Unique design characteristics make Heliocol one of the best solar pool heating options available. Heliocol provides more heat per roof than any other system on the market, works to protect your roof, and designed to last both the test of time and weather.
Heliocol solar panels contain individual tubes, a patented mounting system, a uni-body construction, and an open flow design. What these features do is work to provide extreme durability, efficient heating, and a virtually maintenance free solar pool heating experience. Most importantly, Heliocol has made a pool heater that will save you time and energy by eliminating unneeded maintenance and repair, while also providing a system that will last.
Heliocol’s individual tube design resists lift and stays put even in high winds. As a result, you will not need to install tie down straps to keep these panels in place. In addition, a strapless mounting system also allows for expansion and contraction and fewer roof penetrations. This design also protects your roof from rain rot because moisture is allowed to evaporate.
Heliocol specially designed its header in a couple unique ways that really help this system stand out. The header is fused to each individual tube during construction, giving it the strongest possible connection. An over-molded header eliminates cracks and welds for a longer lasting maintenance-free system. Lastly, each individual tube opens directly into the header, increasing flow and virtually eliminating back-pressure, saving wear and tear on pool pumps.
Heliocol’s patented panel clamp system and mounting sleds. These panel clamps eliminate the need for troubling rubber hoses and metal clamps that require regular rooftop maintenance and replacement. These durable, specially-engineered clamps never require replacement and never need to be tightened. The mounting sleds maintain alignment of each individual tube and prevent abrasion to both the panel and your roof during periods of expansion and contraction.
This truly is an amazing feat of engineering. Very few designs (in any market) are able to combine performance, efficiency, durability and ease of use into a single system. Heliocol nailed it.
Heliocol is one of the most popular systems sold today. Each component is made extremely well, has been designed to be virtually maintenance free (no need to hassle with rubber hoses or metal clamps), works to protect your roof from abrasion and rain rot, virtually eliminates back-pressure, and will stand the test of time. Heliocol panels are also protected by a 12 year limited warranty.
IDEAL FOR: Anyone looking for top of the line performance, long lasting durability and one of the most maintenance free systems available.

FAFCO delivers the highest rated heating performance in the solar industry, is the oldest and largest Solar Thermal manufacturer in the US and provides the best solar pool heating solutions in the world.
FAFCO panels are lightweight, ultraviolet resistant, and deliver unmatched protection against cracking and fading. Their panels contain advancements in water distribution, flow, and heat transfer that has earned them the Gold Medal for hottest performing panels. When in comes to heating performance, FAFCO products take the trophy.
FAFCO is one of the most recognized names in solar pool heating and has been setting the standard for high-performance since the beginning. They became the first brand to install 1.3 million solar panels and won the spot for hottest performing panels.
They did this by investing in product research and development, and continuing to push the envelope with new materials and new technology. Their panels are one of the most purchased brands on the market for a reason.
If you are looking for shear heating performance, these are the panels for you. They do require the addition of tie down straps to keep them steady in the wind. This is because FAFCO has targeted and prioritized heating performance over installation ease (a solid sheet panel contains a larger surface area available to the suns thermal energy, this larger area will get bounced around in the wind if not strapped down).
IDEAL FOR: Anyone looking for the best heating performance available. Looking for heat? FAFCO can’t be beat.
