Solar Pool Heating
You probably own your pool for many reasons - exercise, fun with family and friends, a late night swim, unwinding after work or quiet relaxing moments.
But if your pool is too cold to swim in, you're not realizing its full benefit. Unfortunately, warming your pool using a conventional pool heater can be expensive – especially in the Bay Area, which has some of the most expensive natural gas rates in the country.
Solar pool heat enables you to more fully enjoy your pool without paying extra.
What is Solar Pool Heating?
Solar pool heating performs the same function that conventional pool heating does. The main difference is the “heat source” used. Rather than using gas from your utility, solar pool heating harnesses free energy from the sun to warm the water.
How does this process actually work?
Using your existing pool pump, pool water is directed to your solar collectors. Pool water enters the solar collectors at the bottom and rises to the top through the individual tubes of the collector. As the water rises through the collector, it is heated by the sun’s radiant energy. The water is then returned to the pool to repeat the cycle until the sun has warmed your pool to your desired temperature.
What are the Benefits of a Solar Pool Heating System?
- A more consistently comfortable pool temperature
- An extended swim season
- Zero operating costs – unlike gas pool heaters which are expensive to maintain and operate, the sun’s energy is free
- Zero pollution – energy from sun is clean
