Outdoor pools in North Texas do not use glass-covered (glazed) solar collectors, although they are sometimes used for indoor pools..
Least Expensive: Since solar pool heating collectors for outdoor pools operate just slightly warmer than the surrounding air temperature, the least expensive collector for this area is a specially formulated plastic material. These low-temperature collectors make it possible to heat your pool for a relatively inexpensive price.
Be aware that solar pool panels, while seemingly part of the renewable energy process, are hardly green. To quote one solar pool installer, "They will be in the landfill for one thousand years."
Color: Terra cotta and other colors are available to match your roof color if "hiding" the collectors is important to you. The solar panels for many, though, are a "badge of honor" and collectors are best when black in color.
