    CLEARANCE: Blemished panels available•occasionally•at discount price; pickup only at Sarasota Warehouse only. These panels are brand new with full factory warranty; the panels are assembled in four 1 foot strips which are connected together with a tack weld. This is to hold the individual strips in place during shipping and handling until they are placed on the roof. In some cases, the tack weld will separate during rolling, shipping or un-rolling of the panel. This is normal and does not in any way affect the integrity or performance of the panel. These panels had the seams separate during the rolling process for shipment, and now cannot be properly rolled for shipping - they are otherwise perfectly good for installation. Normally $256, discounted•$50 off.••

    VORTEX 4x12 Solar
    Pool Heating Panels

    The Energy SuperMarket's best selling swimming pool heater, the•superior quality design of VORTEX earns it 5 star plus rating in our Consumer Value guide!

    SINGLE 4x12 VORTEX Solar Panels may be ordered in any quantity required.

    A•Vortex Panel Kit is•necessary [one per panel] for the mounting of each individual panel to the roof or rack, and for connecting it to the adjacent panel.

    Note: When ordering - enter the number of panels required in the "quantity" box - after clicking the "Add to Cart" button above.


    Product Applications:

    Custom Configurations
    Single Panels are ideal for adding one or more different sized panels to a Standard, Deluxe, or Premium Kit for the purpose of creating a custom configuration to accommodate complex roof designs. [See specific notes and examples directly below*].

    Replacement or•Repair
    Single Panels are also perfect for replacing one or more panels on an existing system in need of repairs [VORTEX will connect to most other manufactures products • see product specifications].

    Boosting Operating Temperature
    When high temperatures are desired or required, increasing heat higher than standard operating temperatures of 80-85 degree range on a new or existing system can be achieved by simply adding panels•[See Specific Formula Sizing Guide for detailed instructions].

    Improving•Poor Performance
    Adding one or more panels to an existing installed system is an excellent way to increase the inadequate heating performance of an under-engineered solar pool heating system.

    *Custom Configurations Note: Combining different size panels requires the use of a Split Kit; purchase in the product listing section.

    *Custom Configurations Example: Combining six 4x10s on roof A with two 4x12s on roof B. In this example the customer would order a six panel 4x10 Standard, Deluxe, or Premium Solar Heater Kit, and separately order a quantity of two additional Single 4x8 Panels, which include accompanying Hardware Kit for each panel, plus one Split Kit.

    IMPORTANT Note: Special discounts are available on large quantity orders, and for licensed pool and building contractors; please contact a Customer Service Agent.
