Swimming Pool Glossary: Heater

A heater helps to make you pool comfortably warm for swimming. Usually, the heater is part of the motor or pump assembly. For safety reasons, the heater's maximum temperature is 104 degrees Fahrenheit.

Pool heaters can be run with electricity, fossil fuels, or even solar panels. Solar panels are by far the most expensive type option, costing around $2500. Gas and electric heaters can sell for as little as $200 or as much as $2000.
