The SunGrabber solar heating system will quickly heat your swimming pool with free, reliable heat from the sun. A properly sized solar system will provide virtually all of the heat for your pool - free! Sungrabber captures the free renewable energy from the sun to heat your pool, reducing or even eliminating your water heating bill and reducing the amount of electricity you use. The system circulates pool water through solar panels and uses solar energy to warm the water as it returns to the pool. Our panels feature 1-1/2" headers, which allow for excellent circulation through the solar panels, thereby maximizing the solar efficiency. Additional panels can be added to the system to achieve optimal heating capacity. For total solar heating, the solar panel square footage should be at least equal to 50% of the pool's surface area. Our SunGrabber Solar System can supply 100% of your pool's heating needs. Comes with easy to follow instructions for a simple do-it-yourself project.

If you are looking for a 10 degree rise in temps, you need to figure the same surface area of panels as your pool surface area. This can take up much space in your yard. If you only use one panel on a large pool you will not “feel” warm water coming out of the return lines, although it will still be heating your pool a few degrees. However, you will have no way to measure the increase. Most people want to feel the warm water coming out of the returns to feel good about using their purchase. I put 100% of my pumps water through 4 panels with no diminished flow, if you were to use only one, you will need to ad a valve that will partially bypass some of the water to avoid low water flow. You can only push so much flow through each panel.
Keep in mind there are 2 kinds of these panels- ones that leak and ones that will leak. The longest I have had one stay dry is 7 years but have had some go in 6 months. Think about this when you are mounting them, on the ground is much easier to repair than on a steep roof. They are not “set and forget”.
I have mine paired with a Hayward solar GL-235 controller and a GV A-24 valve for automated temp control, they work well.
1) Water coming out of panels is hot to the touch - it does do a good job of heating the pool - but without a cover, we loose most of the heat it generates during the day. A cover is still a must.
2) When first installed the system (using pool hose pieces and 2in couplers), the supply line hose expanded out to twice it's length - did not blow but eventually did after about a week. My inlet to the panels are ~18ft from my pump. The exit line sees no high pressure. I had to replace the supply side with the white "hot tub 2in hose" (higher pressure) - got it from Lowes.
3) The panel inlet size is really TOO small to accept a 2in hose and ALMOST too tight for a 1.5in - but with the white hot tub hose you have no choice - had to use a 2in to 1.5in coupler and a small piece of the 1.5in clear web-reinforced hose - without this the 2in would NOT crimp down to the panel inlet.
4) Water flow thru the panel system is MUCH less - thus it does not filter the water as efficiently - every 3-4 nights I open up my bypass (which is very simple to make out of PVC) - to get the water cleaned up.
5) MAKE SURE you come up with a way to hold panels down to the ground - mine almost got trashed after first storm. I just used bent re-bar into u shape and hammered into ground around the panel tubes - both ends.
