Why let your pool sit idle during the winter months when you can heat it relatively inexpensively with solar pool heater technology? Your family will thank you for it!
The Basics of Solar Pool Heating
The way in which most solar pool heaters work is actually quite simple. The following components can be found on most systems:
This is a roof-mounted device, similar in appearance to an electricity-generating photovoltaic solar panel, through which pool water is circulated and heated by the sun.
A filter is required to remove any debris that is present in the pool water before it is sent to the collector.
Circulating the water through the filter, to the collector, and back to the pool necessitates the use of a pump – possibly either the one you currently have or, in some cases, an entirely new one.
FLOW CONTROL VALVE
This device – which can be either manual or automatic – diverts pool water to the collectors whenever heating is required.
