Solar Living installed solar panels for my above ground pool in 2014 with such a short season to use the pool these panels extended the season from 3 months to 5 months.  I can now open my pool in May with a water temperature of 56 degrees and be swimming in it 2 days later (I do not swim in cold water) that is how fast these panels work..   We recently heard a banging on the roof during high wind...

Solar Living installed a solar panel pool heating system this May in a previously unheated pool that was too cold to enjoy even in the height of summer. The pool opened at 56 degrees, the panels were installed and ten days later the water was 86! Solar living came out to our house and suggested putting the panels on a custom-built rack to the back of the pool in a unused sloping part of the yard. ...

Everything was better than could be expected

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Solar Living installed solar heat panels for my pool about 20 years ago.  They have a service fee of $80.00 er year that covers all labor and a 25% discount on parts.  When I opened the pool this spring, we noticed that the valve was leaking.  I called for service and the tech was there the next day.  He did a temporary repair and also repaired some cracks in the solar panels on the roof.  Just came back today to replace the part..  When I asked for the bill I was told that the part was given to them and there would be no charge.  Can't ask for better service than that.

Solar Living installed my solar hot water solar system 4 years ago.   They installed it in 2 days and it has worked perfectly ever since.   I recently noticed a very small amount of water that appeared to be coming from one of the pipes that feed into my solar tank.  I called Solar Living and they were able to send someone to my home very quickly.  The agent from Solar Living arrived punctually an...

He also examined my roof from Google Maps and could tell I didn't have enough room for solar hot water. I really appreciated the response and the professionalism. If I ever need service I will definitely contact Solar Living for ...

The hot water heater that is attached to the circulator was leaking water and needed to be replaced. I felt Solar Living did a good job. They were able to get the new tank and install it in a timely fashion at a reasonable price. We had a minor glitch that caused us to reschedule, but it was an issue with an employee's spouse being sick, so I don't hold it against the company. The guys were very n...
