Solar pool heating

How pool solar heating works

First, your regular pool pump pumps water through the standard filter to remove the debris and dirt that would return to the pool; then, instead of sending that water straight back to your pool (as your pump would ordinarily do), we divert the water to solar panels where the water is heated by the sun. After collecting energy from the panels, the warmed water is returned to your pool. It will circulate through the panels for as long as your pump is on. Should you decide that the pool is too hot, you can bypass the heating panels by using an easy-to-access flow-control valve.

Essential parts

1) Solar panel array

The component through which pool water is circulated so as to be heated by the sun.

2) Flow control valve

The component that diverts pool water through the solar panels.

3) Pump

The component that circulates water through the filter and panels and back to the pool.

4) Filter

The component that removes debris before water is pumped through the panels.
