After the swimming pool heat exchanger has been correctly installed, emphasis should be given to the general maintenance of all the pool equipment, the most important factor which will have a direct bearing on this will be the pool water condition. The proper purification of the pool water will allow for a healthier pool, the water will not cause discomfort to bathers, it will not cause a break-down of pool equipment and will not cause any unpleasant smells which are often experienced with wrong chlorine dosage. The ideal pool pH should be kept to within 7.4 to 7.6. On no account should it fall below 7.2 or above 7.8. If this is not achieved corrosion/erosion of the pool equipment will occur.

 

Listed below are some guides on operating conditions for the swimming pool heat exchanger:

  • Always keep pH to within correct levels. Check on a day-to-day basis. Alter pool condition as necessary.
  • Ensure the free chlorine levels are within the range recommended by the chemical manufacturer and are in accordance with the type of pool, for example, private, hotel, school or municipal.
  • If a by-pass is fitted to the heat exchanger circuit, it is essential that any valves are correctly positioned and allow the recommended pool water flow to pass through the heat exchanger. Incorrect flows may cause corrosion/erosion.
  • The filter unit should be checked regularly. This is very important especially with sand filters. This sort, if working incorrectly, can allow sand to pass around the pool circuit causing erosion of pipe work, heat exchanger and pump unit.
  • Keep swimming pool free from debris such as leaves, grass cuttings etc. Foreign matter can decay and increase pH.
  • It's essential that the correct amount of chlorine dosage is added to the pool. To allow proper dispersion of the dose in the pool water, distribute the chemicals to various areas of the pool. Do not dose in one area only, as this will create high acidic areas which can cause corrosion/erosion of the pool equipment.

 

Pool water which is in an unbalanced condition will prove costly for the owner with the replacement of pool components. It is essential that the manufacturers instructions are followed correctly as this will give safe bathing and prolong the life of all pool equipment.

These heat exchangers provide a simple method of heating swimming pool water indirectly from a central heating boiler. They should be installed downstream of the pumping and filtration equipment. The boiler water must be pump assisted and the usual precautions taken to prevent air locks. This pump should be controlled by a thermostat in the pool water pipe before the heat exchanger and set at the required pool temperature.

A range of heat exchangers has also been developed for use when heating swimming pools with solar panels. These heat exchangers are longer than those used with boiler heating to allow more heat transfer to take place because the output water from solar panels is cooler than that from boilers.

NEW Elecro Pool Smart

Elecro Intelligent Pool swimming pool heater control system

Intelligent Pool Control System

Save Up To 27% On Fuel Bills
The Pool-Smart from Elecro is the intelligent pool control system that allows you to control and maintain your pool to the perfect temperature as economically as possible.

The Complete Control Solution For:

  • Electric Heaters
  • Heat Exchangers
  • Heat Pumps
  • Circulation Pumps

 

Features:

  • Priority Heating
  • Accurate Temperature Control to 0.5ºC
  • Diagnostic Display
  • Fully Programmable With Timed Control
  • 2 User Defined Temperature Set Points - to utilise off-peak electricity rates
  • The Pool-Smart is supplied fully equipped with flow switch, temperature sensor probe fitted in custom pipe work T-Piece, for simple integration into any pool technical facility.

 

Q - What is priority Heating?

A - Priority heating is when the Pool Smart digital controller can determine that the swimming pool's temperature has dropped below the minimum swimming temperature and then switches the pool's circulation pump on (via the pump control cable) so that the heating product can switch on and heat the pool back to the minimum swimming temperature. Once the minimum swimming temperature has been reached the heater will also switch off the pool's circulation pump.

Q - Why does the Pool Smart heater have 2 temperature set points?

A - The Pool Smart digital controller has been designed to be the most economical heating controller available, by allowing the use of 2 set points you are able to select a higher set point for when fuel is cheaper (i.e. off peak) and then a lower set point for when fuel is more expensive (i.e. peak rate). It is recommended that the lower set point is programmed to be your absolute minimum swimming temperature, if the pool then drops below this temperature during the day the heater can switch on the circulation pump (as described above) and top up the heat to keep the pool at the minimum swimming temperature.

 

Bowman Swimming Pool Heat Exchangers

Bowman Swimming Pool Heat Exchangers various options

 

Bowman Swimming Pool Heat Exchangers are manufactured with corrosion resistant cupro-nickel tubes and corrosion resistant end covers which are suitable for use with chlorine water, seawater, therapeutic and spa pools. Our units are very easy to maintain, both the end covers and tube stack can be easily removed for cleaning purposes, this is unique to our design.

Bowman Swimming Pool Heat Exchangers can be utilised where the pool water is heated by a boiler, heat pump or solar panels and are generally suitable for pools up 1140m3 / 250,000 gallons for boiler installations and 228m3 / 50,000 gallons for solar installations.

Bowman Swimming Pool Heat Exchangers are also available with a thermostat pocket which enables a thermostat probe to be fitted directly into the end cover. This eliminates the need for the thermostat to be fitted into the pipe work (The new 5113 and 5114 series heat exchangers incorporate an integrated thermostat pocket as standard) the heat exchanger can be installed horizontally or vertically.
