How much will you need?

The PoolSolar kit is available in 2 sizes, 4m2 5m2.

Some pool sizes result in requiring an additional half box, but this is not possible to supply. Therefore, we have shown the minimum and optimum number of rolls required. For above ground swimming pools we have reduced the amount of solar collectors by 20% to allow for heat absorbtion through the steel wall structure.

Note. You will need to purchase enough solar matting to cover 50% of the pool surface area.

Pool Solar Box

The 4m2 – 4 units of solar collectors, each 33cmx 3m (4m²)(and o-rings)
8 metre nylon band to attach the headers and the absorber

The 5m2 – 3 units of solar collectors, each 33cmx 5m (5m²)(and o-rings)
10 metre nylon band to attach the headers and the absorber

In addition to the solar collectors & nylon band, both boxes contain:

  • repair set and lubricant
  • two adaptors 50mm in black ABS
  • two threaded adaptors 1½” in black ABS
  • two reducing sockets in black ABS
  • one threaded stop 1½” in black ABS
  • tie-wraps
  • installation guide

In addition, you may also need the following:

  • PoolSolar Vacuum Breaker (for installations above 4m high)
  • 3 Way Valve
  • Roof Support Angle
  • Roof Fixing Paste
  • Solar Control System
  • Booster Pump 0.5hp Aquamite (7000lt/1540gls)
  • Booster Pump Sun Sensor

If a heat retention cover is not to be applied overnight you will need to double the quantities below.
