How much Solar pool Heating work?

Solco’s design is very simplistic. There are no moving parts and no maintenance is required. The panels are “hollow” on the inside. Water is pumped via the pool pump through the “channels” in the panels. The panels absorb heat from the sun and transfer the heat into water as it flows through the panels.

What is a fully wetted panel?

A Solco Fully wetted pool heating panel is a fresh new look at heating swimming pools, yet our CoruSol© design is proven over decades to deliver astonishing results.

Solco’s Fully Wetted panels have no gaps between water channels.  The water channels are inside the panels.

Each panel works like a giant heat producing assembly line. As water flows through each panel, heat captured from the sun, is transferred from one channel to the next in a smooth motion, giving you heated water so comfortable, your pool will be begging you to swim.

How long does a normal installation take?

Depending on the difficulty – Ie: Trenches, paving, roof height an average installation can vary anywhere from 3-7 hours. Normally an installation is done in one day.

How long will it take for my pool to get warm?

Depending on the weather the average pool with a SOLCO SOLAR pool heating system takes between 3-5 days to reach optimum comfort levels.

How many panels do i need to heat my pool?

REMEMBER, Solco Solar uses “FULLY WETTED” Solar panels – so the ratio is apporximately 1 panel for evey 10,000 to 12,000 liters of water.

The following table should help you to gauge approximately how many SOLID FULLY WETTED PANELS are  required to get the pool comfortable. (we do recommend calling us for a free consultation)

Are the Solco pool heating panels available in DIY Kits?

Yes, we supply you with the following when you purchase a DIY pool heating system

  1. Solco Superheat Panels
  2. The system pack (clamps, connectors, glue, PVC fittings, roof strapping, valves….etc)
  3. Piping, if required
Do i need to upgrade my pool pump to cope with the solar system?

The majority of pumps are strong enough to cope with the extra pressure of a solar pool heating system. There may be cases when Solco will recommend an upgrade of the current pump. This can be established by one of our consultants.

Can the solar panels be placed on my roof?

Solco’s solar pool heating panels are made from Polyproylene, SOLCO can fit panels on THATCH, CONCRETE, METAL, TILE, SLATE, SHINGLES and just about most other surfaces.

What if the water does not get warm enough?

Because Solco has been installing pool heating systems for over 25 years, we are able to base our water heating solutions on experience as well as technical know-how. A SOLCO pool heating system has no moving parts and is designed to do only one thing – HEAT WATER. If, however you wish to increase the temperature of the water, there a two ways of achieving this:

  • Simply adding more panels to the existing system – it is best to consult with one of our representatives when you decide to increase the water temperature.
  • Installing a pool blanket – generally this is the route to go if there is no roof space of it the thermal loss during the evening is greater than 5 degrees Celsius.
Do i need pool cover?
Lorem ipsum

Solco’s panels are designed to work without any external aid to compensate for inefficiency, but there may be cases where this is necessary. A pool cover does however, save on the use of chemicals as well as aid in the retention of heat during the evening.
