Solar Pool Heating

Solar heating is an economical and environmentally responsible means of heating your pool or spa water with energy received free from the sun

Effectiveness of Solar Pool Heating

Solar Pool Heating is an efficient means of heating a pool or spa for the majority of the year. An appropriately sized and properly installed system will on average raise the water temperature of a pool by at least six degrees Celsius, compared to a similar unheated pool. Solar Pool Heating will extend your swimming season, increase your swimming enjoyment, and allow you to gain more use of your pool.

How Does Solar Pool Heating Work?

Swimming pool solar heating is an economical and environmentally responsible means of heating your pool or spa water with energy received free from the sun. Quite simply water is pumped from the pool through a collector array, (which is normally mounted on a roof) where the water absorbs heat from the sun as it travels through the collector, returning to the pool a few degrees warmer. This continuous circulation of water through the solar collector throughout the day raises the overall pool temperature. It doesn’t matter if you have an old or new pool, Eco Solar Pool Heating can be retro fitted to just about any pool.

Regulate temperature with a Solar Controller

Optimum performance of a pool solar heating system requires accurate temperature measurement of the pool water, and the solar collector’s ability to heat the pool water throughout the day. Our solar controller measures these temperatures and controls a pump to circulate water through the solar collector. The solar controller is set to a required temperature by the user, and the controller then operates the pump to heat the pool water to the set temperature. Our standard solar controller comes with the following functions; Summer; Heats the pool automatically to the desired temperature. Manual; Overides the settings to run the solar pump for thirty minutes. Winter; Runs the solar pump for three minutes each day. Cooling/Tropical; Operates the pump at night to flow water through the solar collector for cooling of the pool.
