Ok. I have a 14'x 42" index pool and am heating it through 3 solar panels on my shed roof. 3 panels (4'x4')each of approx 200' of 1/2" iragation tube in each . All of them run in sequence and work well with an output of 2 gallons per minute. So here's my question.... Should I leave it as is or should I seperate each panel to run alone and not in sequence hoping to circulate the water in the pool faster. I attached some pics of the setup. Hope someone can answer my question thanks.

Does the 3yr payback scale to condo indoor pools? given larger system.

Also, how come solar heater only helps in summer not winter?

Hi there. We bought a house with and inground pool and solar heater already installed on our roof. Should we invest in a cover for the solar panels for the winter or can they withstand a Canadian winter - snow, wind, ice buildup, etc..
