Pool heating | Solar or Heat Pumps for swimming pools

Solar pool heating systems are the most economical, and environmental friendly systems available that utilises free solar energy to heat swimming pool water. Solar panels are normally installed on the building's roof (not on thatched roofs), but ground level installations are also practical if enough space is available.

The system diagram below illustrates the basic components of a solar pool heating system. The existing pool pump is used for circulation of the water through the panels. A pump with a power rating of 0.75kW for panels installed on a single simplex roof and and a 1.1kW pump for double storey roofs are required to ensure sufficient water circulation.

Our solar panels are made from durable UV stabilized polypropylene with a life expectancy of about 12 years. These panels are recommended for use in all South African locations.

Fact: "More panels equals more heat!"
