Solar Pool Heating

Extend the use of your pool during the colder months

Solar pool heating by induction is a great way to extend the use of your swimming pool outside of the warm months. Solar tube panels are fitted to the roof and connected to a water feed from the pool. Water is then channeled through the tubes and is heated by the sun’s rays and returned to the pool by the existing pool pump (which can also be solar powered). The panels are heated from the sun’s rays as well as the roof surface through conduction. This system eliminates the need to convert solar power into electric power first before turning into heat.
