Conserving energy, reducing pollution and "going green" are in everyone's best interest. Goldline Controls' Solar Combos are as environmentally responsible as they are high-performance and user-friendly.
The Solar Combos are bundled systems consisting of a controller, an actuator, a diverter valve and two temperature sensors. They maximize solar heat collection by monitoring the temperature of both the solar collectors and the pool water. When the pool needs heating â€“ and the solar collectors are in energy-receiving mode â€“ the controller automatically diverts the water flowing between the pool's filter and gas heater and routes it through the solar collectors. There, the water is heated to a pre-set temperature, or until no more solar energy is available, at which time the gas or electric heater kicks in, using only as much fuel as necessary to make up the difference.
A Solar Combo can cool the pool, too. If the temperature in the collectors is at least 8 degrees cooler than the pool water, and the pool is above its desired temperature level, you can program the system to automatically open the diverter valve to take advantage of the solar collector's heat dissipation capability. This continues until either the collector temperature rises to within 3 degrees of the pool temperature or the desired pool temperature is reached.
Aqua Solar TC - provides all the capabilities of the Aqua Solar plus an integral time clock for 24-hour control of the pool's main pump and filtration system. The time clock is programmable in 15-minute increments and can have multiple on/off times. There's also an exclusive solar override feature that maximizes solar gain while minimizing electricity usage.
