    Solar Thermal. Simplified.

    We use your existing pool pump to drive water through the solar panels, where it is heated by the Sun. The solar heated water then flows back to your pool and continues the cycle until your heat request has been fulfilled. The system is controlled using a digital thermostat which allows you to set your desired pool temperature. A solar pool heating system can be used as a stand alone unit or in conjunction with a traditional heater.

  • Utilizing Our Sun

    By adding solar collectors to the roof, you are essentially increasing surface area of your pool. The added surface area from the panels allows for more heat gain from the Sun. This solar thermal process does not create any electricity, it simply moves heat from one place to another. In the photo to the right, the solar system is almost equivalent to the size of the pool. This allows the pool to collect two days worth of sunshine in one day.
