Contains the necessary parts for installing a solar pool heating panel to the mounting surface and connecting one panel to another within a system.
Panel connector hoses are molded EPDM rubber designed specifically for use with solar pool heating systems. Outlet header bracket, strap brackets and hose clamps are stainless steel construction for optimal strength and corrosion resistance.
Flashing bases are also included to support lag bolt attachment to the mounting surface and provide enhanced seal.
- Durable UV-resistant EPDM rubber for long life in direct sun.
- Reinforced center prevents deformation from pressure and vacuum.
- Hose-clamp indicator ridges for perfect placement and seal.
- Stainless-steel brackets and clamps.
- Hoses are 3.75" wide.
Each Panel Kit contains: (1) Outlet Header Hold-Down Bracket Assembly, (1) Outlet Header Bracket Flashing Base, (2) Strap Bracket, Stainless Steel, (2) Strap Bracket Flashing Base, (4) Hose Clamp, Stainless Steel, (2) Panel Connector Hose (3 3/4” long)
> One (1) Panel Kit is included for each solar panel in the kit.
Contains the parts necessary for making water connections from a row ("bank") of solar pool heating panels to the system's supply and return plumbing lines. Specialized pipe connectors create a leak-free seal between solar panels and PVC pipe. These pipe connectors are an extremely important component for any solar pool heating system and should always be used to connect PVC pipe to solar panels via a rubber coupling hose. Also contains the parts necessary to aid in gravity drainage of the panels and piping, as well as cap off a single row of solar panels.
Each Row Kit includes a vacuum relief valve. Vacuum relief valve's allows air to enter the solar pool heating system when the pool pump shuts off to facilitate automatic gravity drainage of the panels and pipe. This is an extremely important aspect of solar pool heating systems to prevent freeze damage, as well as keep air from stagnating within the panels and piping.
Each Row Kit contains: (1) Outlet Header Hold-Down Bracket Assembly, (1) Outlet Header Bracket Flashing Base, (2) Strap Bracket, Stainless Steel, (2) Strap Bracket Flashing Base, (4) Strap Clamp, Stainless Steel, (4) Hose Clamp, Stainless Steel, (1) End Cap, (1) Vacuum Relief Valve, (2) System Connector Hose (7” long), (2) Pipe Connector, CPVC
> One (1) Row Kit is included with each system. If you are installing your panels in multiple rows, you will need one (1) additional Row Kit per row of solar panels.
Flex Hose Adapter Kit
Includes specialized adapters developed to connect either 1.25" or 1.5" flex hose directly to the Triple Threat solar pool heating system. Contains adapters to attach to the solar panels, PVC fittings, 3-port valve and 2-port valve.
Triple Threat contains no threaded fittings. Specialized adapters connect with the use of O-rings & hose clamps for a completely secure, leak-free seal. These are the connection types used with high pressure inground pool systems, previously unavailable for above ground (flex hose style) swimming pools.
Each Triple Threat system comes with a full set of adapters to connect to either 1.25”/1.5” flex hose, or PVC pipe.
> One (1) Flex Hose Adapter Kit is included with each system.
Accessory & Completion Kit
Contains the necessary parts for completing a standard roof mounted installation of the Triple Threat solar pool heating system. One of these components is the Drain Loop Assembly, which allows for the automatic gravity drainage of the panels & piping when the pump shuts off. This functionality is critical for keeping systems protected from freeze damage when temperatures drop below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
This kit is also used for assisting in alternative installation methods. Kit includes enough strapping for up to (6) solar collectors. If more strap is needed, additional may be purchased by searching for PN: 16007 (available in multiple lengths, or 100 ft. bulk roll).
When solar panels are installed horizontally OR on a ground mounted surface near pool level, panels will either need to be connected to an automation system with freeze protection enabled or manually drained of all water whenever temperatures are expected to drop below 40 degrees Fahrenheit (temperature at which freeze damage can begin to occur).
> One (1) Accessory & Completion Kit is included with each system.
Pentair 3-Port Positive Seal Diverter Valve
Triple Threat includes premium Pentair Optimum Positive Seal Diverter Valve's. Positive seal valve's assure maximum flow is maintained for a maximum heating performance.
Pentair Optimum Positive Seal Valves have excellent flow characteristics. They are also manufactured to strict quality standards & never require lubrication!
3-Port valves are used to divert water either to the solar array (turn solar on), or back to the pool (turning solar off).
- Maintenance-free PTFE coated diverter requires no lubrication.
- Positive seal ensures complete isolation.
- Withstands pressure up to 150 psi.
- Fiberglass reinforced handle with field-adjustable stop positions.
- Allows attachment to either 1.5" or 2" plumbing and inlet can be plumbed at any port.
> One (1) Pentair 3-Port Diverter Valve is included with each system.
Pentair 2-Port Positive Seal Diverter/Isolation Valve
2-Port valves are used to isolate the solar system for winterization, keep water from backflowing through the panels when the system is shut off, or system maintenance.
> One (1) Pentair 2-Port Diverter Valve is included with each system.
