Heat your pool system with solar energy – cost-effectively and completely without emissions. You can rely on our particularly high-quality AQSOL solar absorber system, which has proven itself for over 33 years with large and private customers alike. Whether it's a small pool or a public facility – you can benefit from our solar absorber system, which has been optimised through the years and has been distinguished as a test winner.
The AQSOL solar absorber system
Our solar absorber system is installed in a suitable and sunny location (e.g. on your roof) and simply connected to the pool's existing filter circuit. The water flowing through is heated naturally by the sun's absorbed rays.
Originally developed for use in large-scale facilities such as outdoor pools or hotels, our solar absorption system is now increasingly being used effectively in the private sector - from smaller pop-up pools to luxurious wellness oases.
The solar absorber system is precisely handcrafted to suit the dimensions of your situation. Each individual absorber tube is connected to the collection and distribution pipe in a pressure-tight manner. With our system, you won't find any of the leaks that frequently occur with other types of installations, such as with plug-in connections.
The graphic displayed shows the temperature profile of the pool water between two sunny days. The temperature measurements were taken from a pool without any cover. If a cover is used additionally at night, which we would always recommend, the temperatures of the heated pool would be higher.
The existing filter pump is often also used for circulation through the solar system. Further filter times are then usually not necessary. In exceptional cases, for example if the difference in height between the circulation pump and the absorber system exceeds 10 m, an additional pump may be required for the solar circuit. The temperature difference determined in the solar control system is used directly to control the integrated 3-way motor valve - with supplementary electrical switching if desired - and then the filter pump at the same time. This provides optimum use of free solar energy for your swimming pool.
You would like to heat your pool facility even in the cold season? More and more often, climate change means that temperatures in winter are high enough to be able to heat the pool with a solar absorber system. For this, the solar circuit must be separated from the filter circuit and operated as a separate circuit with additional antifreeze. The generated heat is now transferred to the pool water by means of our heat exchangers. Unfortunately, year-round heating to temperatures of 28°C is not possible in Germany with a solar absorber system alone.
If you have any questions about pool heating in winter, please feel free to contact us without obligation. Together we will find the best possible solution for your pool installation.
In 2000 - 2001, the renowned institute for solar energy research ["ISFH"] in Hameln carried out a two-year comparative test for swimming pool solar absorbers per DIN EN 12975, which is unique to this day, with the aim of testing the thermal performance and material stability of the different solar absorber systems in a precise and practical manner. The GEBaU / AQSOL solar absorber system emerged as the test winner from this strict test procedure with the highest useful solar heat yields per unit area and the best quality. Before 2003, the absorber system was distributed by GEBaU-Solarabsorber-System. In 2003, the test-winning system was taken over by AQSOL GmbH and has since been marketed as the AQSOL Solar Absorber System. Learn more about the comparison test here.
A solar pool heater is a particularly popular and cost-saving option for pool heating. No matter whether it's a small private pool or a large swimming pool / outdoor pool. With a solar heating system from AQSOL, you can supply your pool with emission-free heat free of charge and thus extend your pool season by many weeks. Compared to conventional heating methods, this is not only easy on your wallet, but also on the environment.
People often do not know exactly what a solar swimming pool heating system actually is and how it works. Yet it is as simple as it is effective: A solar pool heater converts solar energy into usable heat. To do so, so-called solar absorber fields are connected to the existing water line. The solar system is installed in a location with as much sun as possible (for example, on a roof). The pool water now makes the short diversion through the black solar fields and warms up naturally.
This type of solar technology is also called solar heat. Our solar panels are made of the particularly high-quality synthetic rubber EPDM (in a specially developed compound), which absorbs the solar energy in the best possible way and passes it on to the water.
- Peak efficiencies of up to over 91% (proven in 2-year outdoor test per DIN EN 12975)
- Simple and quick mounting (vertical and horizontal possible)
- Environmentally friendly because emission-free
- Low maintenance costs
- Average operating life of over 25 years
- In Germany, each square metre of absorber surface supplies approximately 300 kWh to 500 kWh over the course of the bathing season (depending on the geographical location).
- Each square metre of absorber surface area saves around 40 litres of oil per bathing season.
- Each square metre of absorber surface avoids the emission of around 90 kg of CO² each bathing season.
- Automatic control for optimum utilisation of solar energy possible
- The absorber is absolutely frost-proof and can be walked on, even when full
- Can be mounted on any roof (the absorber system adapts to any roof shape)
- Particularly large absorption area per square metre due to very close proximity of the water-bearing tubes
- The absorber sheets can be easily repaired if damaged
Our recommendations for the size of the absorber array are based on many years of experience. The aim is to heat swimming pools comfortably using solar energy alone (without additional heating).
The optimal size of the AQSOL absorber field is - may be slightly different due to the geographical location:
- For pools without pool cover: Absorber field = 75%* of the pool area
- For pools with pool cover: Absorber field = 60%* of the pool area
- For indoor pools without direct sunlight: Absorber field = 100%* of the pool area
Of course, other field sizes can be selected if, for example, smaller roof installation areas are available or special temperature requirements exist.
* valid for the particularly powerful AQSOL solar absorber system with a pool depth of approx. 1.5 m
In an average utilisation period of 25 years, the particularly powerful AQSOL solar absorber system generates approximately 7,500 kWh of solar energy per m² of absorber surface. With today's costs for a completely installed, ready-to-operate AQSOL solar absorber system of EUR 65 to EUR 130 per square metre of absorber surface (range depending on the object), this results in a "solar energy price" of 0.85 to 1.7 Ct/kWh, based on the investment and the period of use.
The energy prices for gas and oil alone (investment costs not yet taken into account) are already far above these "solar energy costs", and continued price increases for fossil energy sources can be certainly be assumed. The so-called "solar energy price", on the other hand, is zero for this period of the investment and is thus stable over 25 years.
Apart from the financial aspect, the most decisive argument for a solar system in this day and age is the contribution it makes to the environment and climate protection. None of our valuable raw materials are consumed. Conclusion: A solar system is not only ecologically but also economically recommendable.
There are many reasons for choosing a solar pool heating system. First and foremost, of course, you benefit from the cost savings. Conventional pool heaters produce continuous energy costs that can usually be saved completely with a solar system. The environmental aspect also plays a very important role these days. With a solar heating system from AQSOL, you produce completely emission-free heat for your pool and also enjoy the luxury of being completely independent of price trends on the energy market. But that is not all. A pool solar heater is available in individual dimensions. From small private pools in the garden to outdoor pools and large swimming pool complexes. Compared to other pool heaters, the AQSOL solar heater can always be perfectly tailored to the respective size of the pool or swimming pool facility.
