If you missed it, in this blog series, we're breaking down 12 questions you should always ask pool companies before you decide who to use. Plus in the process we'll tell you a little more about us over here at orbro POOLS.

We get asked all the time what is the most efficient way to heat a pool. There are many ways to heat a pool depending on location, size and what is available, Gas, Electric, Oil, Solar, Ground source or Air source.


We recommend air source heat pumps. Our Inverter Heat Pumps are 10 times quieter than standard heat pumps offering higher COP (The coefficient of performance) of over 15 and they can even work down to -7 degrees C and heat water up to 40°C.


Now you can have both quiet running and as near to all year heating as possible. Even if you do not need all year heating, having the capability to run with an effective COP at low temperatures means our Heat Pump will allow you to heat an outdoor pool at the beginning and end of the season, normally the hardest times to keep the pool warm.

Our heat pumps can save energy by controlling the pool filtration pump, turning it on & Off intelligently, according to the heating requirement of the pool. With the pump running only when needed noise is reduced as well as running costs, whilst always maintaining the desired pool temperature.

Powered by Twin-Rotary Mitsubishi DC Inverter Compressors. Based on the "Twin Mechanism" principle, two rotors operate together to balance the torque to stop most of the shaking created by normal compressors. This results in the highest efficiency, very low vibration and ultimately extremely quiet operation.


Our Heat Pumps come with Digital controls for easy operation and accurate pool temperature setting, a Titanium Heat Exchanger to protect against Chlorine in the pool water, a "Soft Start" on all Models which reduces the power required when turning the units on and a 7 Year Compressor & Heat Exchanger warranty, which is unmatched elsewhere. Our Heat Pumps cover just about every domestic swimming pool from 20m3 up to 120m3 pools.
