Solar Pod

£129.00 (inc. VAT)

Solar Pods are an ideal pollution-free and cost-effective solution for heating above ground pools.

Solar Pod uses “heat trap” (glass-house effect) technology to capture energy within the ultra-clear polycarbonate dome and transfer the heat to its polypropylene heat exchanger. Solar Pod’s clear dome also reduces the amount of heat loss from its heat exchanger caused by wind exposure. Solar Pod will make a noticeable difference to your pool water temperature when operated during the summer season {late May to September).

One Solar Pod is ideal for pools up to 4,500 litres of water. For larger pools simply install more units plumbed in series. For example, a 12,000 litre pool will require 3 Solar Pods (please see suggested requirement chart below).

Solar Pod plumbs into your existing filtration pipe-work and is supplied complete with 32mm/38mm (1.25″ & 1.5″) hose connectors.

Solar Pod is supplied complete with flip-down feet to enable you to position it towards the sun.
