How does a solar pool heater work?

Solar Pool Heating is a very straightforward process. Your pool water is pumped through a filter and delivered to the solar thermal collectors (the panels). The Pool Solar Panels collect the sun’s rays to heat the water and then return the water back to the pool.

There are checkpoints along this pathway. A check valve prevents pool water from flowing backward in the route, a three-way valve diverts the water either to the panels on the roof for heat or back to the pool if the goal temperature has been reached, and a sensor monitors the water’s heat to ensure it is returned to the pool at the right temperature.

Pool solar installation works as a single, complete unit and can also be used in combination with additional gas or electric heating sources.
