The Future of Solar Pool Heating

HAS ARRIVED!

INTRODUCING SWIMLUX

SwimLux brings you the next generation in solar pool heating. Multi-wall encapsulation glazing produces a greenhouse effect and back insulation for each individual tube, significantly improving the thermal efficiency of the panel.

SwimLux also features a specially designed mounting rail system which creates a simple and fast assembly with extreme strength against strong winds.

The result of these innovations is a solar collector capable of withstanding strong storm winds while also providing enhanced heating performance. No longer do you need to choose from performance or mounting security. With SwimLux, you get the best of both worlds - without any tie-down strapping!

Advanced performance in high winds & low/moderate sunlight makes SwimLux ideal for coastal regions, cloudy/cooler climates and northern states. Get more warmth in your pool when subpar climate conditions work to strip it away!

More Warmth in Your Pool When You Need it Most!

        • Significant high-energy performance in areas with windy climates. Semi-glazed collector design resists heat loss from high winds.
        • Specially designed mounting rail system provides extreme strength and security from strong storm winds while also increasing the number of available mounting points.
    • Unique square header design assures tight fastening and mounting to any roof type.
    • The ideal solution for cloudy, windy, coastal & colder / northern climates.
    • The ultimate collector for public or commercial pools operating year round.
    • Improved energy outputs for pre-heating systems.
    • Comes with a strong 12-year warranty.
    • SwimLux systems may require less of your limited roof space!

Special Glazing Creates a Greenhouse Effect - Significantly Increasing Performance!

SwimLux collectors are manufactured from 100% UV stabilized polypropylene using a unique over molding process. During this process, the headers and the individual tubes are molded into one piece, eliminating hundreds of individual joints.

The added multi-wall glazing of a SwimLux collector produces a greenhouse effect for each of these individual tubes, greatly enhancing performance during cool or breezy weather. This high standard of innovation, technology and manufacturing is backed by an industry leading 12-year warranty.

Strapless Flush Mounting to Any Roof Type!

SwimLux pool solar panels feature a distinct, sleek design showcased by its specialized mounting pad system. Each panel contains a mounting rail molded directly into the manifold, allowing for a greater degree of flexibility with mounting hardware locations, especially useful for tile roof installations. Specialized mounting pads allow for strapless flush mounting to any roof type, minimize roof penetrations and allow for expansion and contraction.

SwimLux's innovative mounting system withstands violent storm winds without the need of tie-down strap. Not only are strapless mounts much more aesthetically appealing, the elimination of strapping also minimizes the number of roof connections, making SwimLux one of the most roof-friendly systems available. SwimLux installations are completely strap free and set a new bar for visual aesthetics.

Maximum Flow, Longer Operating Life

SwimLux features an open flow design with each and every individual tube opening directly into the header, increasing flow and virtually eliminating backpressure, saving wear and tear on your pool pump.

An individual tube design allows riser tubes to expand and contract independently; eliminating cracks and leaks due to wear and tear from thermal expansion and contraction. Low head-loss riser tubes eliminate high head pressures, maximize efficiency, and protect against clogging. The round design also captures more heat.

SwimLux's unique square header shape maximizes flow and increases efficiency. Headers and risers are molded together forming one solid piece, eliminating seams and welds that can crack with age and stress. This produces the strongest possible connection and ensures a low maintenance system.

Industry Leading Protection

SwimLux solar pool heating panels come with an industry leading 12-year limited warranty that includes a bonus lifetime limited warranty plus freeze protection; the longest, most comprehensive warranty in the industry.

The Best Method For Connecting Panels & Piping

Patented panel clamps eliminate rubber hoses and metal clamps that require regular rooftop maintenance and replacement, eliminating hassles and saving time and money. Panel clamps also allow the panels to be mounted closer together for a more efficient and attractive system.

World Renown Manufacturing

SwimLux is manufactured and designed by Magen Eco Energy, one of the most renown solar pool heating manufacturers in the world. Magen has provided residential and commercial solar solutions to countless swimming pools around the world for more than 40 years.

In Conclusion, the SwimLux solar pool heating system is designed for homeowners who do not want to compromise in any category. SwimLux provides high performance heating results, longevity, durability, wind lift resistance, freeze resistance, and aesthetic appeal.

How Many Panels Do I Need?

To find out precisely what size system (how many panels) will adequately heat your swimming pool and provide the results your looking for, see our informational page: "How to Size Your System".

Here we discuss all the factors that should be considered when planning your solar pool heating system. We will walk you through the planning phases, step by step, and help you identify the best setup for your pool, climate zone & heating goals.

What Parts Do I Need?

Panel Kit

  • Contains the parts necessary for installing a solar pool panel to a supporting surface and making water connections from one panel to another.
  • (1) panel kit is required for each solar panel.

Row Kit

  • Contains the parts necessary to connect the feed and return plumbing lines and cap the opposing ends within a single row of solar pool heating panels.
  • (1) row kit is required for each row of solar panels.

Row Spacer Kit

  • Contains the parts necessary to bypass mounting surface obstructions larger than 6" such as roof vents, skylights and exhaust fans. Allows connection of PVC pipe between the panels to provide proper clearance of the obstruction. Row Spacer Kits are also used to connect collectors into one row that are on different roof levels or that are facing different directions.

Vacuum Relief Valve Attachment Set:

  • Contains the parts necessary to aid in gravity drainage of the panels and piping. Vacuum relief valves allow air to enter the solar pool heating system when the pool pump is turned off and facilitate water drainage from the panels. This is especially important when winterizing your panels to prevent freeze damage.
  • One (1) set is required for each system.

D.I.Y. SYSTEM KITS

Take the guess work out with one of our DIY system kits. Each kit contains everything you need.

  • Install your chosen number of solar panels in a single row. *If the system is being broken-up into multiple rows, one additional row kit will be required for each added row. Please contact us if you need assistance with multi-bank / custom systems.
  • Mount solar panels to your preferred installation surface; roof or rack.
  • Make water connections to and from each panel.
    • Make water connections to your supply and return plumbing lines.
    • Allow for gravity drainage of the panels and piping when the pump is turned off (water drains back to your pool through the supply plumbing line).

What Parts are Included in the Kit?

The following installation hardware is included in a SwimLux DIY kit. The row kit and panel kits are always included while the row spacer kit is sold separately.

Panel Kit

  • Contains the parts necessary for installing a solar pool panel to a supporting surface and making water connections from one panel to another.

      • (1) PVC Pipe Fitting, Tee, Slip X Slip X Slip, White, 2"

Which Size System Do I Need?

The most relevant aspect of sizing a system is based on the square footage of your pool. We typically recommend anywhere from 50%-100% solar panel to pool square foot coverage based on a number of different variables including, weather, shade, install direction, wind, climate region, performance expectations, etc. For example, if your pool is 500 square feet, then 50% coverage would be 250 square feet of panels, 75% coverage would be 375 square feet of panels, etc. From there it is selecting a panel size that fits your installation area.

To find out precisely what size system (how many panels) will adequately heat your pool and provide the results your looks for, see our page on "How to Size Your System". All the factors are discussed and we will help you identify the best system for your pool, climate zone & heating goals.
