3 Ways To Warm Your Pool This Winter Season

As the days start to get colder leading up to winter, the last thing on your mind is swimming in your backyard pool. Although, with many heating options for your pool available, swimming does not have to be off the books altogether, allowing you to enjoy your pool all year round.

Whether it be using a heat pump pool heater, a swimming pool cover or a solar pool pump, ensure you do your research to find out what heating system is best suited to your requirements and the type of pool you own.

Here at Solartech, we have been providing pool heating systems for over 20 years. As one of Australia’s most educated and experienced pool heating companies, here are some of the best methods to keep your pool warm this winter season.

Heat Pump Pool Heater

If you are looking for a way to potentially swim all year round at any time of the day, your best option would be to obtain a heat pump pool heater. Heat pumps are increasingly evolving into a global leader within the pool industry. They are the most energy-efficient solution to heat your pool as compared to old school heating methods that are accessible such as gas heaters. What makes them so energy efficient is the use of minimal resources that are used to generate heat.

Heat pump pool heaters operate by relocating heat present within the air outside a heating unit towards the water conserved in the heating unit. This process is carried out through a heat exchange system, and the heated water is then pumped back into your pool.

At Solartech, we have examined and trialled numerous heat pumps on the market. We can safely argue that Madimack Pool Heat Pumps are one of the best pool heat pumps that we utilise. Madimack Heat Pumps are great for use within Australia as they were specifically designed for the Australian climate. Being able to run and function sufficiently with temperatures as low as -10 degrees Celsius, heat pumps are perfect for ensuring your pool never gets cold, even during the winter months.

Solar Swimming Pool Covers

Solar swimming pool covers are sheets that are situated over your pool to guarantee that your pool contains its warmth and stops heat from evaporating. They are also great as they can help prevent any winter dust or unattractive mineral deposits that may appear when your pool’s mineral levels drastically change due to the drop in temperatures.

Solar swimming pool covers function by producing a boundary between the water and the air. This boundary is composed of countless bubbles that enhance the heat received from the sun’s rays.

When creating a warm swimming pool during the cooler months, pool covers work best when working alongside a heat pump pool heater. With these two heating methods combined, you are able to reduce the amount of work that your heat pump needs due to the pool cover being able to retain heat within the water.

Our pool heating professionals only deal with Daisy Pool Covers. Providing high-level technology and offering maximum heat retention, we have found that Daisy Pool Covers are the most superior pool covers on the market. Our unique shaping approach allows the bubble layer to be assembled in a coherent thickness profile for higher strength and longevity for the winter months.

Solar Pool Pump

With a solar pool pump, your family can appreciate a swimming pool even when the weather cools down. Solar pool pumps use the natural energy from the sun’s rays to heat the water in your pool.

Water from the pool will proceed towards multiple solar panels installed on your roof through the solar pool pump. The solar panels on the roof will heat the water and then return the water to the pool once it is warm. This process is continued until all of the cold water from the pool has been heated to your desired swimming temperature. Our solar pool heating technology has progressed tremendously over the last 20 years. Solartech uses only the best quality solar panels that are built to last.

However, solar pool pumps are best suited for later in the year when we get longer days of sun. Conditions need to be favourable as certain factors can impact the amount of heat that is generated. An element such as wind can also affect the heat generated as it can result in a loss of heat through evaporation.
