Why Choose Solar Pool Heating?

How does solar pool heating work?

Solar pool heating systems enhance the natural effect of the sun heating the water in your pool with three basic components: a panel, a pump and a filter. A pump, usually your existing pool pump, pushes water through a filter to strain leaves and debris. Water is then pumped into a Heliocol solar panel mounted on your roof, porch, fence, or any other location with good sun exposure (optimally south facing in North America). The water is substantially heated as it moves through the panel and it flows back into your pool, warming the water. Unlike solar water heaters for indoor use, solar pool heaters do not require a storage tank. Your pool provides all the storage required.

Maintenance, Repairs, Replacements

Will it be more expensive to repair or replace part of my damaged pool heating system?

Depending on which part is damaged, the cost of repair or replacement can vary. UMA Solar will help you connect with a dealer to discuss pricing options.

What kind of maintenance needs should I expect from a solar pool heating system?

A properly installed solar heating system requires little, or no, maintenance. Unlike other manufacturers—which use rubber hoses and metal clamps to connect their panels together—our systems are connected with a patented plastic panel clamp.

Rubber hoses require maintenance every six months and metal clamps rust and stain the roof. Our plastic clamps never require maintenance or replacement, never rust and are guaranteed against leaking.

This rugged design and reliability make maintenance costs practically non-existent on a solar pool heating system. As a precaution, simply check your solar heating system for proper operation at the beginning of each swimming season, particularly if it has an automatic controller.
