Deluxe System Kit

VORTEX Deluxe System Kits are based on the contents of the
Standard Kit, which comes with required number of panels,
PLUS accompanying Panel and Row hardware kits needed for basic
panel assembly, connecting, and mounting.

VORTEX Panel Kits


Solar Pool Heater VORTEX Panels Deluxe System Kit comes with all the componets included with the Standard Kit, plus all the time and labor saving additional components that are provided with a Deluxe Kit Upgrade [see details below].

The Deluxe Kit Upgrade provides a generous supply of additional
components and fittings designed to enhance the systems ease of
installation, performance, and user-friendliness.

This kit delivers everything necessary for a hassle free do-it-yourself
installation by the average handy person, working at a relaxed pace
during one weekend.

VORTEX Plumbing Kits

Deluxe Kit Upgrade Highlights:
The Deluxe Upgrade contains one Plumbing Kit which includes -

  • 3-way manual control valve; for turning solar on and off, and for regulating flow - which controls pool temperature *
  • 2 check valves; for preventing backflow through the pool's filtering system, and the solar system return line 
  • Large assortment of PVC pipe fittings; for tying into the existing pool filtration system, and for plumbing the PVC piping to and from the solar panel system **
  • Various installation parts and accessories; for eliminating purchasing guesswork and time consuming shopping 

* The 3-way control valve is easily used to turn the solar heater
on or off, plus regulate the flow of water and adjust the temperature.
Manual adjustments only need to be made occasionally as the
seasons change.

** An average installation requires only the purchase of PVC piping,
which is cost prohibitive to ship, and can be purchased at any local
hardware supply.
