Solar Pool Heating

The Sunstar product is separate / a non-Solahart product

SunStar’s solar pool heating system provides you more enjoyment in your pool, long after the summer has gone. By capturing the immense heating power of our greatest natural energy resource, the sun, SunStar’s leading-edge solar panel design lets you swim comfortably even during the cooler months.

  • Extends the swimming season by up to 4 months
  • Is tailor made to suit and fit any surface
  • Up to 10 years warranty
  • Australian made and designed

Depending on individual conditions, such as the amount of sun, wind etc, your pool water temperature can rise by up to five to seven degrees with the addition of quality pool heating equipment. Not only can it increase the water temperature of the pool but it can also be used to assist the cooling process of the pool by running the system overnight. With the simple installation of a pump and the absorbant matting your swimming season can be extended as well as removing that instant chill when entering the water.

How solar pool heating works

Using your existing pool pump, pool water is directed through a series of valves to your solar collectors. Pool water enters the solar collectors at the bottom and rises to the top through the individual tubes of the collector. As the water rises through the collector, it is heated by the sun’s radiant energy.

The water is then returned to the pool to repeat the cycle until your pool has been warmed by the sun.

Individual tube design significantly reduces wind load, certifying that SunStar collectors will withstand cyclone force winds!

Manufactured from UV stabilised polypropylene, SunStar Collectors are super tough and durable, providing trouble free solar heating for many years. SunStar Solar Heating can increase the time spent in the pool by an extra 3-5 months per year.

SunStar uses an over-molding process which produces a one piece header and riser,no seams or welds mean no stress fractures and therefore a product able to withstand higher temperatures and pressures.

Affordable solar pool heating

The SunStar system uses the sun’s energy to heat your pool. The sun’s heat is transferred into your pool by circulating pool water through the patented SunStar solar panel. In most cases, the pool’s existing pump is used to circulate the pool water through the SunStar panels. The water is continually circulated through the solar panels until the pool has attained the desired temperature.
