SOLAR POOL HEATERS
Thermax panels are what are considered Unglazed Solar Pool Heaters. Unlike Thermax Extreme Glazed Solar Pool Collectors, these systems contain no glass insulation or copper heat transfer piping and therefor come at a much more affordable price. Because of there is no glass insulation to trap the heat, the THERMAX are more suitable for pools in a warmer climate where the target design temp is 30 -31C (86-88 F). By most pool professionals this is considered the optimal pool temperature. At temperatures above this the pool’s chemical sanitization begins to evaporate out of the water causing greater chance of algae as well as greater cost to keep the chlorine level stable. For most seasonal pool usage, the Thermax unglazed solar panel is the best for performance and cost.
