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).

Another view of our solar pool heater
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. As a rough rule of thumb a single standard sized solar pool heater panel is effective on pools up to 30,000 L (approx 6,500 gallons) capacity. 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. 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 your pool or spa be at a premium then each panel can be made in segments to fit. A standard sized panel is 3.4m (11’ 4”) long by 1.4m (4’ 8”) wide and weighs approximately 35 Kg (77 lbs) once full of water.  These have been found to be the optimum dimensions for ease of handling, structural integrity and heating efficiency.
