Solar Heating, Gas Heating and Heat Pumps
Albatross understands and appreciates a swimming pool is both an investment in your property as well as your family lifestyle. To ensure maximum benefit and value year round, Albatross recommends every swimming pool have some form of pool heating. Like the design of your swimming pool, Albatross can tailor a specific heating solution to suit your family and lifestyle needs. Choose from solar pool heating, gas pool heating or heat pumps – the choice is yours.
Solar Pool Heating
Solar pool heating has been around for centuries and is the cheapest and most economical form of pool heating available. Simply set your desired pool temperature on your electronic controller and your solar pump will draw cold water from the pool, pass through heated solar absorbers strategically positioned on your roof and warm water is returned back to your pool.

Gas Pool Heating
Gas heating, also referred to as demand pool heating, allows you to swim in your swimming pool year round even in the depths of winter – entertain and stay fit and healthy year round.
A gas heater is incorporated into your swimming pool’s filtration system and can maintain your pool at a set and constant temperature via an electronic touchpad. Simply set your desired pool temperature and your pool filtration system will pass cold water through the gas heater burners and return warm water back to your swimming pool.

Pool Heat Pumps
A pool heat pump operates similarly to a reverse refrigerator by transferring heat in the atmosphere to the pool water drawn through a heat exchange located inside the heat pump returning warm water back to the pool. A correctly sized unit can work in the coldest of conditions, offering a year round heating solution.

Pool Solar Cover
A pool solar cover is designed to reduce water evaporation by up to 99.84% and depending on the type of solar cover chosen can heat the swimming pool water by as much as 8 degrees. A solar cover features thousands of tiny bubbles, which work together to collect and retain heat in the swimming pool. A pool solar cover works best when combined with another pool heating method such as a solar, gas or heat pump pool heating system. For ease of use, solar cover reels are also available on request. A $200 rebate is available as part of the Victorian Government’s Living Victoria Water Rebate Program effective 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2015 on Smart Approved WaterMark solar covers and solar reels.
