3. Product Description
The Heliocol Swimming Pool Solar Heating
System uses the sun's energy to heat commer-
ciol ond residential swimming pools. Heliocol
solar collector systems heat thousands of gal-
lons of water to temperatures under
95 degrees F (35 degrees C) by dirculating the
water through solar collectors. Pool tempera-
ture is set using an automatic controller.
Using the existing pool pump, pool water is
directed by a controlled valve to the solar
collectors. Pool water enters the bottom of
the solar collectors and rises to the top
through the individual collector tubes. As the
water flows through the collector, it is heated
by the sun's radiant energy. The water then
returns to the pool. This cycle is repeated until
the pool is sufficiently warmed by the sun and
the desired temperature is reached.
In some climates, the swimming pool can
naturally reach uncomfortable temperatures
during peak summer months. The Heliocol
system can dissipate excess heat in the pool
by circulating the water through the collectors
at night.
Heliocol solar collectors can be installed on
the roof, on the ground, on racks or in any
area near the pool that provides the proper
exposure, orientation and tilt toward the sun.
Heliocol ponels are made of polypropylene
with special ultraviolet inhibitor additives. The
polymer material has been tested in autho-
rzed labs and proven stable against the
effects of sustained UV radiation, extreme

weather conditions and aging. It is also certi-
fied for use as a plastic for foodstuffs contact
applications and is highly durable against cor-
rosion and scaling: chlorine, bromine, iodine,
HCL and other swimming pool chemicals; and
salt and sea water,
The solar collector panel consists of individual
riser tubes that allow for expansion and con-
traction to help eliminate cracks and leaks, опа
minimize wind effects on the panel to create
mechanical stability, Spacer bars prevent panel
distortion and riser tube abrasion over time due
to thermal expansion. Fins add strength to the
unit while preventing differential thermal expan-
sion and system distortion.
An overmolding process connects the spacer
bars, riser tubes and fins to the manifold header,
eliminating welds and resulting in a panel that is
one plastic unit, All parts are rounded to avoid
stress concentration or the risk of bursting at
high pressure. Collector panels are modular to
enable fast, firm connections between them
and allow any desired absorption area for any
roof type. Parts and fittings are plastic and
allow simple connection between panels and
standard plumbing pipes.
The Gator Clamp mounting hardware and
PPC panel camps are manufactured using a
proprietary formula of polypropylene. Both are
unique components exclusive to the Heliocol
collector system. The Gator Clamp mounting
assembly allows the collector header to be
mounted at variable points for a secure con-

nection to trusses or beams.
The PPC panel cilomp assembly allows the
internal gasket between the flanged headers
to compress when fully engaged, thus forming
a perfect watertight seal. This eliminates the
common practice of employing a rubber hose
connection between collectors and the unsight-
ly gap between them. The result is a smaller
footprint for the overall system, since PPC panel
clamps are 1" (264 mm) wide and rubber hose
couplings are 4" (102 mm) wide,
Heliocol offers several swimming pool solar col-
lector models that vary according to size, vol-
ume capacity, recommended flow rate, BTUs
generated per day and other parameters. See
Table 2 for system model comparisons.
