    Q:Under roof installation in the manual the hard plumb layout differs from the website info and guides, which is correct?

    Answer This Question

    A:  I highly suggest going with the manual, there are many web versions for so many different type applications, the manual always wins if buying in ground solar kit the web version will match the manual, but when using the universal kit it is different only go by the manual.

      Q:Hi. Can this above ground model be installed on the garage roof about 20 feet away from the pump?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Yes that wouldn’t work fine. Pump HP is most important when water travel is more then normal so if you have a small pump you may need to upgrade. Your pool service guy can’t tell you more.

      by|May 5, 2023

        A:  It depends on how strong your pool pump is. I have a two HP pump and it pushes the water over 40' and up 30' to the roof on the house.

        by|May 5, 2023

          A:  Depends on your Pump. Some pumps don't have enough to push the water up to high off the ground. make sure your pump has the HP to push the water.

                Raised the 14' pool temp by 7 degrees. Only complaint is the whole pump flow cannot be put through the system the way they tell you to set it up, so it has the potential to work even better if the restrictors weren't in and system was set up in parallel with inlet and outlet on opposite corners.

                We bought the sun heater universal, to replace similar solar heater. I found the sun heater to be a more well thought out product. It was a direct fit where the “sun grabber” had been. With the mounting brackets along the edge, it is very well suited for horizontal mounting.

                Weather too bad yet did not get installed and functioning yet, check back around end of May. In process of designing and constructing hi efficiency IR transfer automated pumping system for pools rating of panels is premature at this time

                After only one year they had many leaks on the bottom where they touch the roof. The panels I had before lasted for ten years! The warranty is useless.

                  Heat from the sun
                  Works well. Had one before this one for 5 years before it started to leak. This one is improved at some of the fittings. Warms my 18' pool up about 10 degrees in a week. I have it on my garage roof.

                    Installation instructions are not very detailed. Very little information available online. 2 Panels out of 8 had small leaks. (Have not tried to file warranty claim yet)

                    There is an error in the description of the product on the Home Depot site. It should say 2 (two) panels size 2 ft x 20 ft each.

                      solar heater for pool
                      The heater does nicely on sunny days and raises pool temperature a good 6 degrees. However the instructions are confusing. The kit is actually two piece panels 2ft by 20ft. totaling 80 sq. ft. Kit 'does not' come with mounting hardware which is extra cost and necessary. The fitting were not connectable to normal sized fitting and pipe and needed replacement. The pool is 15 K gallons. Two kits ( 160 sf ) are mounted on the roof and finally pleased with the purchase.
