The Solar PRO Curve solar heater for inground and above ground pools is the next generation in Solar Pool heating!

Solar Pro pool heaters are the most energy efficient pool heaters on the market. They are inexpensive to operate, simple to install, and environmentally friendly.

The NEW ‘curve’ solar heater design creates a MAXIMUM SOLAR collecting area. This is the most heat efficient and least flow restrictive pool heater design on the market. This solar heater generates enough transfer to increase pool temperature by 5 degrees in five days, extending the pool season! Designed for use on above ground pools up to 30’ round and small inground pools. Depending on the size of your pool you may need to use multiple units which can be connected to generate more heat in less time. Solar PRO Curve includes adapters for Intex® pools and has a durable construction with commercial grade collectors.

The Solar PRO Curve Features:

  • Unique Curved Shape – Maximizes heat absorption by capturing the sun’s rays at any point during the day
  • Clear Cover – Wraps completely around the panel to lock in heat and deflect cooling winds
  • 14 Collector Tubes – Allow for even water flow without the need for bypass kits
  • Internal Molded Baffle – Diverts the water through the panel, allowing it to pass through both sides of the collector to maximize heating potential
  • Threaded Ports – Provide flexibility when connecting to either above ground (soft sided or rigid wall) or in ground pools
  • Fits 11⁄4”to 11⁄2”(32 to 38 mm) flexible hose. Includes hose and stainless steel hose clamps and a fitting for Intex 2 1/4" (40 mm) hoses

For best results, your solar heater should have a southern exposure, and you should cover your pool at night to prevent heat loss. Use of multiple units will require a GAME Bypass Kit (bypass kits sold seperately).

How Solar Heaters Work

Solar Pro heaters pump water from your pool through solar collectors which harness the sun’s energy to heat the water before it is pumped back into your pool. They can be installed next to your pool, or on top of fences, sheds, or roofs to get maximum sun exposure. Unlike gas or electric heaters, solar heaters can be installed safely by the homeowner without voiding the warranty and are inexpensive to replace or relocate.

Solar Pro pool heaters are ideal for sunnier locations and smaller pools, or for people who want an extra boost of warmth without investing in a natural gas or electric heater.

How Solar Heaters Compare to Gas and Electric Heaters

Pool owners should keep in mind that Solar Pro pool heaters are not as responsive as gas or electric heaters and, because they’re dependant on the sun, their effectiveness is diminished on cloudy, rainy or cold days. The result is that solar pool heaters take longer to heat your pool, and are less responsive than electric or gas heaters. As a result, many pool owners choose to use solar pool heaters in combination with electric or gas heaters. This technique allows homeowners to use their solar pool heater in the warm, summer months and on sunny days while saving their more powerful electric or gas heater for the spring, fall and cloudy days. This dual-approach will help you keep your pool warm while reducing your overall energy use.

Includes a 1 Year Limited Manufacturer's Warranty.

Purchased 2 units and a bypass kit to install on our 18' above ground pool. It has only been a single day and we seen a small improvement in the pool temps. I was disappointed that I couldn't connect Spa flex or Solid PVC to any of the components of the system. I was forced to use the supplied hoses and steel clamps. Which I'm not sure how long will last? All in all for the money we spent I'm happy with the product. Today I placed a thermometer just under one of the units and it read 178F! I also purchased a pump timer from Canadian tire to turn the pool pump on and off every 30min through out the day. My thoughts are this will give the water a chance to really heat up before going into the pool. As for placement. I installed 2 units on a rack off the ground about 3ft.
