    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

    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.

    Note: 2" system plumbing is standard; 1½" kits by request.
