Justin installed a system for Alan and Elizabeth Edwards, primarily for pool heating. Justin writes:
Alan and Elizabeth Edwards based in Kempsey Worcester
originally wanted a solar heating system to be installed to heat their outdoor
swimming pool during the summer. They had previously relied on a 6KW
electric heater positioned in the filtration pipework to heat the pool. The
heater had been changed twice within 12 months after burning out, so it was both
expensive and unreliable! The pool had not been used in 2008 due to lack
25 Metres of Armacell Duo-flex Solar Stainless Steel
flexible pipe was used to speed install time and reduce joints. A trench was dug
at 200mm deep by 150mm wide with a length of 8 Metres (thanks to Ali for digging
the trench for me!) This would be used to run pipework from the property
to the swimming pool. The Duo-flex was then passed through a 110mm pipe the
length of the trench to the swimming pool while running up the wall into the
property using purpose built wall clips for a tidy finish. An auxiliary relay
was used to operate the pool pump when exchanging heat for the solar circuit to
the pool water within the exchanger.
Thanks to Alan and Elizabeth Edwards and to Justin for this information.
