Pool water heating

A heated pool is more inviting, comfortable, and used more often – and with modern technology in the Bay of Plenty pools are not so expensive to heat.

Solar Pool Heating is Perfect for the Bay

We’ve found the most popular method for heating pool water is by installing a rooftop solar pool heating system. Solar pool heating is popular for a number of good reasons. The most obvious is the heat itself is essentially free. A solar heating system can dramatically increase the temperature of your pool, even in winter.

After an initial site visit to measure your roof, we use special industry tools to calculate the most efficient and effective solar hot water system design for your pool.

Heliocol Solar

Eco Plumber & Gasfitter offers Heliocol solar pool water heating, constructed from an exceptionally durable, food-grade polypropylene and ceramic compound. They are rated to carry running salt water or heavily chlorinated water at 80°C.

Each individual Heliocol panel carries an unconditional 10-year manufacturer’s warranty. Heliocol is the most reliable, resilient and high-quality solar pool heating system available.

Alternatives: Gas, Hot Bores & Heat Pumps

Eco Plumber & Gasfitter offers many other options including gas pool heating, heat pump pool heating as well as hot water bore heat exchangers (depending on your location)

  • Gas systems are powerful, efficient and cost-effective for occasional heating of your pool.
  • Heat pump pool heating is electrically powered, but you get much more heat per kWh of electricity than with conventional electric water heaters.
  • Hot bore heat exchangers make use of the natural geothermal resource that’s fairly common in the central Bay of Plenty. These require access to a hot water bore on your property.

We wish to acknowledge the awesome service provided right before Christmas Eve. Very grateful for your willingness to accept the job and get it done – which meant our son and family could enjoy a well-deserved holiday with running water!!! Please pass on our appreciation to the staff as well. We will be recommending your business.

We have had Dale to our place three times - underfloor heating problems, gas hot water issues and a stove service. Each time he arrived at said time and explained everything as he fixed the issues. Great communication and would highly recommend. Thanks.

I booked Eco Plumber to relace a shower rose. Due to a change with one of their appointments. They came the same day I booked them. Brilliant service. Prompt. Took all the discarded bits with them. Very fair charge. I will use their service again.
