How Do Solar Pool Heaters Work?

Solar Pool Heating is quickly becoming a popular way to heat peoples pools all year round, especially in Queensland, where it is sunny for the better part of the year.

Solar pool heating systems are extremely dependable and sustainable. Furthermore, solar pool heating allows you and your family to enjoy your swimming pool at your preferred temperature even in cool weather.

At Sunlover Queensland we have two solar pool heating systems, strip solar heating and rigid solar heating;

Strip Solar Heating Brisbane delivers the ‘swim when you want’ lifestyle with cutting edge technology. While the Rigid Solar Panels provide optimum heat transfer and are built for Australia’s tough condition.

How do they work?

Solar pool heating Brisbane use specially built rooftop or ground-mounted mats that are connected to the pool’s internal circulation system. The solar pool heating mats are designed to absorb the heat generated by the sun which are then added to the water through the pool’s plumbing system.

For the sun to heat your pool’s water, you need to set your preferred water temperature first, which then a sensor will decide when the device will switch on and begin heating the water. Afterward, cold water from the pool is sent into a system of pipes in the solar collectors through the pool pump. Solar collectors generally use the sun’s energy to heat the cold pool as it passes through the panels, resulting in a noticeable temperature increase in the pool.


The effectiveness of solar pool heating is high in Queensland, due to the fact that we have high percentage of days where it is sunny. Brisbane solar pool heaters are not instant heat generators; instead, they gradually add heat over time, and you’ll need to keep a solar blanket on your pool at night to get the most out of them. If you are looking for a great quality pool blanket to use in conjunction with your solar pool heating, Sunlover Queensland has got a wide range to suit all pools.
