Solar Pool Heating: The Installation Process
Solar pool heating gets a lot of attention from environmentally conscious consumers because of its exceptional energy efficiency and suitability to the Australian climate. It typically costs less to run and will extend the swimming season by several months. In this article, we will explain the installation process you will go through with your solar pool heating supplier.
The first step of the installation process is a free consultation with your local pool heating specialist. This consultation process will involve coming to an understanding of the pool and its existing infrastructure and pump array. It’s also when the consultant can find out what your needs to determine the size and type of solar heating system or combined heating solution that suits you. Following this consultation, the consultant will be able to determine the components and necessary installation process required for your property and then provide you with a written estimate for your evaluation.
Most solar pool heating systems can be installed in one day, but in some cases, it can take two or more. The main factors that determine how long the installation will take is the size of the rooftop collection system, the plumbing arrangement and roof access. Some properties are particularly complicated due to angled or uneven roofs, second and third stories, and the associated extra time required to navigate the job safely.
Day to Day Operation
It is not necessary to run your solar heating system every day or all the time unless your pool is receiving very frequent use. Solar pool heating systems can be turned off over winter or if you go on holiday. If your solar heating has a dedicated control unit, you can rest knowing that it will regularly circulate water to prevent gunk and slime forming in your collector and heating lines.
