Question Solar Pool Heater

Do they make a kit for us DIYers for a 13000 gallon builtin pool?

Do a web search (Google, Yahoo, MSN...) and you should find several options. I did a quick serach and found solar kits starting for a couple hundred dollars up to heat pump and gas fired units costing several thousand dollars. Some options are obviously more idiot friendly than others so I guess "do-it-yourself" depends on your skills.

Yes lots of them, buy panels from a manufacture that has been around since the 70's (there are 5 or so) if you want a good warranty

I installed with materials from these guys:
http://www.suntreksolar.com/default.html about 6 years ago. Probably several others out there if you do a google . Works pretty good, although I would need another section of two to get year-round swimming. As with all solar stuff, a good southern exposure is key.

Did a google myself out of curiousity. Surfed a couple of sites offering DIY manuals for constructing your own vice buying the prefab materials. Interesting idea and they claim very low cost. Might have to give them a try when my current system needs replacing.
