Question

Can a tankless water heater be combined with solar roof panels to heat a 5,000 gallon swimming pool in Florida?

I have a small swimming pool in my Florida home and the solar panels are not enough to keep it warm enough for about 3 months of the winter. Can I connect a tankless water heater system to my solar system to keep the pool heated for those few extra months at a reasonable cost ? Dan Port St. Lucie

Answer

You could use a gas commercial tankless water heater to suplement heating your pool.The cost of the commmercial unit & gas cost would be rather high. Your money would be better spent up-grading your solar pool collectors to say Solar Industries pool heating systems www.solarindustries.com. We are a dealer if you need product we can ship to you.
