Solar Pool Heating Sydney

Keeping your pool warm in the cooler months

Fortunately, swimming doesn’t need to be reserved for the warmer months only. With a solar pool heating system, you and your family can enjoy swimming in your pool even when the weather cools down.

What is a solar pool system?

A solar pool system uses the sun’s natural energy to heat the pool water, making this an environmentally friendly option. Pool water travels up to a series of solar panels that are installed on the roof of your home via a pool solar pump. The solar panels heat the water and return warm water to the pool. This process is repeated until all of the cold water in the pool has been warmed to a comfortable swimming temperature. For best results, a solar pool heating system should be used in conjunction with a solar blanket/ solar pool cover.

What is a solar blanket?

A solar blanket or solar pool cover is placed over your pool to help maintain the water temperature and stop heat from evaporating. Solar pool covers consist of bubbles that intensify the heat received from the sun. Solar blankets also help to keep pools clean and reduce the amount of cleaning chemicals lost through evaporation.

 How much longer can I swim beyond Summer?

Through using a solar pool system in conjunction with a solar pool cover, you and your family can enjoy swimming for 4-6 weeks before Summer begins, as well as after Summer. A solar pool system will typically heat the pool water by 5-8°C, providing that the conditions are favourable. Though, there are numerous factors that can impact the amount of heat generated, such as wind, which can result in the loss of heat through evaporation. Shade, roof pitch and the colour and material of your roof, can also impact the solar pool system’s ability to heat your pool. However, more solar panels can be added to counteract these issues.

What does a solar pool cost?

Pricing depends on the size of the pool, as a larger pool will need more solar panels to be effective. That said, environmental conditions and climate will also play a role in determining how many solar panels are necessary. Though generally, a solar pool heating system will cost $3,000-$7,000, with the possibility of systems for very large pools costing more.

Benefits of a Pool Heat Pump

When considering whether to purchase a Pool Heat Pump, it is important to first understand the how Pool Heat Pumps work. Pool Heat Pumps take the ambient temperature outside and convert it into heat, therefore allowing the pool to heat effectively with very little expended electricity.

If you are looking for an efficient and effective way to heat your pool, a heat pump is a popular choice for many pool owners. To help you decide, below are four key benefits of using a Pool Heat Pump to heat your pool.

Energy Efficiency

Heat Pump Pool Heaters are a very efficient means of heating your pool. Unlike gas pool heaters that rely on the burning of fuel, and electric pool heaters that rely on resistors, a heat pump pool heater uses heat that is generated naturally via the sun’s rays. Pool heat pump heaters actually generate more energy than they use, making them one of the most energy efficient pool heating options available.

Environmentally Friendly

Gas heaters require the burning of fossil fuels to generate heat, which in turn releases carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Heat Pump Pool Heaters on the other hand, don’t produce any carbon dioxide emissions at all and therefore are a very environmentally friendly option for heating your pool.

Cost Effective

Heat Pump Pool Heaters require minimal electricity to run, and as stated earlier, produce more energy than they use. This in turn helps to keep running costs very low. Initially pool heat pump prices may be higher than gas Heaters, but they make up for it down the track with lower operating costs than gas alternatives.


Gas and electric pool heaters may be cheaper to install, however they cost more to operate and don’t last as long as heat pump pool heaters. It is common for gas and electric pool heaters to last for 5 to 10 years, whilst in comparison, you can expect a heat pump pool heater to last for 25 years. That said, be sure to service your heat pump pool heater annually to maintain peak performance and increase its lifespan.

Pool Heating Options

If you have been considering Heating Your Pool, then it is fair to say that you may be a little confused by the many different Pool Heating Options which are available.

It is possible to heat your pool in a number-of-ways, and depending on where you live, to the position your pool is facing, can have an impact on the type of Pool Heating System you may select to install.

There are also other contributing factors, which you will need to consider, when deciding on the most appropriate Pool Heating Option. From the size of your pool, your budget, and even your preferred energy choice, you really need to look at all the options available to you, in order-to ensure the heating of your pool, is in line with your Pool Heating Expectations.

When deciding on how to heat your pool, you will also need to ensure you understand the exact heating specifications, to enable you to make an informed decision. For example, if you wish to swim all-year-round, then a Solar Pool Heating Option is more than likely not the way to go. In this case, you would be needing to install a Pool Heating System which can heat your pool, even when it is cold outside and when there is no sun present. This is where you would need to consider a continuous pool heating source via either an Electric Pump or Gas Pool Heating system. This type of pool heating system could be quite expensive, not only to supply and install, but also the energy consumption to heat your pool, would be quite significant, and not for everyone.

However, if you would still like to extend your swimming season by a couple to a few months each year, then a Solar Pool Heating System, would certainly be the way to go. A Solar Pool Heating Option, has the following benefits:

  • Inexpensive to supply and install
  • Provides a consistent flow of heated water when the sun is out
  • Is extremely cheap to run, as the Sun is free
  • Is easy to service and maintain

Additionally, if you don’t have the budget to install a Solar Pool Heating System but you would still like to keep the water in your pool insulated and warmer to a certain degree, then you should consider a Daisy Pool Blanket.  A Pool Blanket, traps the heat in the pool, and helps to conserve water and may also extend your swimming season as well.

Daisy Pool Covers, also help to support the effectiveness of your Solar Pool Heating System, as it also eliminates 97% of pool water evaporation.

When deciding on a Pool Heating Option, you should also take-into-account, the quality and reliability of the Pool Heating Products. Ensure your Pool Heating System, has a good warranty and is supported by easily accessible parts here in Australia, as you want to ensure parts are readily available during the time when you would like to be swimming.

It is also recommended that you contact your local energy provider to get an idea on the annual expected running costs, to see what you could expect to pay, for the various Pool Heating Options available, to ensure you will able to make the correct choice that will suit your budget and your families’ requirements.
