Thermax Extreme Solar Pool Heater

12 PANEL SYSTEM

Thermax Extreme Solar Pool Heater 12 Panel

At the core of the Solar Thermax Pool heater is the High performance SRCC Certified solar flat plate collectors. Unlike traditional solar pool heaters these high-performance heaters contain copper pipes fused to a highly selective aluminum fin that has a special absorbative coating. All of this is surrounded by a borcilliate glass panel that acts as a thermos keeping the heat energy from being released to the surrounding. This also prevents and heat loss from wind that is a common problem with other pool collectors.

When mounting panels, it is important to make sure they are in the best orientation to capture the southern sun which is as close to southern facing as possible (azimuth). Ensure minimum shading through the day to maximize their performance. The Angle of inclination can optimize the pool heating production. Generally, the rule of thumb for solar pool heaters is that they should be mounted at the same angle as the summer equinox (longest day of the year).

Multiple collectors should be installed in series but should not exceed 4. For larger size system we recommend you connect them in parallel. 2 parallel rows of 4 collectors will perform better than one row of 8 in series. When connecting the panels, it is very important to use the technique called reverse return. This ensure the pressure drop and flows will be equal across each panel. An automatic solar air vent is included with our water heating kits and will ensure the air is properly removed. This should be installed at the highest point on your solar pool heating system.
