Anybody have designed and used the evacuated tube solar collector
panels for swimming pool heating. If yes, can I get some information
on how to calculate sizing for a 15' X 40' indoor pool with pool cover

Using evacs for pool heating seems like overkill to me.
Assuming you are talking about the summer, commercial, unglazed, mat
style pool collectors cost about $ per sqft and will collect more
energy per sqft during typical summer conditions that evac tubes
will. Compare that to evac tubes at $0 per sqft.
You can directly compare evacs to pool collectors by downloading the
SRCC Directory of SRCC certified Collectors here:
Here is a blurb on how to use the ratings:
You probably want to compare the collectors for Service A or B.
Or, you could make your own pool collector for $ per sqft :)

The plastic collectors are not readily available here. However thanks
