Zane Difference

Commitment to excellence

The Zane Difference – Only Zane has set international benchmarks with a versatile pool heating system tailored to suit all types of residential, commercial and Olympic swimming pools.

Here’s how it goes: Pool water is filtered in the usual way and, as it’s being circulated, the automatic solar controller constantly monitors temperature and compares it with the temperature of the solar absorbers. (Refer temperature-sensing probes.)

When the absorbers are 5° warmer than the pool water, the controller instructs the Zane system to switch on by activating a solar boost pump to divert water to the solar absorber array.

After collecting solar energy from the absorbers, water is returned to the pool in the standard manner.

If the roof cools down or water reaches the pre-set ‘top out’ temperature, the controller switches off the diverter or pump and remains in the stand-by mode, ready to cycle again when conditions are suitable.

There is no interruption to the pool’s normal filtration throughout this entire operation, which can be controlled either manually or via a pre-set time clock. The Zane difference is further exemplified by the outstanding results achieved during independent testing at prominent Universities and technical institutions, which continue to confirm the seamless performance of the Zane system against other brands.
