Pc Pools Announces Large Increase in Demand for Solar Pool Products June 15, 2009 06:48 PM

 St. Paul, MN - Pc Pools, one of America’s leading direct marketers of above ground pools and pool supplies for residential and commercial pool owners sees huge increase in the sale of solar pool products. From solar pool heaters to solar pool covers, demand is increasing at an exponential rate. A CNN Money report shows that gas and overall energy prices are mounting during the coming weeks and months. "Gas prices could increase to $2.41 this weekend," said Tom Kloza, publisher of Oil Price Information Service. "That would be an astounding 50% increase from November," he noted. "We have never seen a similar percentage increase from winter to spring." Crude oil prices likewise continue to rise.
Marketing Director Ted Robinson had this to say, "Pool heating prices have steadily been increasing over the last few years but we have never seen this sizable year to year percentage increase. This has caused many pool owners to seek alternative heating options for their swimming pools. Solar pool heating has become an increasingly popular alternative to natural gas and propane pool heaters. Solar pool heaters can provide 100% heating for a pool, and can save pool owners thousands of dollars within the first two years. For those looking to maximize the solar pool heating efficiency, we always recommend a solar pool cover. With optimal sunlight exposure, a solar pool cover alone can increase the temperature of your pool water 10-15 degrees. Not only do these heat the pool they also retain the water levels in the pool by reducing evaporation. This eliminates the need to continuously fill the pool and in turn saves more money for pool owners. Regardless of whether you have a solar pool heater or traditional pool heater," Robinson believes that the solar pool cover is a must. "Our solar pool product sales are up over 75% this year alone. In addition to the fact that the pool owner is saving money, they are equally as happy about "going green" and helping the environment by limiting their c arbon foot print by using less fossil fuels to heat their swimming pool."
