It’s a question every pool owner asks at one time or another. For new pool owners, the chilly reality of pool ownership sets in when fall arrives and the pool is too cold to enjoy. For seasoned pool owners, the reality of an unheated pool turned into cold acceptance long ago. An unheated pool sits idle for months at a time. Starting now, you don’t have to bear the cold any longer. SunSaver™ is the high-performance solar system that can heat your pool far beyond the few warm pool days of summer. Just as important, you won’t have to pay a dime in pool heating bills. Enjoy free heat from the sun and months more swimming fun with the most reliable name in solar pool heating — FAFCO.

  • Patented water flow metering system distributes water evenly throughout the entire system for maximum heating effi ciency.
  • No hot and cold spots like other solar brands.
  • Larger 2-inch, full-flow header pipe prevents undue strain on your pool pump.

A typical FAFCO system consists of solar collectors – eas-ily mounted on the roof – and an optional solar sensor and automatic control unit.

  1. Set automatic control unit for desired water temperature.
  2. Sensor detects changes in solar heat and tells the automatic control unit when there is energy available to work efficiently.
  3. Your pool pump sends cold water from the pool through the solar collectors.
  4. SunSaver™ solar collectors transfer the sun’s heat to the water as it fl ows through the collectors
  5. Warm, solar-heated water fl ows back to the pool, continuously circulating through the collectors until it reaches pre-set temperature levels. At night and in limited sunshine, a sensor prevents the pool from being cooled by automatically triggering the controller to shut off the system and drain water from the collectors.

WHY FAFCO?

ELECTRIC HEAT PUMPS FOR
YEAR-ROUND HEATING

When a solar pool heater cannot be used, we have a solution. Traditionally heating your pool can be very expensive, so most people are selective about when they heat their pool. Mirasol has a solution that saves money while giving you the more swim time: an electric heat pump. They offer a great way to heat your pool, keeping it at a comfortable temperature all the time.

Heat pumps have a lower cost of operation because of the small amount of electricity they take to function. Unlike other types of heaters, heat pumps do not employ a heating element. Instead, they collect heat from the outside air and move it to your pool. Heat pumps simply transfer existing heat from the air to your water, through a compressor.

A fan pulls outside air in and over an evaporator coil; the heat is absorbed in the coil and transferred to a compressor where it continues to gain heat. Next, the compressor transfers the heat to water passing through. And your pool water becomes heated.

Besides the lower cost and energy efficient properties, heat pumps are self-cleaning and very simple to use. They do not pollute your pool water and are made of materials that are impervious to pool chemicals. Heat pumps are convenient making a pool even more enjoyable. Take a look at our Pentair heaters and heat pumps today.
