Solar pool heaters simply amplify the laws of nature. Heat from the sun will always warm the water in your pool to a certain extent. A solar pool heating system enhances this natural effect, simply and efficiently extending your swim season.
Solar pool heating systems have three basic components: a panel, a pump and a filter. A pump, usually your existing pool pump, pushes water through a filter to strain leaves and debris. Water is then pumped into a solar panel mounted on your roof, porch, or any other location with good sun exposure (optimally south facing). The water is substantially heated as it moves through the panel and it flows back into your pool, warming the water. Unlike solar water hot heaters for your home, solar pool heaters do not require a storage tank. Your pool provides all the storage required.
