Every year, thousands of people purchase an Above Ground Pool only to find that, even in the height of the Summer, the water is too cold to enjoy.
The dilemma facing Above Ground Pool owners is which is the most cost-effective means of heating a pool.
Direct electrical heating is most popular for these reasons:
• Very low initial purchase price in comparison to other forms of heating.
• Easy to install and plumb. No need for vents and chimneys.
• Takes advantage of “Off peak” heating tariffs to minimise running costs.
• Smaller than alternative heating, therefore easy to site near your pool.
These maybe cheap to purchase but the running costs can be very high.
Other heat sources could be Solar, or heat pumps etc.

Installing a swimming pool heating system will dramatically increase the enjoyment you gain from your pool. Not only will you benefit from a comfortable water temperature during peak season, you will substantially increase the length of your swimming season.
You will need to run your pool circulation continuously when opening your pool in Spring. Once you have achieved the desired temperature you should revert back to operating the pool circulation via a time clock.
The length of time that you will need to run your circulating pump to maintain your desired water temperature is dependent upon many factors (air temperature, wind chill factor, heater output etc.). Pool circulation needs to be run for longer periods when the weather is cold. Ensure that your Above Ground Pool has its Solar Cover fitted whenever the pool is not in use. This will ensure that your pool water will be maintained at a comfortable temperature without the heater having to work too hard.
If adding an Electric Heater to a pool with a Salt Chlorinator, ensure that it has a body made from Titanium to resist the more corrosive water.
Electric swimming pool heaters should be installed and serviced by qualified professionals.
