Solar Pool Heating in Tucson
If you have a home swimming pool, it’s probably safe to say that you spend a lot of time cleaning and maintaining it. Here’s the problem: After all the time, energy, and money you put into upkeep, you can only really enjoy your pool for part of the year. What if you could enjoy it even when the weather was chilly? Custom Solar and Leisure provides Tucson homeowners with high-quality solar pool heaters, so you can relax in your backyard pool any time of year.How a Solar Pool Heater Works
The way that solar pool heaters work couldn’t be simpler:
- The heater is powered by an automatic control valve, which uses a pump to push the water through a solar collector and then back into your pool.
- When the re-circulated water returns to your pool, it has been heated to your preferred temperature.
- The heater is designed to coordinate with your existing pool filtration system, which screens the water that goes through the heater to keep it clean.
You may have already guessed the major advantage of relying on solar power to heat your swimming pool—it’s virtually free! Using electricity to heat your pool can be expensive, but switching to a solar pool heater automatically removes that expense from your household budget. In other words, you can keep your pool at a comfortable temperature without putting a dent in your electric bill.
The up-front cost of putting a solar pool heater in your pool is comparable to that of a gas or heat pump pool heater. When your solar pool heater is sized to cover anywhere from about 70 to 100 percent of your pool’s total surface area, the heater will cost approximately $3,500 to $5,500 to install. Keep in mind, however, that installing a solar-powered heater qualifies Tucson homeowners for Arizona’s state tax credit, which will slice up to $1,000 off the price tag. As a bonus, pool heaters require minimal maintenance.Installing Your Solar Pool Heater

Solar Pool Spec Sheets
I have had a custom solar hot water system installed with this crew. Outstanding service & installation & followup. Never had a problem. Great guys to work with. I have recommended them to several other homeowners.
I would definitely recommend Custom Solar and Leisure for a PV or Solar Hot Water installation. Of all of all the contractors I have dealt with, CSL is the first and only contracting company I have been completely happy with. The price for my PV system plus Solar Hot Water Heater was excellent, the quality of work was very high, and the owner was always honest. CSL was willing to work with me to address my concerns about the size, appearance, and location of the two systems and I am very happy with the results.
These guys have perfected the art of customer service. From initial consult to install to follow up we received friendly and courteous service from every member. We couldn’t be happier with our experience and the install looks fantastic.
We had a very difficult installation and Jeff adapted to our needs and designed a system that perfectly matched our requirements. The installers were very professional and installed the system exactly as it had been designed. We were especially impressed by the inverters that were installed at each panel that provide on-line visibility of the performance of each panel. They system had been in use for over a year and has exceeded all of our expectations.
The guys at CSL were very knowledgeable about the latest products out there. They made the whole process simple and easy. From financing to my first electric bill they were there every step of the way. My first bill with the panels was a $7 service fee! These things are paying for themselves while helping the environment. Call these guys and have them install some panels for you!
