If you live in a reasonably sunny locale and want to enjoy a comfortably warm pool instead of a frozen ice pond, the Eco Saver Solar Heating Panel System has your name all over it.
It utilizes a 20-foot solar panel
that’s 20 percent wider than other solar panels out there, boosting its heat output
. One 20-foot panel can be used to adequately heat a round or rectangular above ground pool up to 24 feet across or a 15 by 30-foot in-ground pool.
As mentioned, the panel works in conjunction with your pool pump in order to circulate the water
it before flowing back into your pool. Thanks to this simple and effective design along with the Eco Saver’s added width, the solar panel heating system is capable of raising the temp of your pool by 10 to 15 degrees in only five or six hours.
To top it all off, the Eco Saver features a modular design, so you can add more solar panels as needed to perfectly heat any size pool. With a low price tag
, the Eco Saver is a relatively affordable pool heating solution. It may take a little longer to warm up your pool initially, but it will save you thousands of dollars in electricity over the long run. What’s not to like about that?
Best Locations for It
Ideally, the Eco Saver should be installed in a location that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight each day. The panels can be installed on a rack, the ground, or the roof
of a building, but regardless of where they’re placed, they should be facing south towards the sun in order to capture as much sunlight as possible.
Installing the Diverter Valve
On cloudy or rainy days, running the Eco Saver without a diverter valve may actually lower your pool’s water temp. Thankfully, one can be easily purchased and installed, allowing the water to bypass the Eco Saver and flow directly into the pool.
To be honest, you can’t really go wrong with a solar pool heating system like the Eco Saver. With wider panels and a simple design that just plain works, why wouldn’t you go the budget-friendly route and save a few dollars and perhaps a few trees as well.
