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.
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.
Innovative 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.
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.
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.

D.I.Y. KITS INCLUDE EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO:
- Install the selected number of solar pool heating panels in a single row. If the system is being broken-up into multiple arrays additional parts will be required. Please contact us for 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 the systems’ supply and return plumbing lines.
- The pipe adapters connecting the system piping to the panels are high temperate CPVC.
- Contains the parts necessary to aid in gravity drainage of the panels and piping.
INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING COMPONENTS
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. One (1) panel kit is included for each solar panel.
Each panel kit contains;
- (2) Mounting Pad, Top Header
- (2) Mounting Pad, Bottom Header
- (2) PPC, Panel Clamp Assembly
Row Kit: Contains the parts necessary for making water connections from a row of solar pool heating panels to the systems supply and return plumbing lines. One (1) row kit is included for each system.
Each row kit contains;

WHAT 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. Please contact us to help determine which size system is right for your specific needs.
