|Gas Swimming Pool Heaters
|Many people put in a swimming pool only to
discover that the water is often too cold
to enjoy it. Heating the water in the pool
will allow you to use it more hours of the
day and for more months of the year.
A gas pool heater is the best
those who only use their pools
periods or who do not use their
a daily basis during cooler weather
gas heaters are an effective
way to heat
the water quickly; however, but
be expensive to operate. They
are good for
occasionally heating the pool
water for guests
or pools at vacation homes that
are not occupied
If you are thinking of buying
a gas heater,
consider the following:
- Gas pool heaters can use either propane or
natural gas. Propane requires a space for
a storage tank, and natural gas will need
a hook up to a gas line.
- Most gas heaters are large enough to heat
the pool water to any desired
regardless of the weather.
They will last
5 or more years, but they require
than either solar or electrical
- Gas heaters are usually placed on a concrete
slab in the swimming pool area next to the
pool water pump and filter.
A thermal heat pool cover should be used
with all pool heating systems. Without a
cover to retain the water's heat, the cost
of heating the pool will generally double.
