- The Auto Controller will divert the water to the solar panels when there is sufficient solar energy to capture and turn it off when there are no more solar gains available or needed.
- Partially sunny or rainy days are not a problem.
- Rushing home in the evening to shut off the valve to the panels before it cools the pool too much is no longer a worry.
- Whether to turn the system on or off over a weekend is all decided by the Auto Controller.
- An additional benefit is that the solar panels are still able to draw heat from the roof 3 or 4 hours after the sun has left the panels. This is something it would not have been figured out without the roof sensor.
- You will be always confident that the Auto Controller is doing the best possible job to maximize the solar energy available to heat your swimming pool.
- 3-year vendor warranty
