If you are inclined to keep your swimming pool heated, solar for your swimming pool will save a lot of money. It also uses no fossil fuels to produce the heat. It is a clean and green way to heat your pool.
Warmer water is just more enjoyable. Swimmers tend to stay in the water longer and use the pool more often if the temperature is higher.
It is a great way to pre-heat the spa. We just set the controls to isolate the spa with the solar water. This way the spa is much closer to your target temperature which saves money.
How Swimming Pool Solar Works
Solar panels are installed on your roof typically. The swimming pool water is redirect via valves to go up on the roof. The sun heats the water and that heated water is redirected to the pool or spa. Typically there is a temperature sensor installed on the roof and another in the pool plumbing. A solar monitor will detect when the roof water temperature has reached a certain threshold over the swimming pool water. When that threshold is met the solar monitor opens a valve to allow the hotter water on the roof to enter the pool. To learn more click on the following link… Swimming Pool Solar Information.
Swimming Pool Solar Cost
There are several factors that determine the cost of a solar system. Some include the size of the pool, the distance of the pool equipment to the roof access, and the direction that your roofline faces. If you would like a free quote, click the following link . . Swimming Pool Solar Quote
Vanishing edge pools are also sometimes called Infinity Pools, Endless Pools, and Zero Edge Pools.
Vanishing Edge Pools have one or multiple sides that overflow in to a catch basin. From the catch basin the water is pumped back in to the main vessel. As it reaches capacity the pool overflows.
Typically the downhill side of the pool is arched further enhancing the effect and making the pool look infinite or endless. Since these pools are typically built on a slope they are engineered to have a stronger free-standing wall and sometimes include a key-way to prevent sliding.
The basin is built over sized to account for bather load. As people enter the pool water is displaced. The water level in a typical pool just rises to account for the additional volume. Since these pools have a lowered edge on at least one side the water flows to the basin. We suggest leaving the edge pump on while swimming so that the added water is pumped back to the main vessel.
