2.General Information
This manual provides information relating to the installation, utilization and maintenance of our solar heater. We recommend you
read this manual in its entirety and keep it for future reference.
The solar heater you just purchased for your above ground pool is simple to install and effortless to operate once connected. The
installation instructions included in this manual are based on a few assumptions: 1) you have an existing above ground pool that is
completely set up and filled with water, 2) your above ground pool is equipped with a pump-operated water filtering system, and 3)
you have the necessary hoses needed to feed water in and out of your pool and filter system.
These assumptions are necessary as the solar heater, once installed, will be completely dependent upon your pool’s filter pump to
push water in and through the heater’s solar coils.
How It Works
When properly installed, the solar heater will be connected to your filter and your pool by two hose connections: One hose will feed
cold, filtered pool water from your pump into one port of the solar heater. The other hose will feed sun warmed water from the other
port of the solar heater to your pool via the pool return inlet in your pool. As cold water is fed into the solar heater, it travels through
the solar coils where it is heated by the sun before it is delivered back into your swimming pool.
Unpacking Your Solar Heater
Carefully remove the product and all component parts from the box. Make certain all parts are present before beginning assembly.
(see Section 2, Parts List/Reference).
Refer to Appendix for a complete EXPLODED VIEW PARTS DIAGRAM.
Tools & Equipment Required
The following items are not included with your new solar heater, but will be required for proper installation and operation:
• #2 Phillips screwdriver
• ¼" Flat head screwdriver
• Silicone based lubricant
Know Your Pool
Before you begin installation it is a good idea to know certain specifications about your pool:
How big is your pool?
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
4
How many gallons does it hold?
What size hose does it use? (i.e. 1¼” dia, 1½” dia or 2¼” dia)
What kind of hose connection does your pool use? (i.e. threaded/unthreaded)
What location will position the heater for maximum sun exposure?
Solar Heater Location
Your solar heater needs to be located on a hard level surface. You will need to position the heater lower than the pool’s water level
and at a safe distance away from the pool (see Section 1, Safety Warnings).
• The unit(s) should never be placed on the roof of any structure, or more than 60” above the water level of the pool.
• The unit(s) may be angled toward the sun using the legs provided. Do not exceed the angle the legs
produces, or 30 degrees from horizontal in any direction.
NOTE: The solar heater is to be installed between the filter and the pool water inlet, AFTER the water is
filtered. The heater must come after the filter to prevent buildup in the tubing.
IMPORTANT: If you are using a chlorine generator OR an in line chlorinator, it must be connected in-line
following the solar heater to prevent damage to the heater.
Caution
Before loosening any threaded connections on your filter, pump or pool, be sure that
the suction and pressure hoses on the filter are closed or blocked to prevent water flow.

Installation Instructions
Heater – Filter – Pool Layout
The system layouts below will help you install the solar heater(s) to your above ground pool.
BEFORE INSTALLING SOLAR HEATER
AFTER INSTALLING SOLAR HEATER
NOTE: Not shown to scale
Heater - Pool Connections
These instructions assume that the pool and filter system are already assembled
and there is a hose attached to the pool return (pool water inlet).
Place the solar heater in a location where it will receive the greatest amount
of sunlight and at least 10 feet away from pool.
NOTE: Hose connectors may come preinstalled.
1) Heater - Filter Pump Connection
a) Turn off filter pump.
b) Block water flow at both the pool return inlet and the filter pump outlet
to prevent water from flowing through the hoses.
c) Detach the pool return hose from your filter system and set aside.
NOTE: If you are using an INTEX® filter, remove the
hose adapter from the filter port as well.
d) Locate the side hose connector and insert it into the side hose connection
opening – it is keyed to fit one way only – and turn counterclockwise to lock
into place. It will turn about a ¼ turn to fully lock in place.
e) Locate long filter hose and attach between pump (the port where the pool return
hose was previously connected.) and the side hose connector using
the included hose clamps .
NOTE: depending on the size of your hose, the 1¼”-1½” reducer may need
to be used. Insert the reducer inside of the long filter hose and attach using
hose clamp. Apply a small amount of silicon based lubricant to the outside
of the side connector to allow an easy fit (see figure 1).

4) Solar Heater System
The basic solar heater assembly should resemble the set in figure 4.
NOTE: If solar heater needs to be further from the filter than the
hoses allow, you may need to purchase a longer hose with the
1½” diameter openings. A 1½”-1½” coupler is needed to allow you
to connect an additional hose if necessary (not included). In this
case make certain you have two hose clamps to secure the hoses to
the coupler. If the hoses are too wide to fit the hose connector, put the
1¼”-1½” tube reducer on the hose connector and continue.

5.
Initial Operation
Once the solar heater has been assembled and the hoses are connected to the filter pump and pool return, unblock the flow of water
into the pool return hose and turn on the pump and filter system. Bubbles will shoot out of the return nozzle into the pool initially
while air is pushed out of the solar heater. If this persists for longer than 2 or 3 minutes, check for and repair any leaks in the hoses
or connections.
NOTE: Be sure to place your pool cover on at night to prevent heat loss.
6.Maintenance
To prevent damage, the solar coils should always be covered with the clear acrylic dome included in the package. The solar heater
should not require servicing or maintenance other than winterizing. Prior to the first frost, or at the end of your swim season, the
solar heater should be removed from its connections to the pool and stored in a frost free location.
Cloth Cover
A dome cover is included which can be used to cover the solar heater during the hottest days when your pool water does not need
additional heating assistance.
Winterizing
Drain all the water from the solar heater by disconnecting the tubes. Store in a location protected from frost. Reconnect the pool
return tubes with a 1½”-1½” coupler (not included) or any properly sized 2-way valve if continued pool use is desired.
Caution
Do NOT allow standing water inside the solar heater to freeze. Water expands as it freezes and can rupture the solar coils on the heater.
7.Troubleshooting
Problem
Possibilities/Solutions
Does not appear to be heating the
pool.
• Check to make sure that water is flowing through the tubes. Check the flow strength at
the pool inlet.
• Has it been sunny?
• Put your pool cover on at night to prevent heat loss.
• Additional heaters may be necessary.
No initial bubbling after heater is
connected and pump is on.
• Check the setting of the filter to make sure it is returning water to the pool through the
pool water inlet.
• Check flow rate.
Bubbles continue
to flow out of the pool water inlet well
after the pump has been turned on.
• Check the connections for a suction leak.
• Check to make sure the flow rate is normal.
• There could be a break in the tubing.
• There could be a clog in the tubing, try to purge out
the clog.
Leaking heater
