Everything you need to know about solar pool heating!

Solarponics is the exclusive authorized installer of Heliocol, the world leader in solar pool heating systems. Heliocol solar pool heating systems were installed at Georgia Tech Aquatic Center for the 1996 Summer Olympic Games, in Athens Greece for the 2004 Summer Olympic Games and at the Beijing National Aquatics Center for the 2008 Summer Olympic games. These are the same panels we install on your home. How cool is that, or should we say, warm.

“During the quote process, Roy took time to even talk with the pool contractor. That one conversation saved us a lot of money.” - Ellen Curtis, Templeton, CA


Pool solar panels heat water by capturing the heat of the sun and transferring it to your pools water using absorbent tubes. Water travels through the pool filter pump and then passes through the pool heater (when present), so that when necessary, the heater can act as a step-up for the controller. This sold pool heating system keeps your pool warm for months longer than normal! Homeowners report being able to swim up to four months longer per year than they could before their solar pool heating system. Request a solar energy quote today! Extend you pool season.






Part of Heliocol’s increased efficiency comes from its one-of-a-kind individual tube design. Not only do Heliocol’s individual tubes create more heat than other types of collectors, round tubes are the most efficient means of absorbing the sun’s energy. Heliocol’s patented individual tube design allows for maximum absorption of the sun’s heat all day long, unlike other panels which are most efficient only at solar noon. A Heliocol solar pool heating system, for example,  will cost $30 / yr to operate, vs. $ 1,704 if using natural gas. In addition, Heliocol panels produce 29% more energy than traditional solar pool panels.  As the area's only certified installer of Heliocol, Solarponics will make sure your solar pool heating system is trouble-free, optimizes for maximum savings, and delivers the longest pool season.

Heliocol is also more efficient thanks to its flexible design and patented mounting system. Heliocol solar panels come in a wide variety of sizes and fit snugly on your rooftop, without unsightly gaps. With less wasted space, you can pack more power on every rooftop using Heliocol.

“The level of customer service and the skill of your technicians sets Solarponics far apart from other contractors which I have dealt.” –Bill Casey, King City, CA 


Solarponics Heliocol pool systems are made with a patented plastic panel clamp, not metal, which requires little or no maintainance. With only three components to the Heliocol system, the panels, the filter and the pump, the system is virtually indestructible. Unlike solar water heaters for indoor use, solar pool heaters do not require a storage tank. Your pool provides all the storage required. Request a solar energy quote today!
