We offer Heliocol Solar pool heating. Made in Israel, constructed from food-grade polypropylene; it is the most reliable, highest quality system available.
When we initially do a site visit for a potential installation we do a full roof measure and then use a software program that will calculate the most efficient system design for your pool.
We have installed many different brands of solar thermal. Heliocol is easily the most resilient, robust and well-designed system available.
With pool heating there are several options ranging from a gas boiler to hot water heat pump (HPHW) these have their advantages and we have installed many of these systems. A key advantage is the ability to offer hot pool water during extended autumn or winter season.
We have found the most popular method is solar heating that is designed to your particular pool size. We can also fit these systems so that they heat your domestic hot water and your pool!
The most cost effective place to install collectors is on a north-facing roof.
The system that will provide the best value for your home is the Heliocol HC 50 panels. Heliocol has been manufactured since 1978 and, in fact, the first products installed are still in operation today. What makes the system so durable is that it is moulded in one piece from food grade polypropylene.
This gives it the advantages of:
- Will not breakdown under sunlight or UV
- Nothing will adhere to the product or block the inside
- There are no welds or joins in the panel and is manufactured in one piece
- Wind and cyclone proof mounting system, this is also a very attractive design compared to other systems
- Full drain back system design for total control and durability
The only way to ensure the system is kept as a drain-back system on your home is to mount it on the north-facing roof. This will give the correct level of frost protection and also give the maximum performance.
Other options include gas heating, hot water heat pump, or hot water bore which is surprisingly popular. Each system has its pros and cons that we are happy to discuss, mostly these alternative systems are more expensive in running costs.
As a further service we are able to offer pool refurbishment and repairs. We have undertaken some rather extreme transformations for old concrete pools converting them from old bore fed pools (which have failed over time) to the latest state of art salt and magnesium pools with new control systems, pumps & filtration, replacing leaking pipework if necessary and installing new jets. Providing heat to them making the pool much more pleasurable and usable goes without saying.
Consider us if you have a crusty old project pool requiring work as there are not many companies doing the actual repairs or upgrades to existing pools.
