Does anyone have plans or sketches as to what to build to warm my pool?

Thanks, Rich

The most cost-effective thing you can do is keep a transparent cover on the pool
most of the time.

Yes that I do with a solar cover but wanted to supplement that with a little
heat at the beginning of the season and at the end.

   Low temp solar heating is not hard. When you have higher delta temps
you have to worry more about losses.  There's a lot of unglazed pool
heaters in the wild. What you might build might depend on what you can
get your hands on.
