Want ideas for a pool heater

Hey all , I have an inground fiberglass pool, 20,500gal, with a solar heater. Piping is 2" pvc that could be spliced into pretty easy.
Question is...What type ( name, size, etc. ) of diesel heater could be used to tie into the line and would handle enough flow to heat up my pool??? I have plenty of space.

Any Ideas??

Im not finding it right now but there are out there in used land ex miliatary oil fired immersion heaters.

I think someone is reproducing them now too.

What are your goals? Swimming? When?

I'd encourage looking for some solar pool heaters.

It would probably take some space, but would only require the energy to circulate the water.

Keelec, Thanks but I already have a large solar heat set-up just gets too cold here at night even with the blanket on the pool(over night).
Oh yeah, it's for swimming, keeping the pipes from freezing, etc.


Coachgeo, yeah I was thinking along those lines and will investigate more but I was thinking of making a b/d burner and converting a regular pool heater to use that, or something along those lines. Make it close to boiling so that by the time the water reaches the pool it would still be hot. Then the temp would be absorbed by the cold and eventually be up to 90deg or so and controlled by thermosat,etc.
