A heated pool is a luxury that allows you to enjoy your swimming pool all year round, unfortunately, heaters can be costly. Fortunately, solar pool heating DIY kits enable you to heat your pool without any heaters. Giving you a cost-effective and easy-to-install way to enjoy your pool no matter the season.

How they work

Solar pool heating DIY kits use solar panels mounted on a roof close to your pool to heat the water. The pool water is pumped from the pool through the filter, and then up to the solar panels. As the water flows through the solar panel pipes the heat from the panels is transferred to the water. The heated water then flows back to the pool for you to enjoy. These solar pool heating DIY kits include a bypass valve and two ball valves allowing you to close out the solar panels when you don’t want the pool heated, or at night. Therefore, you have total control over the temperature of your pool.

Unobtrusive design

While there are alternatives to solar pool heating DIY kits, like solar rings, that work to heat your pool. Other options are often obtrusive, like in the example of solar rings that float on your pool to heat it. Whereas solar pool heating DIY kits integrate into your existing filter system, heating your pool without getting in the way, or making your pool an eyesore.


These solar pool heating DIY kits include everything you need to do it yourself. Including 500ml PVC glue, various PVC pipe fittings, a vacuum breaker, and solar panels. Meaning you will only need your tools like your ladder, drill, hacksaw, and other standard tools any DIY enthusiast should own. These solar pool heating DIY kits give you the benefits of a heated pool and the satisfaction of a job well done, that only comes from completing a DIY project.

Solar panel capacity

These solar pool heating DIY kits come with four solar panels (3m long and 1.25m wide). These are sufficient for outdoor pools in the full sun of up to 25000L or with a surface area of approximately 18m², without a cover. With a cover which helps to trap the heat overnight, they are sufficient for pools up to 48000L or with a surface area of approximately 32m² in the same conditions. Making these solar pool heating DIY kits sufficient for most pools. 

As you can see the number of solar panels required depends on many factors including pool size, how much sun it gets, and if you use a cover or not. Therefore, it is advised to speak to a pool specialist so they can advise you on the best option for your unique circumstances.

Eco-friendly and power saving

These solar pool heating DIY kits are both eco-friendly and power-saving when compared to other pool heaters. As they use the heat from natural sunlight to warm your pool, there is no extra cost to your electricity bill. Additionally, they cause no harm to the environment by using electricity, except the electricity already used by your pool pump. These solar pool heating DIY kits are the most cost-effective and eco-friendly way to heat your pool on the market today.
