The Future of Solar Pool Heating has Arrived!

SwimLux brings you the next generation in solar pool heating. By extruding the collector tubes right inside a special glazing material, SwimLux significantly increases the performance of the solar collector. The special glazing creates a greenhouse effect to preserve energy in the collector.

The result is more warmth in your pool when you need it most. Advanced performance in high winds makes SwimLux ideal for coastal regions and windy/cooler states.

SwimLux is purpose-built for more solar gain when you need it the most.

        • Significant high-energy performance for areas with high winds.
    • Specially design mounting system provides extreme strength against strong winds.
    • Unique header design to assure tight fastening and mounting to any roof type.
    • SwimLux systems may require less of your limited roof space!
    • The ideal solution for northern states and colder 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.

Special Glazing Creates a Greenhouse Effect, Significantly Increasing

the Performance of the Collector

All 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 with a bonus lifetime limited warranty.

Industry Leading Warranty Protection

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

The Next Generation of Solar Pool Heating

INNOVATIVE ENGINEERING

      • A combination of special header and mounting features eliminates possible tile damage caused by the constant contraction and expansion of the materials, while preventing flow characteristics with minimum pressure drop.
    •  
      • A modular structure enables fast and firm connection between panels, creating any size absorption area over any type of roof imaginable.
    •  
      • Reinforced polyamide clamps & fittings create a fast and reliable connection between panels and pipes.
    •  
      • The specially designed mounting kit creates a simple and fast assembly with extreme strength against strong winds.
    •  
      • Binders strengthen the collector while allowing firm connections to metal/wooden rack in order to absorb lift forces caused by strong winds.

SMART PRODUCT MANUFACTURING

  • This single piece construction provides one seamless, leak-poof, integrally molded thermoplastic unit, ensuring a maintenance-free system; no corrosion and no limescale buildup. It also remains stable under extreme water pressure.

 

  • Sealing Panel: Patent-pending mechanism that allows the absorber to expand and contract, simultaneously preventing the ingress of water and dust into the glazing.

PERFORMANCE ENHANCING TECHNOLOGY

  • Multi-wall Encapsulation Glazing. Each panel is encased in a partitioned polymeric glazing to create a greenhouse effect, which significantly enhances the panel’s performance.

 

  • SwimLux features a specially formulated polymer material. Tested in authorized laboratories, a unique polymer formula stabilizes against sustained ultraviolet radiation, extreme weather conditions, and aging.

 

  • PC glazing is coated with a durable and sustainable UV blocking layer that ensures high transparency over a long period of time.

 

  • Over-Molding Injection Technology; a one of a kind injection process connects riser tubes to the header, creating a seamless joint to form a single polymer panel with extreme pressure stability.

CUTTING EDGE DESIGN

  • A unique square manifold header design to assure tight fastening and mounting of the panel to any roof type.

 

  • Headers and risers are molded together forming one solid piece, eliminating seams and welds that can crack with age and stress.

 

  • Preserves water flow with minimum drop in pressure.

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).

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.
