How Does Solar Pool Heater Work




Solar pool heater works very simple way. The pump collects cold pool water from pool and circulates it through solar collectors. The collectors heat the water with sun energy. Then the warm water is pumped back into your pool by giving you more time to swim. For in ground pool solar heater the collectors are mounted on top of roof or on ground where it get most sun. For above ground solar pool heater the collectors are installed near the pool on the south side.

Most of solar swimming pool heater kit includes

(1) Pump

(2) Solar Collectors

(3) Control Valve

(4) Filter The collectors heat the water then pump transfers the water back into your pool. The solar collectors can be used to cool the pool water during hot summer days by circulating the water through collectors at night. The glazed collectors with heat exchangers and transfer fluids capture solar energy more than unglazed collectors. They can be used year-round in many climates.

The collectors first heat the water and then the pump transfers the water back into your pool. The solar collectors can also be used to cool the pool water during hot summer days by circulating the water through the collectors at night. Glazed collectors with heat exchangers and transfer fluids capture solar energy more effectively than unglazed collectors do. They can also be used year-round in many climates.

Installation & Maintenance

Installing a solar swimming pool solar heater is easy. Some people prefer to get help from professional solar pool system contractors to install their systems, and some people even make their own. Before installing, be sure to consider factors such as solar resourced, climate, local building code requirements, and safety issues. A properly maintained solar pool heater system will run smoothly for a very long period of time. Glazed collectors need to be cleaned from time to time to continue to harvest sunlight effectively.

Limitation

Solar swimming pool heaters are not able to heat pools on cloudy and rainy days or during the winter months.
