These DIY pool heaters are easy and inexpensive swimming pool heaters that only cost a few dollars and are great solar collectors.
Looking for a solar pool heating system to heat the pool, for a few dollars, why not try these DIY Pool Heaters.
We have had the craziest weather here in San Diego this spring and start to Summer. It has been rainy, drizzly, overcast and I can count on one hand the number of days we’ve had full sun. It is throwing our Summer fun off for sure. Especially since we do not own a pool water heater for our in ground pool.
The pool water has been chilly and so we started looking at different swimming pool heater options. There are different pool warmer options that you can purchase, but they are very expensive. After taking a look at a few different ones, I knew we could make our own for just a few dollars.
Benefits of making your own pool heater
- While shopping the internet, I found that the cheapest ones were just under a hundred dollars each. Hard to justify that cost when you would need 3-9 depending on your pool size
- Anyone that has a pool, knows that pool supplies, pool toys, and all other pool accessories aren’t the most reliable. Knowing that you’re making it for a few dollars verses paying a gazillions eases the mind about the reliability

Here is a quick video showing how can build my own solar pool heater?
How to Make DIY Solar Pool Heaters
- Place the hula hoop inside the garden bag
- Gather the excess bag around the outside of the hula hoop
- Using the duct tape, tape the excess bag around the hula hoop
- Cut your pool noodle in half, then in half again.
- Cut along the side of the noodle pieces into the middle giving a slit for the noodle to fit around the hula hoop.
Make as many solar panels as you can and get those babies into your pool. You will see the pool temperature go up and it will be like your secrete heating system and water temperature throughout the pool.
