Pool Heating Ascetics

FAFCO seems to make one of the better looking collectors I've seen..
MEIt's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.0
helio-pool, looks more like a standard collector. Is it the tubes or the black color? Many or the new flat plate collectors use a purple colored absorber, looks a bit different than a black box.

Pool (or and Solar) Heating Ascetics
Have you looked into Velux Flat Plate Collectors? In My opinion one of the better BIST (Building Integrated Solar Thermal) collectors on the American Market.
