Why heat my pool?

When you bought your pool, it was for many reasons like having fun with the family, entertaining friends, exercise, those quiet relaxing moments or perhaps even for therapeutic reasons. I bet, you spent a lot of time making the decision to invest in a quality swimming pool, furniture, fencing and accompanying items that go along with a pool. With this kind of investment, you are expecting to get the most use out of your pool. If your pool is frequently too cold (22 degrees & below) swimming is extremely uncomfortable. You are not making full use of your investment.WattPool p solar pool heating can effectively double the length of your pool season, by extending it to between 8 to 10 months of the year.


Millions of people worldwide enjoy having a solar heated swimming pool. Heating swimming pools is today the largest use of solar energy in the world and there are good reasons for this.


• Savings:

The initial cost of a WattPool Solar system for a pool or spa is about 35% of the use of a heat pump. Therefore savings are guaranteed with a solar heated pool.


• Reliability and safety:

Solar heating systems have no heat exchangers, that fail from corrosion, no fan motors or compressors to break down. no re-gassing, therefore no maintenance is required. Your investment in a solar heating system is protected by a 12-year warranty on leaking panels. Solar systems have been in use for many years.WattPool Solar systems use no gas or electricity, they just keep heating your pool quietly, safely and reliably, year after year using your existing pool pump.


• Protect the environment:

You can enjoy the comfort of your solar heated pool, knowing that you are using an environmentally friendly energy source, while you conserve our natural resources.

 

How Does It Work?

 

Make the most of your investment. With riwatt WattPool solar heating your pool can be used for eight months, or more, of the year. With SOLAR and energy from the sun, you can use your pool August through May.

Solar heating is now so affordable from riwatt WattPool, and still the value of your house escalates with this feature installed. The installation takes less than one day. No mess, no fuss, no people walking through your house.

 

 

Advantages of riwatt WattPool Solar Heating Panels

 

No moisture build-up under collectors that could cause premature roof deterioration.

riwatt WattPool‘s unique design virtually eliminates wind load, making it ideal for windy provinces.

How the riwatt WattPool System Works

 

riwatt WattPool Solar panels (made of durable and hard-wearing EPDM) are fitted to the roof. Water from the pool is channeled through the panels and is heated by the sun’s rays. The water is then returned to the pool by the existing pool pump. With such an efficient system temperatures between 22º C and 41º C are achieved. This system not only absorbs heat directly from the sun, but absorbs heat by conduction from your roof. In effect, the roof becomes part of the solar system.

 

How the riwatt WattPoolSystem is Installed

 

We measure the surface area of the pool(LxB) and divide by 3.6 and this will give us the number of panels required for your pool. This formula is used assuming the swimming pool average depth is 1.5m. Then we find a roof area that is within 15m of the pool pump and not more than 6m higher than the pump. We check that the area chosen, for the panels, has sun from at least 10am to 3pm.

Our technicians lay the panels on the roof or any other structure and secure panels with 2 coated wires per panel to the roof. The coated wire is secured to roof coping or pushed under the tiles and secured to batons/trusses. Once the panels are all secured in a line PVC glue is used to couple the panels with straight couplings.

 

Using 50mm SABS PVC pipe, we couple to return line of filtration system and run pipe to panels, glue to straight coupling of panel. We use the opposite corner for your return line to create cross feed through panels, preventing air locks.

We install a bypass valve, non return valve at the pump as per sketch. When the valve is shut the water is forced to take the longer route via the solar panels, when valve is open water follows the short route back to the pool.

We set the pool timer from 8.30am to 5pm for best results. If the pump runs at night it would cool the pool.

 

Please note that swimming pool water temperatures may vary from suburb to suburb and house to house. For example:- suburbs near the coast or in a wind belt generally require additional panels to achieve higher swimming pool water temperatures. Pool pump/filter sizes also effect the overall efficiency of your pool heating system. As a “rule of thumb” we recommend equal solar panel sqm to swimming pool sqm as well as a heat retention blanket.
