Work well but not long lasting Review by Greg
I installed the solar panels on a roof 5 years ago, they work well but every year they develop more holes and I replaced two of the four 3 years ago and now 2 of the 4 have major leaks. The cost and effort to keep them up is not worth it in the long run. I drained the panels and blew out the remaining water with air before each winter.
awesome when new, holes in 2nd year. Review by in the rockies
I am just getting ready to open my collectors for the 3rd year. Guess what I have a large whole in one panel tube, plus all the tubes broke apart in one collector over the winter, making them more fragile. I most certainly got all the water out of the tubes last fall and spent days
drying them out.
The Panels seem to be working very good temps keep rising so far Review by Handyman
My only gripe is that they seem to cost so much more than the above ground pool ones other than that I am very very happy with them. I have an 18 by 36 in ground swimming pool that is indoors and the room does not have that many skylights to warm the pool I bought 4 kits of the solar panels and set them up on the ground and I capture around 7 hrs of direct sunlight and so far on each hot sunny day I have seen the pool water increase in temperature by 2 degrease each day my pool started at around 70 and is 82 now and it is so much better. Looking forward to mid 80 temps. I know it would do better if they were on a hot roof from the help of a hot attic below them and more hrs of direct sun light. I hooked the panels together so the water flows thru 2 panels at a time till the water gets to the end and back to the pool I also installed a larger filter pump I went to a 1HP from 3/4 HP I connected the panels that way to help make the system less restrictive to get better flow. Even being connected this way it still adds a lot of back pressure to the filter system so I decided to let some water bypass the heating system to help the skimmers work better and have more water flow into the pool it has reduced back pressure on the filter system just slowed the flow thru the panels a little but still pulling the heat from the panels and sending it to the pool It is working so great. I was thinking of trying hooking it up like they show fore roof mounting they flow thru all panels at once from say left to right very low restriction that way but there book shows for on ground installations to make the water flow from one panel at a time zig zagging back and fourth to the end I looked at that and thought to my self that would be awful restrictive and really bog things down so I modified it the way I said. I had called the company for advice but they never returned my call which I found very annoying because I was in a hurry to get these installed. Well I think the product is awesome. The company that did not return my call was the panel company not Doheny's I hope this info will be helpful. ps today was the first time I was in the pool for years and 82 is still pretty chilly but much better than it was before and hoping the temp goes up higher still each day its sunny and hot it keeps getting 2 degrease hotter very faithfully I know its got to stop somewhere hopefully get this pool comfortable.
Solar Collector Heating System Review by Guest
This system is awesome! We have a 20' x 40' pool and purchased the four collector system. My son in law installed it and found the instructions and hardware that were provided to be complete in every way. The system works great!! Living here in Omaha, NE this system is a must to be able to add to our swimming season!
