How Solar Pool Heating Works

Solar pool heating works best when it’s installed for optimum efficiency, energy and cost-saving benefits. At WA Pool Heating, our experienced technicians have the skills and know-how to ensure your solar pool system not only works properly but also gives you the best possible results.


1. Solar Collector to Maximise Solar Energy

Your Solar Collector will be strategically installed to maximise the available energy.


2. Solar System with Maximum Efficiency

3 manifold lines will be installed to ensure an even heating pattern across the collector. This will eliminate any airlocks which could otherwise reduce the capacity of the system. We will keep your solar system working at maximum efficiency.


3. Solar Pool Pump Flows Water Through Collector and Back to Pool

The size of the solar collector is generally the same as your pool’s surface area. We’ll install a solar pool pump to pump the pool water into the small pipes of the collector, heating it and returning it to the pool, warmed by free energy from the sun.


4. Solar Controller Ensures Perfect Water Temperature

The cycle continues until the water has reached your pre-set temperature. The solar controller (or solar Computer) then stops the pump and will only re-start it once the water temperature has cooled down to just below the pre-set temperature. The cycle then starts again to keep your solar swimming pool at the perfect temperature.


5. Winter Mode

The solar controller is also equipped with a winter mode to save electricity and keep the system running at its best.
