Pool Solar Heaters
Use free energy from the sun with a pool solar heater for your inground or above ground swimming pool. Pool solar heating systems are an economical and environmentally friendly way to heat up your pool water. On average, expect a 10-15 degree increase in pool temperature so you can enjoy swimming earlier in the spring and later in the summer or fall. As long as you get around 4-6 hours of direct sunlight, solar pool heaters work effectively at heating your swimming pool no matter where the pool is located. Using a solar pool heater in conjunction with a Solar Pool Cover will help heat up the water more quickly while reducing heat loss and water evaporation, especially at night time.
Solar Heating for Above Ground Pools & Inground Pools
Solar pool heating systems are available for both inground and above ground pool applications. Solar pool heaters work by circulating the pool water through black tubes that absorb the heat from the sun. Installing a solar panel bypass allows you to control the flow rate and how long the water flows through the solar panels or tubes. Inground solar pool heaters usually require additional plumbing and valves to direct the pool water up to the solar panels which are typically installed on a roof facing south for optimal water heating. Above ground pool heating systems are easy to install connecting quickly to the above ground pool return hose to either solar panels or a solar coil. Whether you have an inground pool or above ground pool, Leslie’s has a great selection of solar pool water heaters to choose from.
