Experienced Commercial Pool Solar Heating Specialists Servicing the Central Coast, Newcastle, Hunter Valley, Regional NSW & Sydney

NCS Pool Heating’s twenty years of experience in pool solar heating is in big demand around the Central Coast, Newcastle, Hunter and Sydney regions. When builders, commercial businesses, hotels and retirement villages want to install pool solar heating, Rob Littlehales at NCS Pool Heating is the guy they call.

Commercial pool solar heating requires a special kind of expertise because of the size of the pool. Hotel patrons, retirees and children at commercial swim centres are quite particular about the temperature of a pool. A heated pool can make the difference between a great online review and a bad one for a hotel, while for swimming teachers, there’s nothing harder than trying to persuade a reluctant toddler to get into a cold pool!
