Is your pool ready for Suntrek?

To help our customers, we’ve prepared the following site-evaluation information:
Consider all the possible locations for mounting heater units.


You can use any sloped roof, flat roof or patio cover that does not face to the north. (The most effective facing is southwest, but the unique, large ribbing of the Suntrek collectors still allows plenty of heat generation when facing other directions.


You can put units on more than one roof area to gain the desired total size. (For example, on one roof that faces toward your backyard and one that faces to the side of the house. Just branch and plumb.)


A new structure can be built specifically to accommodate the solar heater as long as it is raised and near the pool (The new, shaded area can be an attractive landscape asset.)


The solar collectors must be positioned higher than the pool equipment, so that it can gravity-drain when it is not in use. (For example, a shed roof on a downslope below the pool equipment would be a poor location.)

Thought I’d send you a few photos of the completed system. No outside contractors were used in any part of the installation. The system was installed using family members only, mainly myself. Today is April 17th, 2006 and the pool water is already up to 88 degrees, never has the pool water been this warm this early in the year. My wife asked me why we didn’t do this years ago. Thanks for all your help and offering such a fine product.

Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that the system is up and running and everybody loves it! I want to thank you for having a system thats easy to install and putting all the information on how to, on your website. My 14 year old grandson and I did the installation in about 10 hours. I would recommend the Suntrek system to anyone!

Exactly one year ago I contacted your company to inquire about purchasing a solar heating system for our pool. Being first time pool owners, I researched several options. Your company’s CEO personally answered my questions and I proceeded with ordering a solar hearing system from Suntrek.

Installation was fast and easy. The system worked beautifully last swimming season. I put off writing as I wanted to see how the system would weather a harsh, northeastern Pennsylvania winter. I am happy to report that we opened our pool on Thursday May 24th and on Saturday evening, May 26th we were enjoying a warm pool on a cool Spring evening. The water tempeture reached 88 degrees in just two days and we have been swimming everyday since. Our neighbors have opened their pools but are not enjoying them yet as the water temperatures are to cold. One neighbor used their pool Memorial Day but had their propane heater operating. The highest temperature they were able to obtain so early in the season was 81 degrees. Needless to day the children, in spite of the sunshine were not swimming very long. Also our pool was the last to close last season. We enjoyed swimming until mid-October!!!!!

Most of all, thank you for making a reliable product.
