Save up to 100% on your pool motor running costs with our Solar Pool Saver

That sparkling blue pool comes at a price. It's not unusual for home owners to pay R500 per month or more in order to run their filter long enough to maintain that sparkling water.

Get rid of your monthly running costs by installing our Solar Pool Saver solution. Our system produces electricity directly from the sun and feeds it straight into your existing pool pump, hence relegating your municipal electricity supply to the role of backup provider only.


  • Virtually Maintenance free - once installed, no additional input is required
  • Ultra long lifespan - the solar panels have a 25 year production warranty!
  • No wasted production - If your pool pump is off, the Solar Pool Saver will divert the solar electricity to other household circuits
  • System can be expanded over time to include other household circuits
  • Inverter is IP65 rated and can be installed outdoors



The diagram below shows how the Solar Pool Saver system works. The system captures sunlight through the use of solar panels which convert that sunlight into DC electricial current. Our inverter controller is designed to maximise the power produced from the panels and convert it into AC power that the pool pump can use. We feed this power to the pool breaker or circuit board, which in turn runs your pool pump!

How Solar Pool Saver works


So what do you need to successfully install the Solar Pool Saver?

All you need is about 8 square metres of North facing roof space (or possibly open ground area) where the panels will be mounted, and a suitable place to install the inverter.

The system is available as a DIY kit or we can install it for you. If you're going the DIY route, you will need to have a qualified electrician connect the system to the distribution board.The kit comes with an easy-to-understand instruction booklet & unlimited telephonic support.


Each Solar Pool Saver consists of:

  • 1 x 1kW Grid Tie inverter with built-in MPPT
  • 3 x 325Wp Canadian Solar Tier 1 Modules
  • 1 x Aluminium Roof Mounting Kit
  • 1 x Electrical Component Kit

    on 24/09/2018
    Hi, I want to know the following: What the cost will be for this system? Do you also have a kit that does not need the Battery system. Meaning it will run a pump for a 50 000l pool that also have normal sun panels for heating. What is the calculation value if you compare your system and the normal cost running a pump 9 HRS daily. You can mail me the details to I saw a small pool on a farm deep in Limpopo the past weekend running two 24v panels in series running a 48v pump. It obviously will only work when there is sun but hey we have lots of that in SA. Thank you Answer:
    Hi there. These kits don't use batteries, just sun power. We will forward you a quote based on your requirements. Regards Solar Shop Support

    How long can the pool pump run continiously in good sunny weather Answer:
    Hi there. This system delivers an average of just over 6 units of electricity per day (on average over a year & depending on where in the country you are). This is enough to offset 7 - 8 hours of pool pump use. Regards Solar Shop Support

    on 22/10/2018
    How long can this pump run continiously on a good sunny day ,with the backup storage of power? Answer:
    Hi Frikkie. This is a grid tie solar power system. You cannot store energy with this system. It merely provides power to your existing pool pump when it is sunny. Regards Solar Shop Support
