There are several ways to heat a pool 

Despite Australia’s reputation as the land of eternal sunshine and long hot summers, most backyard pools benefit from the installation of a heating system. Swimming pool heating can significantly extend your swimming season — in some cases by months.

Much the same as air conditioning, there are ideal temperature setpoints for swimming pools, depending on the type of activity for which they are used. For leisure swimming, it’s between 24 and 26°C and a little higher for exercise, at around 28°C. Hydrotherapy pools are generally heated to between 30 and 36°C to deliver the optimum environment. Of course, these temperatures are not easily achieved without intervention and most pools sit somewhere between 18 and 22°C during the swimming season. Any heat gained during the course of the day is quickly lost after nightfall, leaving the pool cold again come morning.
