Today we are going to learn how to make a solar heater for our pool ourselves, for those who have it and those who do not have it here have ideas to make a home pool. With this home solar heater we can heat the water in a small pool easily and cheaply.
- Type T lead.
- Two 90º elbows.
- Stopcock the size of the tube.
- 60 meters of 20 mm black polyethylene tube or similar, if you can get it recycled better than better.
- 120 x 120 cm plywood.
- Screws, fixings and black paint.
Solar heater construction scheme.
Home pool heater manufacturing instructions.
First we will remove the bypass so that a part of the filtered water goes to the secondary circuit where we will install our heater, as you can see in the diagram.
The base of the heater will be a 120cm x 120cm plywood plank painted black. We will drill a hole the size of the pipe in the center. In one of the corners we will make another hole of the same size, and we will have the water inlet and outlet of the heater.
We must introduce the pipe, part of the back of the board, through the outer hole and start to draw circles with the pipe, the more circles we make, the more water we can heat at the same time. We will get to the center of the board and take the pipe through the central hole, we will place an elbow to make it easier.
The lower part will be connected to the derivation with its stopcock after the chlorinator and at the end we will put the necessary pipe from the center of the board to the pool.
The heater can be covered with glass or plastic to increase the temperature, but this is optional.
The heater should be placed at an angle of 45º, depending on where we live, so that with this angle, better use the sun’s rays.
The system is capable of heating the water in a 14,000 liter pool, on a sunny day, to 18ºC to 22ºC.
