Knowing how to heat your pool is essential if you’re a pool owner seeking to extend your swimming season, or if you simply prefer warmer water. There are several ways to do this, and at J&M Pool Supply, we aim to empower you with transparent and confident advice to make an informed decision. We are one of your local pool supply stores that you can trust to help extend your swimming season.

First, consider investing in a pool heater. There are various types, including gas heaters, heat pumps, and solar heaters. Gas heaters are quick and powerful, making them ideal for heating your pool rapidly or for intermittent use. Heat pumps, although slower, are more energy-efficient and can maintain a consistent temperature over time. Solar heaters, though dependent on sunny weather, are eco-friendly and have minimal ongoing costs. The right option depends on your budget, how often you plan to use your pool, and your local climate. Although we don’t stock heaters in-store, we’d be happy to connect you with our trusted partner, J&M Pool Company, to arrange for the ideal heater and professional installation.

Second, using a solar cover or blanket can help retain the heat in your pool. They work by absorbing sunlight during the day and trapping the heat in the pool overnight. This is a cost-effective method, and solar covers also help minimize evaporation, saving you money on water and pool chemicals.

Last, if you have a spa area in your pool, consider a heat pump specifically designed for hot tubs and spas. These energy-efficient units can heat your spa area quickly, providing a warm and relaxing experience, even in colder months.

Remember, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution to warming your pool. It requires understanding your pool’s specific needs and your preferences. At J&M Pool Supply, we offer a range of pool heating solutions, and our expert team is ready to guide you in making the right choice.
