Low Cost DIY Solar Pool Heater
Plans and Construction Manual
Add months of use every year to your swimming pool or outdoor spa. If an 11 year old boy can build one then anyone can.
No special tools or skills are required to complete this project. We supply plans and a comprehensive set of clearly illustrated instructions to guide you every step of the way. All materials are available from hardware stores and garden shops. Itís as easy as ABC so give it a go.

Construction costs approximately $100 to $150 for the panel and between $30 and $60 for a circulation pump. Prices tend to vary from one country to the next but most fall within this range. Please note that although we are an Australian company the above prices are quoted in American dollars (US dollars are more familiar to the majority of our international clientele).
A Green solution to your pool heating needs.
Using solar energy to heat your pool or spa not only saves you money itís good for the environment too. A typical circulation pump uses only 15 to 20 watts of power saving you dollars and using only a tiny amount of precious resources. If a solar powered pump is used then no mains electricity is required at all.

Our solar pool heater will raise pool or spa water temperatures during the shoulder periods of spring and autumn adding months of use to your investment. Proportions can easily be varied to suite particular locations or applications. Each standard solar pool heater panel has 12 heating elements but extra elements or multiple solar pool heater panels can be used for increased efficiency or to service larger pools. As a rough rule of thumb one standard sized panel is effective on pools up to 30,000 litres (6000 gal) capacity. There is no reason why a standard sized panel canít be used to heat a 2000 litre (400 gal) spa, in fact this would warm the water nicely, possibly too much in high summer. Multiple panels can be used for increased efficiency or to service larger pools. The solar pool heater panels can be mounted vertically on fences or horizontally on a roof (this is especially useful if the pool area is well shaded). Should space around the pool or spa be at a premium then each panel can be made in segments to fit.
How it works - Engines waste considerable amounts of fuel (e.g. when idling, coasting or braking). By using your engines charging system to break down water into highly combustable hydrogen and oxygen much of this wasted energy can be recovered. OHH gas can then be reintroduced to the inlet duct via a PCV type valve. Similar to regenerative braking only more efficient. It works on diesel engines too !!!
