How does Solar Heating/Cooling work?

All AquaSolar controllers automatically divert the water flowing between your pool's filter and heater and route it through solar thermal collectors. There, the water is heated to a set temperature and circulated back into the pool or spa. Pool owners can even maintain their pool and spa at different temperatures.
