  • It’s up to 20% more efficient at generating electricity than un-cooled PV systems.
  • It can even pay its way by selling surplus energy back to the grid.

  • Rheem Thermal Heat Pumps simply draw energy from the air and transfer that to your pool water using an electrical compressor, used to extend your season beyond the normal 6-8 month solar swimming season.  So naturally heat pumps work better in warmer climates and are generally not suitable to the cooler states of Australia.

Why Solar

Solar Pool Heating can double your swimming season, and in some states you can swim all year.  Solar costs as little as $90 per year to run making it the only affordable option as energy costs rise.  Solar pool heating has almost a zero carbon footprint too, warming your pool, not the planet.

Solar Pool Heating Warranty – 15 Years!
Typical Gas Heater Warranty – 5 years
Typical Heat Pump Warranty 3 – 10 years

Why Covers

Evaporation on uncovered swimming pools can equal the pools entire volume of water each year.  A swimming pool cover will save this water, and ensure you get the maximum from your pool heating. Cut your pool heating costs by up to 2/3 and payback your investment in as little as 18 months.
