Using free energy from the sun, pool solar heating is easy to operate, highly effective and perfect for achieving a comfortable outdoor lifestyle at a price that won’t break the bank. But do you know how pool solar heating works?
Solar pool heating involves drawing water from the pool and then pumping that water through a series of tubes called a solar collector mounted on your home’s roof (or anywhere near the swimming pool that maximises exposure to the sun). Just like a garden hose left out in the sun, the circulating water in the collector is heated by the sun’s free energy. It then returns the water to your swimming pool at an elevated temperature that is perfect for swimming. And the best bit, your swim season can be extended by months each year!
Strip or Rigid Solar Pool Heating System … which one should I choose? Both Strip and Rigid solar pool heating systems heat your pool similarly and for comparable times throughout the year. The main difference is that strip systems are soft and flexible, and rigid systems are relatively solid.
Strip solar systems can be easily customised to suit virtually any roof space. Making them ideal for irregularly shaped roofs or those with many obtrusions such as skylights, antennas or air conditioners. Alternatively, a rigid panel system is more robust and durable. They are designed to resist wind and weather dislodgement, cockatoo attack, hail damage and freezing cold conditions.
