What kinds of pool heating are there?

01 January 2017

There are three basic types of pool heating systems. They include solar, gas and heat pumps.

Why choose solar?

Solar heating is popular because the energy to heat the water is free. You can harness the power of the sun to extend your swimming season.

The principles involved in solar pool heating are very simply illustrated. Imagine a garden hose that has been lying in the sun for hours. When you turn on the tap, out comes hot water. That’s solar heating: the sun’s energy has been absorbed by the hose and transmitted as heat to the water inside it. The hose acts as a solar collector.

TIP: Solar pool heating harnesses the sun’s power and extends your swimming season.
