How Solar Panels Work

A solar pool heating system is simple to operate and requires no change in the way you maintain standard pool equipment. The diagram below shows the components of a typical solar heater and the steps explain the process.

  • Your existing pool pump moves water to the solar collectors.
  • Cool water enters the solar collector from the bottom
  • The water is then heated as it is pushed upwards through the collector tubes to the top header pipe.
  • Warm water is returned to the pool.
  • This continues until the water is heated to the desired temperature.
