Effective Electric Heating Solutions

An effective solution for heating a swimming pool, electric heaters are the method of choice for those looking for quick heat and minimal outlay.

Compact in design, the heaters can be installed in all types of swimming pool or spa and can be easily connected to the existing electrical power-mains to provide full power round the clock. In the same way that a kettle heats water, the water from the swimming pool’s circulation flows through the heater and is heated by the element.

Here we take a look at a selection of electric swimming pool heaters from some of the UK’s leading suppliers…

OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY

operationThe EVO is the best-selling product in the Elecro electric pool heater range and is ideal for residential and small commercial pools and spas. Built using Titanium heating elements to guarantee zero corrosion, the unique and proven coiled heating element design creates a turbulent vortex in the water flow. This action prevents the build-up of mineral deposits on the heating element, extending product life expectancy whilst continuing to provide outstanding operational efficiency.

HIGHLY EFFECTIVE

highlyThe Zenith range of swimming pool and spa heaters from Thermalec® expands the heating capacity to 168kW, ideal for larger pool and spa projects. Each Zenith heater maintains the unique design of Thermalec® heaters with its spiral flow of water through the heater, providing excellent heat transfer from the elements into the water and reducing scaling of the elements. With its baffle and weir system it reduces the amount of cold water coming from the pool striking the elements directly therefore reducing the thermal shock.
