How to Pick the Best Commercial Pool Heating

In contrast to regular backyard pool heating, several unique considerations must be noted to ensure optimum heat transference when looking for a commercial pool heating solution.

While some considerations are similar for residential and commercial pool heaters, the room for error increases considerably in a commercial setting. Therefore, it is essential to get in contact with professionals to ensure you find the heating solution that matches your commercial requirements and will last for many years to come.

Solartech Pool Heating Sydney has decades of knowledge when it comes to pool heating for business premises. For the most cost-effective and practical commercial solar pool heating system, our solar pool specialists consider the following characteristics to ensure our clients are getting the best solar pool heating for their commercial application.

The Type and Location of Your Commercial Pool

Many sizing considerations will affect a solar pool heating system, such as the pool placement – whether the pool is inside or outside – and the water volume of the swimming pool.

Solartech solar heating staff use worksheets and computer programmes to calculate a specific pool’s solar system needs to ensure the best-sized pool heater. Hiring a professional to calculate the appropriate solar pool technology is crucial since choosing the right-sized solar pool pump can save a facility thousands in unnecessary bills. As the correct amount of power will minimise the required overall run time and lower your facility’s power cost throughout the season.

Purpose of Your Commercial Pool

Next, commercial pool owners should consider the types of people who use their pool, how frequently they utilise it and typically what purpose the commercial pool is used for, as this will dramatically affect the best type of solar pool heating.

For example, a caravan park that only wishes to heat a pool during peak season will have very different requirements than an indoor, council-run facility.

Your Ideal Commercial Pool Temperature

According to the international swimming association, a pool for usage in swimming competitions must be between 25°C and 28°C and must be kept at that temperature during the event. On the other hand, the heating rules for water polo are much stricter, as the pool water must be within 1°C of 26°C in either direction.

While such restrictions only apply to pools used in competitions, there are still general temperature requirements for commercial pools. The maximum recommended temperature for recreational pools is 29°C because bacteria and other organisms flourish in warm water. As a result, most hotels and public pools maintain water temperatures between 27°C and 29°C.

Your Budget Restraints Compared to Value

Installing a solar pool heater can help your business save a lot of money on pool heating. Pool solar panels are more affordable compared to gas pumps, and solar pool’s offer minimal yearly operating expenses. In many areas, solar pool heating is the most cost-effective use of heating.

Plus, with the newest solar pool heating technology, both expenses and emissions may be further reduced. For example, this is critical for Aquatic Centres, which are always under pressure to keep costs down while meeting the highest performance requirements for environmental sustainability.

Solartech recognises the commercial challenges to designing a cost-effective system that also provides a dependable heating service, which is why Solartech delivers cost-effective solutions constructed for the harshest of circumstances, regardless of the solar pool product you pick.

Commercial Solar Pool Pumps & Commercial Pool Solar Panels

If you’re searching for a way to prolong the swimming season, a solar pool pump allows people to swim 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. Plus, solar pool pumps are considerably more energy-efficient than traditional gas heaters.

Solar pool pumps and pool solar panels absorb heat from the sun and pull heat from the air. The high-quality solar pool heaters we supply at Solartech provides heating for your pool all year. Pool solar heating comes in various model sizes, so you are sure to find a solar device that will cater to your pool size with energy efficiency.

Solar Blankets for Commercial Pools

A solar blanket is another cost-effective method for retaining heat in outdoor commercial swimming pools. Not only are solar pool covers cost-effective for their monetary value, but solar blankets are incredibly effective as the covers tackle the root cause of heat loss, evaporation.

Not only are solar pool blankets a protective lid for your pool, but they also absorb heat from the sun, which is then transferred into the water, holding your pool at the perfect swimming temperature. This ability decreases water evaporation and increases heat conservation when exposed to strong direct sunlight.

At Solartech, we provide Daisy Solar commercial pool blankets and rollers made of marine-grade aluminium and stainless steel. Daisy solar blankets come with a 10-year pro-rata guarantee to give years of trouble-free and dependable operation.
