We call them solar absorbers, many call them also solar panels or solar collectors – they are made from EPDM, a polyetilen material which is solar resistant and also not damaged by the chemicals in the pool water.
It is a simple technique, which was invented over 30 years ago in Germany, and since this time used a lot by Germans, Dutch and other Nordic Nations.
Getting more and more popular and known by UK origins, we can offer 3 different ways of heating the pool water up.
All of them require a minimum space of 50% from the pool surface. More percentage is possible, better results achieved!
There are the panels from SolarDur, invented in Germany, mounted in Valencia. Due to their flexibility in measurements, most effective in using up all the space. And in most of the cases resulting the best price/quality relation.
Another system from Germany, the norm sized absorbers from OKU give very good results even installed vertical. Very esthetic and also available in Terracotta color.
And the system worldwide sold best is the Israel made brand of HELIOCOL. Famous because used for Olympic games in Athens and the upcoming once in Beijing, very good in a very windy location, and also available in Terracotta. HELIOCOL also does all the joints and accessories in the Terracotta color!
To tell you which system is most effective, would not be correct. We are having fine results on all 3, the manufacturers promote of course that there brands are the best – we let the customer decide for which one he wants to go.
Estimates always given either by e-mail or at the installation point, all without compromise!
