Heliocol Solar Pool Heating


Often imitated, never duplicated. Other solar companies have tried using every shape, design and material imaginable to capture the power of the sun for pool heating, but none have come close to Heliocol’s performance, durability, aesthetics and ease of installation.

For decades, the competition has tried to imitate Heliocol's designs, warranty and applications but none have matched their success. Backed by years of precision engineering, the best materials and exceptional attention to detail, we’ve maintained our position at the head of the pack since 1977.

Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in our case, flattery gets you nowhere.

Beginning in 1977, we revolutionized solar pool heating by developing the world’s first collector with individual tubes. The advantages were immediately obvious; improved efficiency, unmatched wind resistance and better roof protection.

Heliocol’s phenomenal wind resistance led to the first strapless mounting system. Other panels, which lift like a sail or an airplane wing in heavy winds, require multiple straps to hold the panel to the roof. Heliocol, on the other hand, is secured directly to the roof trusses with our patented Gator clamp. This mounting system is not only more stable, but requires significantly fewer penetrations into your roof.

Heliocol was the first solar pool heating system to connect panels using a breakthrough plastic polymer clamp. Our patented panel clamp is a sophisticated replacement for old-style rubber hoses and metal clamps. Unlike rubber hoses, which can degrade and stain your roof, and metal clamps, which require regular rooftop service, our clamps offer the only maintenance-free solution.

Engineered For Life

Engineered For Life

The driving force behind Heliocol’s incomparable design is our team of exceptional research and development engineers. The technical and engineering expertise of our research staff, coupled with a relentless pursuit of continuous product improvement, has led to an impressive portfolio of registered innovative patents and intellectual property assets.

Overmolded Header

  • Heliocol’s patented overmolded header ensures the strongest possible connection between tubing because the header is actually formed around each individual tube.
  • One-piece construction eliminates welds and allows the collector to expand and contract with temperature changes.
  • The overmolded design also gives each individual tube full-flow access to the header, virtually eliminating back pressure and saving wear and tear on your pool pump.

Gator Clamp

  • Heliocol’s patented Gator clamp mounting system eliminates the need for straps, securing the panels with fewer roof penetrations.
  • The clamps also allow the headers to expand and contract with temperature variations, never cutting into the collector and never restricting water flow.
  • Gator clamps and Heliocol panels are engineered for maximum compatibility with each other and your roof. The Heliocol mounting system is designed to attach directly to your roof trusses.

Individual Tubes

  • Heliocol’s patented individual tube design resists lift, keeping the panels in place even in high winds.
  • The open design also protects the roof surface from rain rot, allowing rapid moisture evaporation.

Panel Clamps

  • Heliocol’s patented panel clamps replace old-style rubber hoses and metal clamps that require regular rooftop maintenance and replacement.
  • These durable, specially-engineered clamps never require replacement, never need to be tightened and, unlike rubber hoses, will not degrade and stain your roof over time.
  • Panel clamps allow panels to be mounted closer together for a more attractive and more efficient system with no wasted space.

Pipe Connectors

  • Heliocol’s CPVC pipe connectors provide more flexibility in installations. When a connection between panels is extended to accommodate obstructions on the roof, Heliocol’s pipe connectors work in conjunction with the panel clamps to provide a seamless, reliable coupling.

The balance between design excellence and rugged durability make Heliocol the logical choice for any commercial application. Heliocol’s flagship installations include pool heating systems for the Summer Olympic Games, exclusive resorts, military installations, major universities, hospitals, corporations and government officials.

Rapid Payback

Commercial Heliocol systems typically pay for themselves in less than 3 years, are maintenance-free, require zero additional maintenance cost and have a life expectancy of 20 years. On average, a 100-panel system will save 2,400 gallons of LP fuel per month while reducing caustic environmental pollutants. The US Department of Energy states that commercial solar pool heating is the most effective application of renewable energy available today.

Warranty Leadership

Heliocol has been the leader in the solar industry by introducing unsurpassed commercial investment protection with warranties that include panels, labor, parts and freeze protection. Heliocol’s extensive and unprecedented warranty protection has been serviced for more than 20 years.

Professional Design & Installation

Heliocol’s worldwide network of solar professionals assure you a quality, well-engineered and worry-free installation from start to finish. A free performance and investment analysis will show just how much a Heliocol solar pool heating system can save your business year after year.

Experience & Certifications

Heliocol is the largest manufacturer of solar collectors in the world and our collectors have been in continuous production since 1977. Heliocol was the first solar collector to receive ISO 9001 certification and has maintained that certification every year since 1998. Heliocol is also the only solar system certified with ISO 14001, which is more stringent and meets not only quality control standards, but environmental standards. Heliocol is additionally NSF-50 listed by the National Sanitation Foundation, ensuring the safety and durability of our products when used in public or commercial swimming pools, spas and other recreational water facilities. Other certifications include SRCC OG-100, FSEC, IAPMO, Dade County, the City of Los Angeles, the German Technological Institute, the Mexican Technological Institute, the Greek Technological Institute, the Brazilian Solar Energy Center and the Israeli Standards Institute.

Why do more than 200,000 customers worldwide heat their pools with Heliocol? Because with Heliocol you can:

Extend Your Swimming Season

A Heliocol solar pool heating installation will double your swim season in any climate. In warmer regions, swimmers can enjoy their pool virtually year-round! A swimming pool is a significant investment and should be enjoyed to its fullest extent. You wouldn’t give up driving your car for several months out of the year, why give up swimming in your pool?

Forget About Maintenance

With no moving parts and durable, proven construction, Heliocol systems don’t require the maintenance costs associated with other types of pool heating systems. Heliocol panels are built to endure with a 12 year full warranty and a limited lifetime warranty. It isn’t unusual for a Heliocol system to outlast the roof it’s installed on. Gas and electric pool heaters, by contrast, have to be replaced every seven to ten years. With Heliocol, you spend more time swimming and less time worrying about your pool heating system.

Increase Your Property Values

According to an article in the Appraisal Journal, for every utility bill dollar saved annually because of an improvement, homeowners gain $10 to $20 in property value. By reducing your electric bill by $1,300 in the first year, you could increase your property value by as much as $26,000. Why the increase in value? Home buyers are willing to pay more for homes that promise clean, reliable energy savings. In some communities, a home outfitted with solar energy systems will sell much faster than conventional homes.

Protect Your Budget From Increasing Energy Costs

The cost of natural gas and electricity continually increase, taking an increasingly large bite out of your budget. You can protect yourself against these increases and stabilize your monthly expenditures by taking advantage of solar energy, free now and free in the future.
