What’s Solar Pool Heating?
Solar pool heating systems work through installation of solar collector on your roof. Pool water is pumped up to the roof where it’s heated up by UV rays and returned to your pool at a warmer temperature. You can control the system so it functions manually or automatically. Automation is achieved through the use of a digital controller that’s easy to function.

Solar pool heating systems can suit any household, old and new. However, before you go buying the first solar pool heating system you see, there’s a few of factors you should consider:
- How Warm You Want Your Pool
- Size of Your Pool
- Size of Your Ground/Roof
- Your Roof’s Shape and Material
- How Often You Wish to Swim During the Year
- Your Climate
