A Solar Heating System is priced about the same or sometimes less than your first years cost of ownership for other common heating systems. Example below based on a 650 square foot pool in New Jersey.

ESTIMATING YOUR INVESTMENT
A Simplified formula for estimating installed system pricing is to measure the length or your pool and multiply by $135. (Example: 16’x32’ ft pool. 32’ x $135 = $4320. +/-)
Do it your self kit.
If you have decided that you want a solar pool heating system and are inclined to tackle the installation yourself then we can offer these components delivered to your home with a professional installation manual and your choice of a Goldline or Pentair control.
Collector plates are available in 9 modular sizes to fit any area perfectly. In addition to standard 47 inch wide collectors, we also offer 12 inch wide collectors.
The Heliocol modular sizing allows the most flexibility to custom fit any surface. You do not have to work around PVC roof vents as the Heliocol system will open up and fit right over vents! Other collector brands are limited to standard size panels. Because of its patented gapless design, the Heliocol system allows for more square footage in a smaller area, exceeding other collector brands by as much as 15%! Simply measure the roof surface top to bottom and decide on a collector length, then measure the roof width and deduct 6 inches from this for attachment hardware. For a 35’ 6” roof you would use 8-4 foot collectors and 3-1foot collectors to fill it end to end for a neat, professional look.
In addition to your calculated square footage of collector surface, each system will need the following components:
