The majority of solar pool heaters are designed with "individual" round flow tubes so that if a tube leaks it can easily be plugged. Some manufacturers even state in their warranty that a damaged system will be repaired if possible. In most cases a "repair" is nothing more than a plug. The problem with this is that a plugged panel is much less efficient or effective at heating your pool.
Another problem with the design of most solar pool heating systems is that the shape and thickness of the flow tube walls do not allow for prolonged expansion or contraction that occurs during seasonal temperature changes or extreme weather such as freezing.
This patented flat panel design is proven to be more efficient and more durable than other solar pool heaters. Here"s why:
Absorb more heat
Eagle Sun Pool collectors are visibly thicker than any other pool heating collector because we use up to 35% more raw materials in our panels. This attracts more heat.
Reduce heat loss
Eagle Sun flow tubes are connected so that they stay warm longer. Other panels can cool rapidly during windy conditions because the "individual" flow tubes aren"t insulated by each other.
The extra material in our panels allows for greater expansion and contraction, provides extra UV protection and prevents weak spots.
Prevent freeze damage (covered under warranty)
Because water expands by approximately 9% when turning to ice, the strain put on a solar panel"s flow channel can be devastating. Our pool heaters, however, are designed to withstand internal freezing better than any other panel on the market today. The 2 keys to our durability are the thickness of our panels and the shape of the flow channels.
