Solar pool heating dramatically extends your swimming season, enabling healthy enjoyment and exercise in luxurious warm water from spring to fall. At Paul W. Lawrence Pool & Patio, we recommend and use solar heating by FAFCO.


Benefits of installing Fafco Solar Heating:

  • Reduce Your Energy Bills - Using a Revolution Hot Water Heater will save the average homeowner significant electric water heating costs.
  • Environmentally Friendly - Make a difference by helping to reduce greenhouse emissions by reducing your dependency on your electric or gas water heater.
  • Add Value To Your Home
  • Extends The Expected Life Of Your Residential Hot Water Tank - Dramatically reduces scaling.
  • Qualifies For The 30% Federal Tax Credit
  • Over 5 Times More Efficient at Capturing Sun's Energy - Solar thermal collectors are the most efficient way to use solar energy.
  • Cleanest, Safest And Quietest Source Of Energy
  • Lowest Operational Costs - Energy is free from the sun.
  • Lowest Maintenance Costs - Minimal costs. 
  • Longer Lifespan - Due to fewer moving parts and no corrosion


How it Works:

The solar hot water system is designed to operate automatically, taking advantage of solar energy when it is available.

  • System will turn on when solar energy can be added to the water heater.
  • Solar controller will activate the circulation module which will push water up to the solar collector(s) and begin circulation.
  • When solar energy becomes unavailable or when heated water is not required, the system will turn off.


**Revolution has been designed to work with both electric and natural gas water heaters.
