Above Ground Pool Solar Heater

When the world first embraced solar energy, it was through large panes of glass used in building construction, with the added incentive of properties that could generate electricity – and save us a fortune on energy bills. Indeed solar energy has come a long way since we first heard about solar panels, and the endless benefits they bring. The evolution of technology has meant that solar energy is now used to power an abundance of products from radios, to above ground pool solar heaters.

The main benefits of purchasing an above ground pool solar heater (over a gas or electrical counterpart) lie within the cost-cutting advantages relative to fuel. Electrical pool heaters vary greatly in terms of wattage and power-output, to the extent that the 14, 16 and 18kW models can be extortionate when run on a daily basis during the summer.

This is all the more noticeable if you have a large outdoor pool with an above-average volume (usually above 12,500 litres). Your electrical heater will be harnessing far greater quantities of electricity to power, more so if you require a consistent high temperature. Gas heaters similarly “eat” large quantities of fuel.

When gas is burnt, only a percentage of the energy created is used to power the heater. The rest becomes bio-fuel or oxides, a side-effect of burning gas. These are of no use to the heater and simply get emitted into the atmosphere.

Secondary benefits (and by no means less important) are the reduced impacts your heating production is causing to the environment. Fossil fuels such as gas and propane emit noxious substances when burnt, which are not recycled and simply get pumped out into the environment. Electricity generation also has a considerable impact upon the environment.

Solar panels on the other hand require no other fuel or energy source, other than sun-light, notably ultraviolet rays. This solar energy is absorbed by the dark glass panels on top of your above ground pool solar heater ,and quickly converted into a usable energy source to power the machine.

Many people are still a little confused about solar generated energy, believing that a machine will simply “conk out” if sky becomes too over-cast or dark. This actually isn't true. Solar panels have the innate ability to store vital energy over long periods, and as they are usually permanently exposed to U.V rays – rarely dip below the level required to power the heater.

Embracing solar energy doesn't mean that you will be limited in terms of your heater's capabilities. The majority of solar-powered heaters can easily handle the 12,000 litre water capacities of both electric and gas models.  You can also be assured that your solar heater will act as efficiently as any other type, raising the temperature in a similar manner to electric models. Solar products also benefit from modern touches including temperature control and auto shut-off, powering down the system after a prolonged period of time (unless you programme otherwise.)

By purchasing an above ground pool solar heater, you will also realize the safety benefits. No cables connect the machine to a live power-source, meaning there will never be that fear of the plug being ripped from the wall by children, or tripped over.

The lack of a live power source also means you never have to worry about wet hands touching certain components, leading to serious shock. Gas heaters also carry some safety risks including leakage, flammability and potential side effects caused by erosion. These can all be dangerous, which is why many opt for alternative models.

Solar panel pool heaters are available in a diverse range of sizes and shapes, ranging from small 2kW models suitable for 8-10 foot domestic pools, to those with considerably higher power-output. The pod models currently on the market are among the smallest at just under 600mm². Made out of polypropylene and advanced non-depleting U.V stabilizers, you can be assured your solar heater will be durable for many years.

By coupling your solar heater with a micron cover, it is also possible to increase the water temperature of the pool by as much as 45% - ideal for the colder autumnal months. Perhaps the most attractive prospect of an above ground pool solar heater, is the fact it will continue to serve you and your family through the gradual “drying out” period predicted for fossil fuels in the not too distant future. Going “green” really is the way forward!
