We have the Best Engineered Solar Collectors, which happen to be the Best Looking

The newest branded solar pool heating system is the best and most efficient design that had been worked on around the clock by the engineers at Solar Hydronics Corp. This product took on the name iSwim by its developers. “How can we make it collect more BTUs?” is always the first question from the pool heater engineers on what needs improvements. Engineers can add more burners to a gas heater, or additional heater coils to an electric one. Solar pool heaters take more in depth planning for any viable improvements to be accurate.

Automatic controls are your friend with this system. Simply set the controller to the desired pool temperature and this solar pool heating system will do the rest. See? That’s it! Just like any thermostat, this will automatically divert the water to your solar pool heating system when it becomes too cold. The controller can actually sense when there is adequate sunlight to heat the pool. When the water flows up through the solar collectors, it is heated by the sun’s energy, and no additional energy on your part is required. Now the heated water makes its way back into your swimming pool and the cycle will continue until the pool has reached the temperature you desire.

Is the pool too warm in the summer? No problem! If you run your iSwim system at night, you can actually cool your pool during the warmer months. To help you maintain that perfect temperature, your iSwim controller can automatically switch to cooling the pool.

*Disclaimer: a manual control valve can be used to control your solar system if you live in a warmer climate with infrequent rain during the swimming season.
