4 Ways You Can Be Heating Your Backyard Swimming Pool
There are many different mechanisms that swimming pool contractors and builders use to heat and maintain water temperatures. There are many benefits to ensuring your pool water is well-heated. Warm water helps improve sleep and ease joint and body aches. But, most of all, a pool heater is one of the most crucial tools for improving comfort while swimming. Well-maintained water temperatures extend pool season in Toronto past the confines of the summer months and allow you to swim in the night when it's chillier out.
At Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs, our pool supply store is equipped with various heater models guaranteed to make your swimming experience more enjoyable.

Natural Gas Pool Heater
Natural gas pool heaters are often the go-to choice for swimming pool contractors and builders in Toronto. While natural gas tends to burn quickly, these swimming pool heaters quickly raise water temperatures, allowing you to get to swimming faster.
If you want to install a natural gas pool heater for your backyard pool, Seaway Pools & Hot Tub is equipped with great options. With a wide range of sizes and shapes in stock, you'll find the right fit for your pool.
Electric Pool Heater
Your pool supply store may list an electric pool heater as a heat pump because they warm water by heating cold water in a tank, then circulating heated water continuously throughout the swimming pool. Consistently exchanging cold water for heated water, the heat pump is an energy-efficient solution to traditional natural gas pool heaters. Typically, electric heaters have a lower upfront cost and are more reliable throughout the pool season as they are affected less by external factors like weather conditions.
Solar Pool Heat Pump
A solar-powered pool heater is an environmentally friendly choice for your backyard swimming pool. Solar panels collect the sun's heat and light and convert that into energy that warms your pool. Most useful for pool owners who like their water temperature in the mid-20°C range. Solar pool heaters can be installed virtually anywhere by swimming pool contractors and builders for your convenience. While the reliability of solar pool heaters makes them a good choice for pool owners, some find that gas and electric heater options are more effective for extending their swimming season into the spring and fall.
Swimming Pool Cover
A swimming pool cover is used in conjunction with the other heater options and can be found online or in-store from Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs. When your swimming pool is covered with a solar cover when the sun is out, the cover retains heat and uses any additional heat from the sun to keep water warm by insulating the pool. Not only do covers support energy-efficient water heating, they effectively stop debris from contaminating the swimming pool water for easier pool maintenance.
