At the most basic level, Solar Trek Inc.'s Solar Pool Heating Systems simply amplify the laws of nature. Heat from the sun will always warm the water in your pool to a certain extent. A Solar Trek system enhances this natural effect, simply and efficiently by both warming water temperatures to desired levels as well as extending your swim season.
Solar Trek's solar pool heating systems have three basic components: a panel, a pump and a filter.
A pump (usually your existing pool pump) pushes water through a filter to strain leaves and debris. Water is then pumped into a solar panel mounted on your roof, porch, fence, or any other location with good sun exposure (optimally south facing in North America).
The water is substantially heated as it moves through the panel and it flows back into your pool, warming the water. Unlike solar water heaters for indoor use, solar pool heaters do not require a storage tank. Your pool provides all the storage required.
As an added benefit, homeowners in hot climates can use Solar Trek's solar pool systems to cool their pool in the summer months by circulating water at night when air temperatures are lower.
