After his heat pump caught fire, Maxence looked for a new way to heat his pool ecologically and economically. In 2019, he had 8 DualSun hybrid solar panels installed on his house near Nantes, where he lives with his wife and 2 children.

After 5 years in operation, he tells us all about his energy-independent pool.

Heating a swimming pool consumes a lot of energy and costs a lot of money. So choosing solar panels that produce hot water and electricity at the same time is an ideal alternative solution!

All the more so as needs are greatest in spring and summer, when solar panels produce the most!

The hot water will be used to heat the pool, and the electricity to run the pump, making the pool as energy self-sufficient as possible.

Maxence chose the DualSun SPRING solution for reasons of :

  • safety
  • ecological
  • economic

From a financial point of view, he expects a return calculated at around 12 to 15 years.

The guide to solar heating for swimming pools


From project to installation, everything went smoothly: the project was configured using the MyDualSun tool, and then contact was made with the partner installer located near Maxence’s home. Experienced and qualified, the partner installer was able to answer Maxence’s questions and guide him through the process right up to the end of the project.

Maxence is satisfied with his solar installation: “It increases the pool temperature, even quite early in the season, and extends the swimming season. So we recommend DualSun’s hybrid solution for the pool, because it’s really needed on sunny days, when it’s warm and sunny, and that’s when it heats up the most, when electricity production is at its peak, so for us it’s a really relevant solution”.
