I have 2 friends with different solutions.

1 Pumping water up on the car shed roof, the water is then trickling from holes in a plastic tube down into the rain gutter and down in the pool.

2 Closed system (needs smaller pump) one roll ~50 yds black plastic tubing spread on the roof, this is circulating from 10:00-19:00 all summer.

Both located in Norway.

Yep, they work. Some are better than others. Think I paid roughly $1200 for the materials for the one I installed about 6 years ago. Came with a 10 year warranty.
