Pool Solar Panels

To own a swimming pool today, is a luxury that needs time and money to maintain.  The initial cost of an average pool today could easily be as much as R 50,000.00 to R 200,000.00  The interest alone on this investment could run into a few hundred rands per month. Apart from this you still need chemicals and electricity for the pump, totaling about +R150 per month.

Independent test showed that the average pool owner in the Western Cape uses their pool only 30 days a year, spread over a 3 month’s period.  In our modern society with inflation and a very expensive Rand, investing in a pool could prove very costly.  However, taking into account our over populated beaches, busy and dangerous roads, expensive transport cost and the  need to spend quality time with our families and friends, this investment is justified. With a longer swimming season, your investment can be used at a optimal level.

It is now possible, through the use of solar hot water, Solnet Solar Pool Heating Panels, to heat the water in your swimming pool with 10ºc – 15ºc, extending your swimming season with 8 to 10 months a year. Installing a Solar pool heating panel system, in most cases, could be done in 1 day without any inconvenience to the home owner. The cost of a correctly designed system should equal about 25% the cost of a swimming pool.  Beware of the company or sales person that considers their income to be more important than the results for the pool owner just to clinch the business. The price will be cheaper but the results unsatisfactory.  

As leader in the Solar pool heating industry and one of the most established solar installation company’s in South Africa, it is obvious that we favour quality above quantity. Trust SOLNET water heating systems, and installations in Cape Town to install your water heating system for you.
