PRODUCT INFO:

Athena Sun Domes are a solar heating system that will heat your pool and save you a small fortune in heating costs. These heaters can be installed on above ground and inground pools as a single heating source or to supplement a current heating system. The Athena Solar Heating Pods are especially effective on above ground pools such as our wooden and doughboy pools and summer pools such as Intex and Bestway. Each Dome will heat up to 7,500lt of water. If you require more than two it is more effective to install in lines of two. For more information call us on 01322554870

Just use the sizing chart below to chose the right number of domes for your pool, if you opt for more than the required amount you will see a significant difference in pool temperature. Each Athena Dome will heat up to 7,500lt, this compared to just 4,500lts with the solar pods.

Heating calculations are based on continuous sun exposure for 10 hours, which should increase the water temperature, by the following:

One heater for 2,000lt +4c, 4,000lt +2.4c, 7,500lt +1.3c

Two heaters for 2,000lt +6c, 4,000lt +3.6c, 7,500lt +2.5c, 10,000lt +1.8c

Three heaters for 4,000lt +5.4c, 7,500lt +3.6c, 10,000lt +2.7c, 15,000lt +1.7c

Four heaters for 7,500lt +4.4c, 10,000lt +4.1c, 15,000lt +2.3c

The more domes you add the more heat you will produce, adding one or two more can make a significant difference to your water tempreture.

Athena Solar Sun Dome Heaters are an extremely effective way of heating your water for free using only the solar gain available from the Sun's strong rays. As gas and electric costs continue to soar using solar heating to heat your swimming pool has become almost essential, even if it is as an additional heat source to your main heating. During the peak summer season, having solar heaters adding free heat to your water could mean not having to use your electric or gas heater for up to a month. Those savings alone make installing solar heaters a must.

PRODUCT INFO:

PoolSolar Solar Matting is specifically designed for pools in Northern Europe. This makes it the best choice of Pool Solar Heating currently available in the UK market. PoolSolar is so effective it is even used in Commercial applications. We have been selling PoolSolar for many years for the simple reason that our customers rate it so highly. When sized correctly PoolSolar will see your heating bill slashed if not totally wiped out. PoolSolar is easy to Install and works just as well on its own or in conjunction with Heat Pumps, Gas or Electric heaters.

Swimming pool solar heating has become more popular as energy costs in the UK increase and they look like increasing further, so PoolSolar should be an important part of your pool heating. There are several types of solar heating system on the market and the type of solar heating required on your pool can depend on a number of factors. Solar Pods and Domes are very effective but have some limitation on larger pools. PoolSolar is very effective on all size pools, the main disadvantage some customers have would be the amount of black matting required and the aesthetics of how it looks. We have this system on our shop roof and the design and style works so well most customers do not realise we have a pool solar system in operation.

How does Pool Solar give me FREE heat for my Swimming Pool?

By passing your filtered swimming pool water through small tubes of E.P.D.M quality Black P.V.C Solar Matting which then absorbs the heat from the sun's rays and transfers this free solar heat to your water.

Why is PoolSolar more effective than other Pool Solar Heating on the market?

PoolSolar has been designed and used effectively in the colder climes of Northern Europe for over 30 years. Unlike other brands that come from Southern Spain or Florida & California Pool Solar has been constructed to transfer the most heat possible from the weakest Sun's rays. This will allow you to heat your pool getting the optimum heat transfer from the Solar Matting.

Where shall I site the Solar & do I need to take it down in winter.

The most effective position for Solar matting is facing south. This will allow the matting to draw the absolute maximum of FREE heat from the Sun. The Solar Heating System can be placed on a suitable roof, on a framework or if necessary just laying on the ground and unlike most of the other Solar Heating products on the market the high quality E.P.D.M Rubber used ensures that yours will last for years and not be damaged by Frost or Snow.
