The Heliocol system uses collector panels mounted on a house roof, ground rack, pool maintenance building or pergola to warm pool water as it passes through the collectors. Collectors are constructed from header pipes and a series of small tubes and exposed to the sun. Heat from the sun is absorbed by the water and results in increased pool water temperatures: from 5 to 15 degrees above normal pool temperatures. In spring and late fall, a solar pool blanket used in conjunction with the Heliocol solar pool heater will raise the pool temperature from 15 to 25 degrees. The number of collectors depends on the surface area of the pool, available mounting space, and mounting direction (south is best). For an average residential pool, seven 4 ft x 12 ft collectors is normal. An optional electronic controller senses the appropriate weather & temperature conditions and diverts the water flow through the collectors and back into the pool.
If you’re not already heating your pool, this system will extend your swim season by months! If you’re currently heating your pool with gas or propane, you won’t believe the savings you’ll get from this system.
