How to Build a Easy DIY Solar Pool Heater. All you need is 4 two foot lengths of pvc, 4 90 degree pvc elbows, foam pipe insulation, duct tape, 6 mil black plastic and some wire ties.

Did you know that you could go to Home Depot and buy a six foot long piece of foam pipe insulation for only $0.97? Well, you can. And you can take that piece of foam, cut it to any length you want, duct tape the ends together, and have the perfect foam wreath shape. Thank you Pinterest for that tip! I don't think I will ever be buying a wreath form at a craft store again.
