Solar Heating : EPDM rubber

Understand in 4 steps

1. Solar heating benefits

  To heat your pool you can use a heat pump, solar collectors or a combination of both. 

Solar heating has the great advantage that it can function via the filter pump, and – therefore – it does not require additional energy.  

The system is simple: the pool water is circulated through thin black channels, which heats the water when the sun shines.

Solar heating can be used in all swimming pools, large and small, has the best price/heat ratio and is the most ecological way to heat the swimming pool.

We use EPDM solar collectors, which are flexible, compact and frost resistant.

The energy cost reduction will pay for your solar installation in  2-3 years (ROI) .

2. Solar heating capacities

  The shining sun delivers 800W of energy per m², which is valid everywhere on earth.  

In Europe, we need between 12 and 20 kW to heat a 50m³ swimming pool with solar heating, so between 15 and 25m² of solar heating. This is valid for any type of solar panels, with or without bubble or protective glass. Don't let yourself be convinced otherwise because you will be disappointed.

With a surface solar mat, your water will be 4-6 degrees warmer than without heating.

If there is no sun, the collectors will not give off heat.

3. Solar heating installation

  The solar panels are pre-assembled, and click into each other. The available standard lengths are 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 meters. We also produce to measure. The collectors have 32, 38mm and 50mm connections to glue. 

The installation is often done on the roof of a garden shed or car port. We advise you to first place a concrete grid, and fix the solar collectors with our polyester tapes  on the grid.

The ideal location is a 30° angle to the south. By placing the sensors horizontally, only 10% of capacity is lost.

   Important note for UK and Ireland customers

Suitable metric to UK inch standard adapters will be provided upon delivery without extra charge

4. Solar heating distribution and automation


  The solar heating is regulated by a 3-way valve, manual  or automatic  .

The automatic valve diverts the water to the sensors as soon as the temperature of the sensors is higher than the water temperature.

At a temperature of 32°C (adjustable), the valve will send the water directly to the pool.

We have automatic, simple and Wifi valves. All valves are 100% pre-assembled. 

In a combined heat pump and solar collector installation, the water is first passed through the solar collector. The heat pump is set at 2-4°C less than normal (setpoint 24-26°C).

The life time of solar collectors is 10-20 years.
