SolarTherm Pool Heating:

  • Heating and Cooling solution for your swimming pool and spa.
  • Heat by day using the sun and cool by night using the cool night air.
  • A typical 10x4m pool requires 4 panels, 80% less area taken up than with traditional matting.
  • High resilience to damage eg, Hail and Cockatoo’s
  • Attractive aesthetic design
  • It’s even possible to integrate the panels into a pergola in the pool area!

The Solartherm Solar Heating System is designed to provide more advantages as an efficient solar heating solution for your swimming pool and spa.

The Solartherm Panel is enclosed in an Anodised Marine Grade Aluminum Box and covered by a hail resistant Polycarbonate sheet, making it a durable and low maintenance system. Heat losses from the wind are kept to a minimum.

Water is re-circulated from the pool to the Solartherm Panels by a booster pump. The Solartherm Panels absorb the solar energy from the sun into the water and return the heated water back to the pool, thus raising your pool temperature. A specially designed Solar Controller will activate the booster pump only when there is enough radiant heat from the Sun. This ensures the Systems’ energy efficiency and running cost efficiency.

In addition, the Solar Controller will also ensure the Solartherm Panels will be protected in all seasons of the year. You can also cool your pool by running the system at night to reduce your pool temperature.

One Solartherm Panel will heat about 7 to 8 square metres (sqm) of your pool surface area, this will vary depending on locational factors. If you wish to achieve a higher pool temperature, additional Solartherm Panels can be added to your current system (subject to roof space) at a later date, as the Solartherm Panels are modular.
