Pool Heating Ascetics

krobe_2 Member Posts: 4
Are there any pool heating systems available that may be more ascetically pleasing than the conventional black tube and pipes?  The area is NJ coast hi end homes and looks and state of the art are a priority.

    Paint it Elm Green...

    That's almost as absorptive as flat black.

    FAFCO seems to make one of the better looking collectors I've seen..

    helio-pool, looks more like a standard collector. Is it the tubes or the black color? Many or the new flat plate collectors use a purple colored absorber, looks a bit different than a black box.

    A few manufacturers have collectors that flash into the roof like a skylite.

    I saw this company at one of the solar shows. They build custom frames to your wildest imagination.

    Pool (or and Solar) Heating Ascetics

    Have you looked into Velux Flat Plate Collectors?  In My opinion one of the better BIST (Building Integrated Solar Thermal)  collectors on the American Market.


    Here's a picture where we ganged two panels with a rack of Skylights......
