6 Ways to get the most from Solar Pool heating… in Bundaberg.

Zane Solar collector near Solar Hot water system

1/   Check the lint filter which will be installed in line near the pool pump as this will effect to flow to the Solar Collectors on the roof. Just unscrew the end and pull out the stainless steel gauze filter , then wash off with a hose. Without this filter your solar collector will block and cause further problems.

2/  Check the top out temperature which determines the targeted temperature for the system…if this is set too low the system will not achieve the maximum heat transfer. Raise this temperature to 28 degrees and your heating system will operate until you reach the higher temp.

3/  Check the collector on the roof to see how dusty it is… grab a soft broom and a hose and give it a clean down so you get the most from the available heat.

4/  Install a pool blanket and go for the better quality ones to both retain most heat and absorb extra heat.. often up to 3-4 degrees, with some manufacturers claiming more this is on the conservative side.

5/  Check for overhanging branches both on the pool and over the roof where the collector is installed to remove potential shade and there fore heat transfer…in short trim them up out of the way.. more sunlight, more heat. Sometimes when this is not possible and the system becomes less efficient adding a small heat pump may be the only solution when you want to extend your swimming season.

6/   When you are serious about extending you swimming season look at installing more collector to get the most form the system… using  the existing circulation system then adding collector will be FREE heating as its cost no more than you are already paying.

These are some of the best ways to improve the efficiency of your existing Solar Pool heating system. When you want more heat in your pool consider adding a heatpump which are becoming far more affordable. Use the FREE heat you get from the Solar then adding a heat pump will allow you to swim 365 days a year especially when there is no sunlight.  This will minimise the normal costs that would be involved with Heat Pump only installations.

Composite timber decking to courtyard in Bundaberg

Transforming this simple grassed backyard into a stunning and functional entertaining areas required a vision of the clients needs for the use of this area. This is the look af the area before the Lifestyle Solutions Landscaping team started construction.

Where composite decking is to be placed a concrete base is required, then exposed agg laid either side of the decking. Then view the landscaping as its complete to see what a complete transition this had made to the entertaining area. Also very functional in wet weather as its no longer a boggy mess.

See how the composite decking is fixed with the cleva clips that fix between the boards not from on top.. so there is no nails to putty up..

Overall very impressive finish to the project… check out the final video.

Thanks to all the Team at Lifestyle Solutions in Bundaberg for an awesome job.
