Can I use a tarp to heat my pool?
When used the right way, a black tarp can help with pool heating. For example, when using the black hose trick, you can lay your black hoses on a black tarp. This can help generate more heat.
What temperature do you heat a pool?
Set your pool heater’s thermostat to a temperature between 78°F and 82°F (26°C and 28°C) to keep the majority of swimmers comfortable. Maybe a little cooler if you’re in an area with very hot summers, or a little warmer if you live in a milder climate.
Does a solar blanket heat a pool?
Liquid solar blankets are not meant to heat your pool or replace your heater, they simply retain the warmth from the sun therefore keeping the water warmer for longer and preventing heat evaporation. Less evaporation of course means having to add water to the pool less frequently, resulting in cost and energy savings.
How long does it take to heat a pool 10 degrees?
To heat, an average pool (10-12K Gallon) with no solar cover typically takes 8-14 hours. By adding a solar blanket to your pool during heating you will greatly increase the efficiency of the heating process and keep evaporative heat loss to a minimum.
How many hours of sun should a pool get?
Are there any trees or buildings that would block the sun during prime pool time? Ideally, you will want to have sunshine for at least 4-6 hours per day.
Does putting black garbage bags heat pool?

Do Black Bottom pools keep water warmer?
Are dark and black bottom pools warmer? A dark bottom pool will likely be a few degrees warmer than a sandstone or white pool. The deeper your pool’s pigment is, the more heat you can expect it to retain.
Do black bags heat a pool?
“By putting black bin bags on top it attracts the sun and it warms it up very quickly. Within about 45 minutes the water is warm and stays warm all day in the sun.”
