> The ultimate package for automating your solar pool heating system! Simply set your desired temperature and let the control box do the rest.

> Digital monitoring and calibration of water and solar temperature in 1° increments with the push of a button providing clear readings on the LCD display screen.

> Master Package includes a full array of premium Pentair high-flow valves, a specialized 3-port solar valve designed to allow automatic gravity drainage of your solar system, a motorized valve actuator, and an upgraded solar sensor for a more accurate temperature reading at the collectors (standard sensors can be affected by wind & give inaccurate readings).

> Freeze Protection: When the water temperature and the solar sensor temperature falls to 40° F (4° C) or below, the pool/spa water is automatically circulated through the system to prevent freezing. When the solar temperature sensor and or the water sensor reaches 42° F (6° C), or above, freeze protection will stop. In mild climates, freeze protection can help prevent solar collector damage.

> Nocturnal Cooling: The SolarTouch controller provides automatic nocturnal (nighttime) cooling during night time hours for pools that overheat in hot climates. When enabled, SolarTouch controller circulates relatively warmer pool water to the collector panels when the collector temperature and the pool temperature is hotter than the high limit setting. This process cools the pool water over time.

The Automated Temperature Control Kit contains the components necessary for automatic temperature control of solar pool heating systems. A motorized actuator connects with a control box to automatically turn solar on and off. Simply set your desired temperature and let the control box do the rest. The SolarTouch controller also provides bonus features like freeze protection & automatic nocturnal (nighttime) cooling during night time hours for pools that overheat in hot climates. Includes premium Pentair lube-free valve’s, 2″-2.5″ CPVC. Also includes an upgraded solar temperature sensor (block type) for a more accurate temperature reading at the collectors (standard type can be affected by wind & give inaccurate readings).

Automated Features

  • Standard Functions: Digital monitoring and calibration of water and solar temperature in 1° increments with the push of a button providing clear readings on the LCD display screen.
  • Freeze Protection: When the water temperature and the solar sensor temperature falls to 40° F (4° C) or below, the pool/spa water is automatically circulated through the system to prevent freezing. When the solar temperature sensor and or the water sensor reaches 42° F (6° C), or above, freeze protection will stop. In mild climates, freeze protection can help prevent solar collector damage.
  • Nocturnal Cooling: The SolarTouch controller provides automatic nocturnal (nighttime) cooling during night time hours for pools that overheat in hot climates. When enabled, SolarTouch controller circulates relatively warmer pool water to the collector panels when the collector temperature and the pool temperature is hotter than the high limit setting. This process cools the pool water over time.

Valve Features

  • The Pentair 3-Port Solar Valve is a key component of your solar pool heating system, allowing water to be diverted to solar to heat your pool or bypassing solar directly back to your pool. 
  • The Pentair 2-Port Positive Seal Diverter Valve is a key component of your solar pool heating system, allowing system isolation for service work and winterizing.
  • The Pentair 2-Port Check Valve eliminates back flow through the solar pool heating panels.
  • Manufactured to strict quality standards and constructed of durable CPVC to withstand higher temperatures.
  • Maintenance-free PTFE coated diverter requires no lubrication.
  • Specialized 3-Port Solar Valve allows water to drain back through the valve draining your solar pool heating panels when the pump not running.
  • Withstands pressure up to 150 psi.
  • Fiberglass reinforced handle with field-adjustable stop positions.
  • Allows attachment to either 2" or 2.5" plumbing and inlet can be plumbed at any port.

All solar heating panels “Collectors” must be installed with new hardware for warranty coverage to apply.

    Tips to Protect your Purchase

    Verify the condition of your product. Any product that arrives damaged or defective must be reported within 72 hours of delivery. Once this window has elapsed, the recipient acknowledges that the product has arrived free of damage or defect and accepts full responsibility for the condition of the product. Future concerns relating to the performance or function of the product must be addressed through a warranty claim subject to the terms and conditions of the manufacturer’s warranty policy.

    Use caution when walking near solar collectors.
    These products are not designed to be walked or stepped on; such actions may damage the collector and/or riser tubes. Accidental damage during installation is not covered by warranty.

    Use only new hardware.
    Reusing old hardware has been shown to damage new solar collectors. For warranty coverage to apply, all solar pool heating panels “Collectors” must be installed with new hardware.

    Use caution installing rubber couplings.
    Damage may result from couplings being pushed too far onto the header manifold, tearing outside riser tubes. This occurs when clamps are left untightened and additional collectors are added. Each side of the coupling should be tightened to the manifold before attempting to insert the other side. Using new hardware WITH internal rubber stoppers virtually eliminates this problem, however caution should still be exercised to mitigate this problem completely.
