About Eco Solar
Eco Solar is a veteran owned business. Its mission is to design and install solar pool heating and swimming pool filtration systems that use substantially less electricity than systems installed by any of its competitors.
When you choose Eco Solar to heat your pool with solar energy, you will be heating and filtering your swimming pool for about 1/3 the energy that your microwave oven uses. That’s correct, less than 400 watts per hour for everything. No other solar or pool company is anywhere close to designing systems with this amazing energy efficiency.
All swimming pools use electricity because an electrical circulation pump is required to filter, heat and move the pool water throughout the system. Solar heating systems add more pipe, valves and fittings to push water through adding even more work for the pump because the panels are on the roof. So during the swim season the electric bill can jump significantly because the pump is running up to 8 hours daily and doing more work because it has to push through the solar panels up to 12 feet off the ground on a 1 story roof or 23 feet on a 2 story roof.
If you have a variable speed pump it can do this work for a lot less electricity if the system is designed correctly. But guess what. Over 90% of the solar pool heating companies in business today are using the old school method of circulating water through the panels. I learned this outdated method at every solar company I worked for during my first 27 years in solar. It heats the water very well but puts a big spike on your PGE bill. So if you want to have a warm pool and be environmentally responsible at the same time, you do not want to use the old school method.
My solar heated pool in concord has 15 panels totaling 688 square feet of collector, larger than 90% of most residential swimming pool solar systems. During the swim season the water is crystal clear averaging about 85 degrees and my pump is using the same energy that 3 1/2 light bulbs use. That is circulating 10 tons of water every hour through the entire pool filtration and solar heating system. That is absolutely amazing.
We can do that for you too. But we won’t be using the old school method that every other solar company will propose.
Yes, science does matter!
