Solar pool equipment

Solar pool equipment

A pool filtration system that pumps pool water through a solar collector so that the collected heat is transferred directly to the pool water. Solar pool-heating collectors operate just slightly warmer than the surrounding air temperature and typically use inexpensive, unglazed, low-temperature collectors made from specially formulated plastic materials. Glazed solar collectors are not typically used in pool-heating applications, except for indoor pools, hot tubs, or spas in colder climates.
