My cousin installed 300 ft of black garden hose which he has
coiled on the roof of his garden shed in order to heat his pool
water.  We were just wondering if there was a way to calculate
the optimal flow.  I imagine that if the water flows through
too quickly it won't heat-up as much as it could, and if it flows
through to slowly we aren't putting as much heated water
as we could in the pool.
Any suggestions?
