Solar pool heating allows swimming pool owners to wrap themselves in luxurious warm water long after their friends have winterized their pool. Do-it-yourself solar pool heating kits saves owners money on materials and the cost of heating their swimming pool. They’re easy to install and systems come with easy to understand instructions.
Most people think solar pool heating systems are impossible to fathom and require a degree in engineering. Nothing could be further from the truth. They can be installed by any home or business owner. With a solar swimming pool heating kit, water is diverted from the pool’s filtration system and sent to solar collectors.
The solar collectors may be installed on the roof of a home or outbuilding, as long as the structure’s orientation receives enough sunlight throughout the day to adequately warm the water. Pool water sent through the solar collectors absorbs the radiant energy from the solar collectors and is returned to the pool. The process is repeated until the pool reaches the desired temperature.
The temperature in a solar heated pool can be increased up to approximately 10 degrees. A digital solar controller can be installed within the system to automate the heating process. It provides a more constant temperature level.
There are numerous benefits to a heated pool that include:
• Longer pool usage during the year
• More cost effective than other methods
• Low annual pool heating costs
• Low-maintenance systems
• Safe and reliable
• Increased property value
• Rebates and incentives
There are a number of variables that must be considered when calculating the correct system size for each pool. Discount Pool Shop owner, Simon Mauger, assists customers ascertain the system size they need based on their pool size and desired temperature.
A heated swimming pool is a joy during the summer and a luxury to be experienced to the fullest during colder months. Do-it-yourself solar pool heating systems are easy to install with just a few tools. The kits come with all the necessary elements, along with instructions for a trouble free installation.
