How does Solar Pool Heating Work?

Pool water is circulated through the collector installed on a suitably positioned roof. As the pool water is circulated, it is heated from the sun’s free energy and then returned to the pool. The water temperature can be managed by an automatic control system.

This form of heating is very inexpensive to operate and is ecologically friendly unlike fossil fuel heaters (gas or electric), which create pollution through their harmful products of combustion.


How much solar do I need?

We recommend you match each square meter of your pool’s surface area with the same coverage of solar on the roof. This will give you 100% coverage, maximising the heat absorption from the sun and ensuring the quickest possible heat up time for your pool.

Can solar heating be fitted to an existing pool?

Yes, a solar pool heating system can be easily installed to existing pools, whether the pool is old or new.


Can I add to the system if I want to at a later date?

In most instances yes, however this will depend upon your current solar pool heating system design. A Supreme Heating consultant will need to arrange an inspection of your existing system to provide you with the best solution for your home.


What is the running cost difference between solar, heat pumps and gas heaters?

Solar is by far the cheapest option to heat your pool, followed by heat pumps, natural gas, LPG gas and electric element heating a distant last. The costs involved will vary depending on pool size, temperature, geographical location and local site conditions.
