Pool Heating
Solar panels are often the most economical way to heat a swimming pool. Compared to conventional pool heaters using propane or gas, solar pool heating systems can pay for themselves in four years or less. If you currently don't heat your pool, a solar heating system can provide an economical way to extend your pool season, starting earlier in the spring and extending later into the fall.

The systems are simple and relatively inexpensive. Pool systems usually use a poly propylene panel. The pool itself is the thermal storage for the system, and the pump you already use for filtering pool water will also circulate water through the solar collectors.

Solar pool panels work by circulating pool water directly through collectors and then rerouting the warmed water to the pool. System controllers sense when collectors are warmer than the pool water, and open valves diverting water from the pool circulator through the collectors and then back into the pool. The controller can be set to automatically keep the pool temperature anywhere between 65 and 100 degrees. The collectors used for pool heating systems are often less expensive than those used for domestic hot water systems, providing significant economic advantages.

We use solar panels manufactured in Chico California by FAFCO.
