SOLAR POOL HEATING - SAVES MONEY AND ENERGY WHENEVER THE SUN SHINES
Saving the planet ... one shower at a time.
Heating a swimming pool or spa with gas, electricity, or a heat pump can be costly. Maintaining an optimal temperature can be a battle when the pool constantly loses heat through radiational cooling at night and from evaporation during the day.

of our pool heating systems.
A solar pool heating system will help pool water warm up more quickly in the spring, maintain an optimum temperature throughout the season, and keep the water warmer as fall approaches. A system will extend the pool season for several months and increase the temperature by at least 10 degrees.
Sun Energy installs Heliocol and Vortex solar collectors. Systems use a pool's existing pump to circulate water through the collectors. A flow control (diverter) valve, automatic controller and sensor allow the pool's water to circulate through the collectors when the sun shines. When the optimum temperature is reached or the sun sets, the pool's water drains from the collectors.
Collectors can be mounted on a roof or on a rack on the ground.
How a solar pool heating system works. Pool water is diverted through the solar collectors using the pool's pump. A sensor and automatic controller shut off the flow through the collectors once the optimum temperature is reached or when the sun sets - avoiding overheating or cooling.
