Heating

When you've invested in a swimming pool, you should be able to enjoy it beyond summer, or even all year long.

The ideal swimming pool temperature is 25 to 26°C but without additional heating, it usually stays between 18 and 20°C. Even when your swimming pool absorbs heat during the day, the temperature drops at night, making it difficult to keep your pool warm naturally.

At Astral Pool, we offer a range of affordable heating options to help you get more use out of your swimming pool.

Gas heating

A gas heater is a cost-effective way to heat your swimming pool to a comfortable swimming temperature all year round. It can provide on-demand heating, which means your pool will be at the perfect temperature when you want it, regardless of the weather conditions.

When you're choosing a gas heater for your pool, you should consider these factors:

  • Swimming pool size
  • Maximum temperature
  • Heating time
  • Your swimming season

Heat pumps

A heat pump is a very energy-efficient heating option for your pool and a great alternative for areas that don't have a natural gas connection. It uses the same technology as reverse-cycle air conditioners, extracting heat from the air and transferring it to water through a series of processes.

When choosing a heat pump, you should consider the following factors:

  • Geographic location and climate*
  • Maximum temperature
  • Swimming pool size
  • Indoor/outdoor location
  • Your swimming season

*Heat pumps are ideal for warmer, tropical climates.

Solar heating

A solar heating system of the right size can keep your pool at a comfortable swimming temperature and extend your swimming season.

Solar pool heaters use energy and heat from the sun, so they're best suited to sunny areas. They're one of the most economical and environmentally-friendly heating options and, when combined with a gas booster, provide the most efficient temperature control, regardless of the sun.

Here's what you should consider when choosing a solar heating system:

  • Swimming pool size
  • Roof orientation and shade
  • Pool and roof colour
  • Amount of shade and wind
  • Your desired swimming season
