Now that the fall weather is upon us your backyard pool is closed until the spring season.  If your pool is due for a new heater next spring, why not scrap your old one now?

Did you know:

If you take apart your pool heater you’ll find multiple pieces that are able to be scrapped.  The heater contains several copper pipes that can amount to more than 10lbs. Currently at Upstate, copper is going for up to $2.70 a pound.
