USA flag for  DO IT YOURSELF!  SOLAR POOL HEATER.                 Easy to built solar panels.

I am convinced that I can make these kinds of solar panels myself without the technical support from the DVD. Really, what do you think about this statement ?


Indeed, these panels are relatively easy to build. However, the risk of failure is not worth the price of the DVD. There is a peculiar and UNIQUE technique in building these panels which took time and imagination to establish. Taking into account the small cost of our DVD, we think it not worth the risk.


What would I gain from making these solar panels myself ?


A part form the satisfaction of doing it yourself, you will save a lot of money. Moreover you will be able to add more panels to your system should you want to increase the capacity. You can even make some for your friends.


Specifically, how many solar panels should I build for my own swimming pool ?


Total panel surface should be equal or more than 40% of the total swimming pool surface. For instance, if your swimming pool is 21 feet in diameter, we are suggesting to use at least 4 panels. For a 24 foot diameter swimming pool, 5 to 6 panels should be enough.


What would be the cost of building a single solar panel ?


Each solar panel might cost between US $20.00 and US $27.00. Obviously, prices may fluctuate from one place to another.


Can these solar panels resist to, letís say, Canadian winters ?


Of course! However, make sure to drain out (flush) the system before winter to avoid frost damage. Also avoid panels to be affected by snow accumulation.


Can I set up these panels elsewhere than on my house roof ?

Of course! You can set up these panels where ever you want. For instance, on a backyard shed roof, on a fence, directly on the soil or near your swimming pool. The most important aspect is that your panels are exposed to direct sunshine. If it is impossible to set up your panels with a direct south exposure, you may compensate by setting up more panels.


Wherecan I find these essential Cocoplast panels ?


You can get these panels in many stores such as hardware stores, where artist material is sold, advertisement and billboards companies, office material stores, etc ...


You are mentioning that each of these panels has a maximum power of 3500 watts. What does that mean exactly ?

This means that each solar panel can heat up the water of a swimming pool to a maximum of 3500 watts. It is exactly as if one would use a 3500 watts electrical resistance.  3500 watts is the energy consumed by 35 electric bulbs of each 100 watts or the power used to heat up a regular water tank.


Make you own solar panels for your pool and take advantage of the FREE power of the sun !
