The Energy Efficient Choice

Over the last few years the use of solar panels to heat swimming pools has become ever more popular. This has seen an influx of many inferior panels offering unrealistic warranties and no back-up service.

At Lex Pools we offer top quality solar panels to heat swimmming pools, combined with correct and professional installation.

Proven Technology

We have heated thousands of pools of all shapes and sizes, using the proven Sun Command solar panel. The Sun Command panel is manufactured from UV stabilised polypropylene. All seams are thermo welded and pressure tested ensuring a leak free long lasting panel.

How it works

The Sun Command solar panel system is an efficient collector of the free energy available from the sun. The panels are mounted onto the roof of your home, or other suitable structure, and clean filtered water is passed through the panels during the day time, by means of your existing pool pump.

The water rushing through the panels collects the irradiated heat from the sun and is returned to your pool as warmed water. This process is continually repeated throughout the day.

You can control the temperature of your pool by switching the bypass value on and off to achieve your perfect temperature.

Our systems include a non-return valve to protect your pump and filter from back pressure when the system switches off. They also have a vacuum release valve to ensure all pipes and panels are drained when switched off. This ensures that there is no risk of freezing during the winter, giving you a hassle free solar system.

Panel Efficiency

A solar panel is most effective on a north facing roof at a 30 degree pitch. Other angles and directions can be effective, however this needs to be taken into account when grading the system.


Systems can be graded to suit almost any temperature requirement. Please consult our offices for correct grading. However, most units are graded for an 8-9 month swimming season.
