SOLAR POWERED POOL HEATING.
Solar Powered Pool Heating
Probably the oldest and most traditional use for solar power has been solar
powered pool heating systems, which work seamlessly with the sun to heat
the temperature of the water in a swimming pool.
Solar Powered Pool heating systems have been in use in places such as
California, Italy, France, Monaco, England and Scandinavia for decades,
and since they were first invented they have become ever more
sophisticated and efficient.
The first Solar Powered Pool heating systems were little more than black
painted domestic radiators, a glass case, lengths of copper piping. But
these days times and solar powered pool heating systems have changed.
If you are looking to make a solar powered pool heating system today
you have at your fingertips all of the most modern technology to take
advantage of. Non-reflective glass, armoured strong piping, and so many
more materials which can be purchased at your local builder’s merchants
or Home Depot.
There are a large number of Solar Powered Pool heating systems that you
can choose from and if you are creating one yourself then you can make
anyone of these from a very wide variety of materials, but the most
natural Solar Powered Pool heating systems are the best and they use the
most natural materials and equipment to collect the sun’s energy.
The least intrusive solar powered pool heating system architecturally,
esthetically and environmentally are passive solar powered pool heating
systems. These Solar Powered Pool heating systems can be located right
reasonable discretely and are surprisingly effective if you have the
amount of sunshine.
To help shield most of the components of the solar powered pool heating
system can be hidden away from view in the garden, on the roof of the
main house, a Summer house or a Changing Room area can all be used and
when you run the water heated by the solar powered pool heating system
underground to the pool it will be insulated.
When building a passive solar powered pool heating systems you will
need to buy a black plate collector this is a double layered absorber
that will allow a lot of sun to be absorbed quickly.
This black back plate needs to be encased in two sheets of glass and
insulated with fibre-glass insulation or you can use polyurethane foam.
All of this is then placed into a box and the box can be made from a
range of materials to blend in with your garden and its surroundings
such as wood, galvanised steel or even aluminum, whatever material
looks best for your location. You absorber is then connected to a
storage facility, which typically contains tock.
The collection of the heat can be controlled by the introduction of
an electronic thermostat finally you will need to add a pump which
will be used to circulate the water from the pool to be heated by
The most obvious advantage of this form of pool heater is that once
you have installed the solar powered pool heating system heating
your pool costs almost nothing. This form of solar powered pool
heating system is also very simple to maintain and because of its
simplicity doesn’t have the opportunity to fail easily mechanically.
