At the heart of the SolFlow system sits a smart technology hybrid controller that can switch seamlessly between solar energy or mains electricity, as required. When the sun is shining, 100% of the pump’s power needs are generated from solar panels on your roof. If it gets cloudy then the system automatically switches to mains electricity; a powersharing arrangement that keeps your pool sparkling clean – and at just the right temperature – all year round for a much lower cost!
In addition to significantly reducing your power bills, the system is designed to put you in control, because you decide how much mains power can be used to obtain optimal operating efficiency and water flow. If set correctly, and it’s slightly different for every pool, 90% or more of the required power will come from the solar panels, no matter whether you are only filtering OR filtering and heating your pool.
