Pool heating

Pool heating with solar collectors and heat pump

You can warm the water of your (outdoor) swimming pool in a sustainable way by making use of solar collectors or a heat pump: the best justified investment, both from an environmental and an economic point of view. Moreover, it is not only the operation of the heating that is simple, but  also the installation is smoothly done. Linea Trovata works with OKU swimming pool collectors and with Pählen and Astral for the installation of heat pumps.

Do you opt for a heat pump or for solar collectors? Linea Trovata heats the water in your swimming pool in the most economical way.

As soon as there is enough sunlight, pool water is pumped through the collectors and the heated water goes back into the pool. The ideal solution for those who want to live a pleasant warm water experience and still want to keep their energy bill under control.

Once the collector is a few degrees
warmer than the pool, the whole system
is put into action.

How do solar collectors for swimming pools work?

How exactly do solar collectors work for your swimming pool? The controller measures the temperature at the outlet of the collector and compares it with the water temperature. Once the collector is a few degrees warmer than the pool, the whole system is put into action. The electric three-way valve controls the switch-over of the water, following the instructions of the automatic controller. Either the water flows back to the pool or it is first heated by the collector and subsequently flows back heated into the pool.

Ideal slope of 30 degrees
We can install solar collectors in different ways. The solar collectors are ideally installed with an angle of 30 degrees or horizontally on a flat roof. Solar collectors can easily be connected to an existing installation.

  • Financially justified thanks to the use of ‘free’ energy
  • Ecological
  • Enough sunshine in the course of the swimming pool season
  • Saving energy costs and quick payback
  • Higher water temperature (+5°C) makes swimming more attractive

Benefits of EPDM-solar collectors

  • Highly resistant to frost, heat & chemicals
  • Simple installation
  • High yield thanks to thin tubes

A heat pump extracts heat from its direct environment and thus brings water from your pool up to an enjoyable temperature. And this in a sustainable and ecological way. But it is also a profitable investment, compared to the financial burden of warming up a swimming pool with conventional energy.

For each kilowatt of energy it uses,
a heat pump gives at least
5 to 6 kilowatts back.

The heat exchanger transmits heat that is being generated in the heat pump into the water of the swimming pool. Inside the heat exchanger there is a conduit  with warmed up  liquid coolant and swimming water to be heated. Both kinds of tubes are in indirect contact with each other allowing one tube to pass on its temperature to the other.

A heat pump is one of the most cost effective ways of warming up a swimming pool. For each kilowatt it uses, a heat pump gives at least 5 to 6 kilowatts back. Moreover, the mounting of the system is quite simple. Apart from a solar energy system, the heat pump is still an economically and environmentally very justified investment.

Have your swimming pool completely warmed up with green energy by connecting your heat pump to your solar panels. The water is heated by the heat pump, while the heat pump is operated by your solar panels.

  • Upper fan for optimal air circulation
  • Special coated galvanized steel, ideal for stainless outdoor installation
  • Higher output of heat with the same input of energy input
  • Payback period for swimming pool heat pump is about 4 years
  • Heat pump also works at night at a beneficial night rate
