There are various pool heating options available, the most energy-efficient and cost-effective way is to use Solar Pool Heating panels manufactured from high quality UV protected HDPE plastic. 

The process uses the sun’s energy to warm your pool in the following manner. Your current pool pump draws water from your pool and pumps it to your roof via two pipes that are installed to wall of your home. The water circulates through solar heated collectors on your roof, and returns the warm water back into your pool.

The panels heat output is dependant on the seasons hence to average the performance out you can expect the following heat increase in your pool depending on the time of year:

  • Summer: 7-12 deg increase in your current pool water temperature
  • Winter: 3-5 deg increase in your current pool water temperature.

If you have a solar blanket installed then the increases could be much greater as there will be minimal heat loss.

Why you should heat your pool

The average pool owner in South Africa only uses his pool for 3 months of the year because the water is simply to cold to swim in the rest of the time. By installing a Pool heating system or a heat pump (discussed later on) you can now enjoy your pool all year round thus getting the most from your swimming pool investment. You and your family will experience hours of fun in the pool instead of around the pool.
