Do you want a happy child
You live in Britain. Britain sucks for outdoor pools. Not anymore, this pump turns your lame puddle into a spa, and makes you believe you live in Florida. Whooo!. Takes about a 4 days to heat a 10ft 4,500 pool in spring. Your adoring child then smiles at you. And not this time from the delirium associated with paddling in meltwater from a glacier. Go on, end the suffering.
Used on Bestway 10ft fast set pool
So far so good. This does heat the pool but it takes a while. I didn't check the temperature before running the heater, sorry, I forgot, but it was icy cold, I dipped my fingers in and it was unpleasantly cold, you know that feeling that its so cold it feels like a burn?! Anyway we had the heater running for about 30 hours constant to get the heat to about 24ish degrees. I'm going to run it for about 48 hours constantly next time we are due some sun! My 7 year old twins played in it at 24 degrees, they were having so much fun that me and my husband got in with them. It wasn't bath temperature warm but it was warm enough that we stayed in for about an hour - this was in the cold torrential rain this weekend, (don't judge us playing in a pool during the storm, it was a right laugh) we only got out when the wind started blowing the marquee and lifting it and we needed to get out and take it down so it didn't blow away. I was worried that it was never gonna heat the pool but if it was nice enough to play in a storm then I know next time I can run it a bit longer and hopefully get more enjoyment out of the pool when the weather is nice! We don't have an outside socket, so disclaimer- I'm not suggesting anyone else does this, but we got a heavy duty 13amp extension cable and fully unwound it. I kept checking the heater plug and extension plug to make sure they didn't get hot - they didn't. I want to be clear that the instructions say it shouldn't be plugged into an extension cable. (All my other extensions are 10amp.) When I first ran the heater the water coming out felt very cold, I just kept the cover on the pool and every few hours I went out and swished the water round with the pool net. The filter pump i used was the one that came with the bestway 10ft fast set pool. I made sure the filter was clean and the chemicals were all balanced before I ran the heater. All in all, this heater does heat the pool, I was thinking it would only take the chill off but it was quite nice ambient temperature even during the wizard of Oz rain and wind we had! It's not cheap to run, it cost about £10ish for 24 hours. Like I said I'll be running it for 48 next time we have pool weather, I don't think it will need to be on everyday in nicer weather, once the pools warm I'm hoping just to run it for a few hours in the morning but I obviously don't know that for sure . Let's be real, if you want a massive pool in the UK, and you want the kids to actually get in and enjoy it without getting blue lips, its going to cost money. We filled it with cold water from the outside tap because our kitchen tap won't fit an adapter for the hose but at least now I know I can get it warm. This was just a little set up test before the school holidays. If I encounter any problems I'll update. Little update. In the rainy/windy weather this managed to get the pool to 32 degrees. It was a little pricey but I was expecting that and the kids got loads of use out of it. The last few days the weather was really hot, I refilled the pool and put the heater on just while the kids were at school. It cost a few pounds and the pool temp was again at 24 degrees which was warm enough for hot weather without any wind. I would recommend.
Read my review in full for in-depth detail
Ok so I bought this product To heat my 14ft above ground best way pool and the honest answer to the question does it work? YES! BEAR THE FOLLOWING IN MIND So, when you plumb it in-line you won’t really feel a temperature difference on the outlet back into the pool BUT, dont be disheartened by this as the water flows ever so briefly over a similar heating element to a kettle so not much time in contact with the heater element and water so only a very very very gradual temperature increase every time the water flows over it. Now....... once you’ve switched it on do not come back to the pool to check the temperature difference for at least 2 days, it will take at least that time to get a notificsble difference in water temperature. It took me 3-4 days of constant running to get 31 degrees Celsius. It’s also worth noting that if you are using one of those tiny little pool filters then this heater won’t work because it’ll end up overheating the heating element due to slow flow of water so definitely invest in the bigger index pump at the same time just like I did. I’m sure a lot of you are wondering whether you can use this on an extension lead because realistically........ hardly anyone has an outside socket near to their pool location lol. This answer is YES! I am currently using 2 (13) amp rating extension leads joined together (MUST BE FULLY UNWOUND) with the pool heater and pump inline. Please bear in mind the cost to run the heater as I calculated it to be around £3.60 per 24 hours running. I only switch it on a few days before we are due good weather or whenever we will use it, so it’s pointless spending all that money to heat a pool that won’t be used. Anyway I hope my review has helped you decide on buying! It’s definitely a must have as kids get way to cold too quickly without this heater. Hope you buy and have fun! P. Clark

Great
I'm so impressed how well it heats up your 12ft pool and in about two days of sun and it's really warm. It doesn't do it like professional electric heater, but still takes the edge off that really good and the kids love it. I'm not sure how long it will last as looks very thin plastic tubes, but I might mount this onto some board to future proof it. The plastic connectors are good quality and connects no problem to my pool pump. Very impressed and highly recommended for any above ground pool. UPDATE: It didnt last into the second season, seam on inlet failed.
Really works well
Great product! Works better than expected! And it's free heat! Was lookimg for a relatively cheap way to raise the pool temperature or our 12ft intex pool, so that it dosent take your breath away when getting in with the kids. I had already bought a solar cover, but that only heats the top 2 inches of our pool. So I thought I would try these heat mats. to see if they could heat the rest of it. I bought 2 of these and they work great. However, had to buy extra pipe (black) in order to have enough to place them in direct sunlight, but this helps heat the water on the way round too, (so added bonus) Helpful hint; you do have to ensure that all the air locks within the system are clear, to get maximum water flow and heat,, teicky in a black pipe, but well worth the hassle. I turn the pump on early in the morning, pretty much as soon as the sun hits the mats. In direct sunlight the water comming out if the pool was 24c. Affter going through pump and heat mats, it was re-entering at 34c. This made our pool a lovely 30c. The only negative I would say is that this made it difficult to get the kids out. All in all, does the job well for a really cheap price.
Brilliant
Nearly didn't order as some reviews were saying it didn't work but It's Brilliant. Set up paddling pool on Friday and left it running, through solar heater, for the weekend. On the Sunday night came home and it was like a hot tub. Need a lot of space to lay it out next to paddling pool and can't move it once it's set up. You can't walk on it so would have to think where it is going to be placed. Also can't be placed higher than the pool, which is a shame because I'd have liked to run it on the roof or the shed out of the way. But I'd definitely recommend it.

Really surprised how effective this is!
We have run a 12 foot pool in the past with a heat pump and never got the temperature above 28 degrees. We have gone for a smaller 8 foot pool at a new home and thought I would try this heat mat as a low cost way of raising the temperature. I know we have had some very sunny weather, but we managed to get the pool to a tropical 32 degrees. This was certainly well above even the highest ambient temperature. The mat is high quality, especially the connections and flow diverter, this is great as it allows you to pass through at higher volumes/speeds which is critical when you want to prioritise filtering the water over heating. Remember, you will need a pump to push the water round. We use the Intex pump that came with our original 12 foot pool and it works very well. Also, make sue you don't leave the pump on with water moving through the heat mat overnight... it is just as effective at losing heat if you do this. This is where switching the flow valve to pass through works well. Overall, really effective product at a good price and delivered quickly.
I found it better to turn off pump and let the water heat ...
I have a 12ft pool, It needs lots of sun, it was big about 1M square, I found it better to turn off pump and let the water heat in the Matt then turn it on pump after 10 minutes and the water was very warm, I have run it for 8hrs and only slightly lifted pool temp.
Cheaper than electric heater
We have two now in series and it heats our 10’ frame pool up nicely in a sunny day. More efficient that the electric heater we had from Intex and kinder to the electric bill!
