It can be expensive to heat your pool using an integrated pool heater. Lucky for us this homemade lily pad pool heater tutorial by Home & Hues teaches you how to make a solar panel-inspired pool heater that requires no energy at all to keep your pool nice and warm.
Running a gas heater can quickly add up in costs as well as environmental pollution -- especially if you heat your pool every day of the summer. One way to significantly cut costs is to create these custom pool heater lily pads that harness the sun's energy to keep your pool warm. These DIY pool heater lily pads are made from hula hoops and black polyethylene film. As the sun shines the polyethylene film will absorb the sun's heat and recycle it back into the water.
