YOURSELF! SOLAR POOL HEATER.
Easy to built solar panels.
A black surface exposed to the sun transforms
the sun rays into heat equivalent to about 1000 watts per
square meter (see
Basic Theory for detailed information).
Simply apply this principle to heat the water
of a swimming pool. In order to do this, we expose the black
plastic panels installed outdoor to direct sunlight in which
the swimming poll water is running. The black surface
catches up the solar energy and transforms it into heat
which is transferred (passed on) to the swimming pool water.
Therefore the swimming pool is self heated.
The cold water from the swimming pool is
pumped towards the panels, heated then runned back to the
swimming pool. This ongoing cycle brings the water to the
desired temperature. The water runs through the panels using
the filter water pump.
As for the solar panels, we suggest using a
ribbed corogated plastic black sheet called Coroplast. This
Coroplast is a chemically inert weather-resistant material.
It is abrasion and UV resistant and also lightweight. This
material is among others much used in the artistic
industries as for publicity panels. It is readily available
at your local hardware dealers and is available in
thicknesses ranging of 4mm, 6mm and 10mm.
Each panel that you build is 4 feet(122cm) by 8
feet(244cm) with a 32 square foot (or 3 square meter) surface. It
has a 3500 watts (11943 btu/h) heating power.
Your solar water heater will be made of several of
these panels jointed together to have a great heating power in order
to heat your pool as fast as possible.
The DVD will explain you how to build your own panels
so that they are efficient, weather-resistant and ready to use.
Simply follow the instructions included in the DVD video.
