Sungrabber’s high performance solar heating systems can be installed in just 30 minutes (for on-ground systems). Solar energy refers to the use of the sun’s rays rather than electricity, oil, kerosene or natural gas to provide heat for a wide variety of uses. Sunlight strikes and heats an “absorber” surface within a “solar collector”. The water to be used flows through the absorber that has been warmed by the sun and picks up the heat from it. An analogy is often made to a garden hose that sits in the sun and then warms the initial water passing through it. For pool heating, a flat panel is used that is made up of many small tubes. The size and number of tubes as well as the material of the absorber effect how well the sun’s warmth is captured and transferred to the pool water. This is referred to as the thermal performance rating of the product. The smaller the tubes, the slower the water flows through them which in turn enables more heat to be transferred to the water. Likewise, if the number of tubes used is increased, more water can be exposed to the heat and therefore warmed. Benefits of Solar Pool Heating.
