pool is amazing. You have your own privacy and you can swim whenever you want, as long as it’s sunny. Of course, if you don’t like taking dips in freezing cold water, you can only use your pool for about half the year, and that’s if you live somewhere decently warm. And, if you even think about buying equipment to heat your pool when it gets cool outside, you’re looking at spend hundreds to thousands.
