pool solar heating - coils

Hi, I've seen people who have coils of hose on their roof for heating swimming pools -- does this work??? -- how much hose would be required??? Any info greatly appreciated.

I have tried it that way and it works some but not what you think. Get and use the roof panels they have many small tubes in them and get so much more heat from the sun 8 to 12 panels work fine on a 15 X 30 pool.

Go with 4x8 4x10 or 4x12 flat plastic panels they have a better transfer rate of heat- Fafco, Sealed Air, Heliocol, Solar Industries have all been around for 20 or so years.
