"RES installed a solar heating system for our backyard pool. They were incredibly professional, easy to work with, and available as needed after installation. This is one of the best investments we've ever made, as the system will pay for itself within 5-6 years (we're on year 2). We're only using 1 tank of propane a season now (vs. 6-10 tanks in past summers) - just for the very beginning of the season to supplement solar. Best thing about the system (vs. propane heat) is it's "set it and forget it". We just set the target temp and the solar turns itself on and off as needed. It also replaces the cost and headache of a pool cover, as the solar keeps the pool temp at least 7-10 degrees hotter than the low air temp during the night. We've been night swimming all summer!"
"RES Solar installed a Hot Water solar panel system for us on our backyard shed, for our 16 x 36 inground pool. Water temp will go up a extra 3-10 degrees when desired, from the panel system. Initial phone call, sales, and install were great. Opt for the upgraded Controller, Temp Meter, and Flow Meter... Thanks!"

"I waited 3 months to write this review, to ensure that I really had a chance to test RES solar's system thoroughly (also, i never leave reviews). My family moved to MA from NC, where it's much warmer. Needless to say, the first summer here was disappointing. Our pool barely got to 72-75 (and only for a couple days). We maybe got in the pool a dozen times the entire summer.
This year, I contacted Erica to install several panels in hopes that the pool would be warm enough for us to use consistently. I was very skeptical, but unless I was ready to pay for gas heating, I had no choice.
Erica's team was friendly and extremely responsive. The day after the install (Early May) was cold but sunny. You could CLEARLY tell that the water coming out of the returns was warm. My pool went from low 60s in early may to mid-70s in less than 10 days! We got to jump in May. As the days got longer and sunnier, my pool reached and maintained 80-90 degrees through June and July (it's 87 as of this note). This is purely incredible. We are in the pool CONSTANTLY! We swim at 8 AM, 10 PM and everything in between. I actually had to turn the heat OFF one day!
I'm a scientist, as so I thoroughly researched every possible option....and still was very skeptical prior to going with Erica. I have to say, this is the BEST money i've ever spent! My kids are ALWAYS swimming. My partner (who hates the cold) is now swimming at night with me. This was a complete success and has allowed us to fully enjoy the MA summer!"
