How Does Solar Power Warm A Pool?

SOLARPRO uses standard methods to heat  swimming pool water. As is normally done, we insert the required number of solar panels within the existing cycle used for filtration.


In the diagram, you can see how this works:



When Should The Heating Cycle Run?

The best time for both filtration and heating is from 9.30 in the morning to 4.30 in the afternoon.

Don’t Cool Your Pool, Instead Of Heating It!

It is important not to circulate pool water through the heating panels outside the recommended period. Without the heat of the sun, the water will be cooled, not heated.

Timer are set so that water flows through the solar panels only when the sun is at its hottest.

Choosing The Right Pump And Filter Is Very Important

Both horizontal and vertical distances between your pool and the location of the solar heating panels should be considered.  


This applies if your home is:




Does Pool Water Ever Get Too Hot?

Occasionally, yes. But if this happens, you can simply close the By-Pass Valve. The water will then flow from the filter back to the pool, without passing through the heating panels.

Solar panels heat water from the pool.
