help heating a pool

I have a 24' above ground pool. I have a flat rubber roof that's about 25' away from the pool. I think this would be excellent way to heat the water & pump it back into the pool but I'm uncertain of how to go about this. Any help would be appreciated.

What do you mean by flat rubber roof?

the section of our house facing the pool is flat so instead of shingles we had a black rubber roof installed. It produces a lot of heat

They make a solar panel that you can buy and plumb the pool into, it would do real good laying on your roof. Just laying pipe on roof will not do much in my opinion, you'll nedd to have more surface area for the heat to transfer.

Maybe you could build a type of exhanger, but it would cost as much if not more then the panels.

If you want me to explain the exchanger, let me know...
