It depends somewhat on your area of the country, how fast you want to heat it, and if you want to heat it throughout the winter.

Basically, anywhere between a 60-100k btu heater.

Hayward makes a 100K BTU heater that would fit your needs well. It's under $600, and doesn't require hard wiring.

You can do a google search for "Hayward H100IDP1" and come up with different vendors.

Depending on how much water is in the pool depends on how quickly it will warm up. It should raise the tempurature a few degrees per hour.

The heater will burn just over a gallon of propane an hour (continuously burning). Mind you, just because the heater is turned "on" doesn't mean it's burning. It will use the most to bring the water to the desired temperture. Once it reaches the set point, it will run to maintain it.

To give you an exact amount on how much you will end up using is almost impossible. It will depend on the tempurature set point, how much sun the pool gets. Your climate. How much rain you get, just to name a few of the variables that will effect what it will run you in usage.
