Solar Pool Heating Do-It-Yourself

Most pool owners experience their investment being too cold to swim in, even though the days are sunny and hot. All that can be changed with the installation of a Solar Pool Heating System. Solar heating is the most cost effective and safest way to heat your pool. Solar Heating is inexpensive to install and thereafter free to run and leaves no carbon footprint. The unique design uses the maximum efficiency of the sun. The panel is designed that you get heat from the sun and heat from the roof. Once installed the system is hassle free and you are able to enjoy your warm pool with many more months of extended swim time. If you are the do-it-yourself enthusiast who likes to tackle projects by yourself, then this option is for you. Our installation team is available to do the installation for you in the Greater Johannesburg area, if required. About the Panels There is a 5 year warranty against all manufacturing defects. The standard size of the panels is 1.2 m (width) x 3.0 m (length). Custom sizes are available on request. Ideally the panels should not be installed further than 15 m away from the pool pump. The panels should be installed on a surface that is exposed to sunlight between 09:00 and 15:00. Pipes are linked, using PVC Weld, as the headers are made from SABS approved PVC pipe. Panel design ensures minimal effect on panels by weather effects like high wind speeds. Calculate the Number of Panels Required Recommended panels per water volume: 1 panel per 10 000 litre + 1. Thus, if pool is 50 000 litre in volume, 6 panels are needed. An alternative method to calculate the number of panels, is as follows: measure the surface area of the pool in metre (length x width). It is assumed that the average depth of the pool is 1.5 m. Divide the surface area (length x width) of the pool by 3.6. This will give you the number of panels. Example: pool size: 3 m x 6 m = 18 square metre. Divide 18 by 3.6 = 5. You will require 5 panels. You can obtain all the components (panels, pipes, PVC connectors, vacuum breakers, non-return valves etc.) from us. Please contact me for more information or a quotation.
