Above Ground Sizing

For best results heating an above ground pool with the Sungrabber Solar Pool Heater, follow the recommendations in the sizing chart below.

A properly sized system can raise pool temperatures 10-15 degrees during pool season.

Each Sungrabber Solar Pool Heater system consists of two 2’x20′ solar collectors. The chart below will tell you how many systems you will need for your pool. (Ex: if you have a 28′ round above ground pool, you will need two systems, which equals four 2’x20′ solar collectors.)

For areas with year-round swimming, an additional solar collector may be needed to heat your pool during the cooler months. You may order additional solar collectors from one of our Sungrabber suppliers.
