Here are a couple of pictures of an iSwim solar pool heating system installed recently in Cape Coral, FL. The system consists of seven 4’x12′ panels on a tile roof. This multi-roof system is more than adequate for the 320 square foot pool, and will provide virtually year-round comfortable swimming for the owners.
We had to span one roof obstruction (a plumbing vent), and jump over a couple of ridges, but otherwise this was a straightforward design and installation that we see often. Cape Coral is a haven for pools, and as a result we see a lot of solar pool heating installations there. This type of roof is no problem, and most homes in the City are oriented square to true north with at least two roofs that are suitable for solar panels. That makes our job a bit easier in terms of system design, and provides more flexibility and ability to meet pool heating requirements.
