When incorporating solar heating as part of your swimming pool system, there are three main set ups that can be configured. These are:
In this system, it is a one pump system and therefore, the pool is being heated for free.
Water is drawn from the pool to the main filter and pump, then to the motorized valve which pushes the cool water to the solar panels. Then returning warm water back to the pool via a heater (optional) and the chlorinator.
The integrated swimming pool filter generates vacuum negative pressure through the operation of the motor and the pump, and sucks the unfiltered water in the swimming pool from the water inlet to the filter.
After filtering, with the help of a booster (solar) pump, water passes through the solar panels (if there is solar gain available) and then returns warm water back to the pool via a heater (optional) and the chlorinator. This forms a large clockwise complete cycle.
The cycle is completed in the swimming pool with little energy loss. The equipment adopts advanced simple cleaning and convenient operation to save water resources.
Stand alone systems (independent systems) run a small independent pump, typically for 8 hours per day and require separate solar suction and return lines.
The water is drawn from the pool to the pump, up to the solar panels and warm water returns to the pool. This is a simple pool set up.
