Well, this year is shaping up to be a stellar solar year (pun intended). One client installed 5 new Fafco pool heating panels in April and has already been swimming in 84° F water at the beginning of May. We were all a little astounded at how quickly his pool temperature came up using solar and WITHOUT TURNING ON HIS GAS HEATER. Note: The owner uses a pool cover, not shown in the picture below, when the pool is not in use.

There are two more clients waiting to put solar pool heating in as soon as our next shipment arrives - one to increase the pool temperature and extend his swimming season, and the other to cut back on his electric bills for heating his pool with an air source heat pump.

Unglazed flat plate collectors (like the Fafco solar panels) have the highest efficiency of any renewable energy technology for heating pools, and yet they are the simplest technology available.

We like that right?  - less is more!
