  • Solazone specialises in swimming pool heating and has installed solar pool heaters since 1983
  • Solar-heated swimming pools get used much more of the time, and our cost-effective solar pool heaters are acclaimed by their owners, ranging from Victoria and Tasmania to Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.
  • Rigid Panel systems are ideal for those seeking a more robust, durable, and longer-lasting solar pool heating system.
  • Rigid Panels are particularly popular in regions that are prone to possum, cockatoo, or bird attacks.  However, they are more expensive to install than traditional Strip Systems and may not be suitable for all roofs, particularly for irregularly shaped roofs.  Each system is designed to suit your individual needs, roof type, pool size, and budget.

Which size best suits your roof?

  1. Calculate your swimming pool area.  (length times the average width).
  2. Measure your roof from the ridge to the rain gutter.  This determines the maximum collector length you may use.
  3. Select from the three sizes available.
  4. Divide the calculated pool area from (1.) by the selected collector size to determine the number of collectors that you need.
