Product of the Week: SolarTouch Solar System

Solar pool heating is a smart investment. Make the most of it with the smartest, most efficient solar controller you can buy: SolarTouch™ automation from Pentair Aquatic Systems®. Here’s more about our product of the week: The SolarTouch Solar System.

SolarTouch Solar SystemOnly the SolarTouch solar system gives you the precision and reliability of full digital control. Just set the digital thermostat and SolarTouch will monitor the temperature of the pool water and solar collectors. Whenever the sun offers sufficient energy for effective heating, the SolarTouch controller opens a motorized valve and sends filtered water to the collectors. When temperatures drop, the system shuts the valve to keep cold water out of your pool. SolarTouch technology brings you these advantages:

  • Digital temperature control assures the most precise, efficient heating possible. Temperature control can be set in one degree increments.
  • Solar valve lets collectors drain when not in use, preventing stagnant water or unsafe heating conditions. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) seal and rugged motorized actuator deliver years of maintenance-free operation.
  • LED indicator lights confirm that SolarTouch automation is working. Service indicator LED indicates when attention is needed.

Additional features of the SolarTouch Solar System include:

  • Pool cleaner pump protection, which prevents damage to the pool cleaner pump that can result from air in the solar collectors at start-up.
  • Control of a solar booster pump (not included) for systems that require extra flow. Activated only when solar energy is available.

A one-two punch of savings:

With SolarTouch automation and an IntelliFlo or IntelliPro Variable Speed Pool Pump, you will enjoy both the efficiency of solar heating and the savings of an energy-smart pump. In fact, your new pool pump will save you more energy than what’s used by your refrigerator, washer, and dishwasher combined! How much can you save?
