Note: use Google maps to approximate your collector compass facing direction.
* Use a time and area average, hence if half the pool is shaded for
half the day, the setting should be 25%. As another example if 100% of
the pool is shaded for half the day use a 50% setting.
§ This is the extension to your existing swimming season you can expect from solar alone.
† This is the anticipated total extension to your existing swimming season you can expect from solar and the specified use of a blanket.
‡ If your return line runs off the roof then down below the water level say, because it needs to run along the ground before going back up into the side of an above ground spa pool, then we need to know the vertical distance from the lowest point of the return line to the top of the water line.
