Pool Heating Specialists In & Around London

Swimming pool boilers are a niche within the heating and hot water sector, requiring a separate qualification to install, repair and maintain swimming pool boilers (HWB1) as opposed to traditional boilers. At CGBS we can assist with any swimming pool boiler enquiries as we have our own in-house swimming pool heating specialists that have years of experience implementing bespoke swimming pool boiler solutions, as well as being Gas Safe registered and fully qualified to work on domestic or commercial swimming pool heating systems.

In the UK swimming pool boilers are nearly always essential for your pool to be a pleasurable experience due to our unpredictable and normally cold weather. Solar covers may be applicable in consistently hotter countries like Spain, but even then, swimming pool boilers are still very common if the pool is used by children, elderly people or first thing in the morning. Our swimming pool boiler systems are user friendly, efficient, cost-effective and will even allow you to remotely control the temperature and schedule of your swimming pool water’s temperature. We only ever use industry leading brands such as Certikin, Pentair, Laars Jandy and Master Temp to name just a few.

Swimming Pool Boiler Installation

Whether you’re an architect drawing up plans or either a homeowner or business owner looking to add a pool to your repertoire of facilities, we can design and install the perfect system to suit your requirements.

We are regularly asked what size and type of boiler will be required. Upon contacting us a representative will take the measurements of your pool to calculate the appropriate boiler size. They will also book an appointment for an surveyor to attend your property and assess the requirements of your swimming pool in detail so no stone is left unturned, making sure you have the perfect heating solution for your property’s pool.

Even with all the renewable and clean technologies out there, the most popular choice for heating swimming pools is still gas boilers/heaters due to their higher levels of performance. The advantages of gas boilers are that they are capable of heating the water quickly and the ambient air temperature doesn’t affect the boiler operation. We offer other types of boilers also, but in most circumstances regarding swimming pool heating, gas boilers are the most effective solution to implement.

Swimming Pool Boiler Repair, Servicing & Maintenance

Just like normal heating gas boilers, it is highly recommended that you keep your swimming pool boiler maintained and serviced annually. As well as helping to ensure your pool is warm and ready for when you or your guests need to make a splash, the annual service is required to keep your manufacturer’s guarantee valid.

If the property is for commercial use, a holiday let or has full-time tenants, the boilers will also require a domestic or non-domestic gas safety inspection so it is ensured that the system and connected pipework are safe to use.

On top of this, we will even contact you each year regarding your boiler service to make sure it is running efficiently.  This will also improve the chances of identifying any possible future issues so they can be resolved with minimal downtime to your leisure facilities. Once we have carried out your boiler maintenance and repairs service, let us know if you would like to be added to our reminder system.

We offer a range of maintenance packages to suit any establishment and cover all types of HVAC equipment, so whether your use is commercial or domestic, give us a call today so we can help make sure the fun never ends at your pool party!

Swimming Pool Boiler FAQs

Your questions about swimming pool boilers answered

In England it is essential to have your swimming pool heated, especially if it is outside. In general swimming pools are normally at a temperature between 24°c and 30°c, using this as a guideline you can see why pools in the UK need to be heated. Solar covers are an applicable alternative in hotter countries but in the UK solar covers aren’t a reliable source of providing your pool with heat, as unfortunately sunny days are far and few between in Britain. Without having your pool heated, using the pool will be a very cold experience to say the least and if the pool is used by children or the elderly you may risk causing them hypothermia.

To calculate the right size boiler needed for your swimming pool you will first need to calculate the surface area (e.g. width x length). Once you have got the surface area you will need to divide the number by 3, this will give you the minimum BTU requirement your boiler will need to be. You will then need to account for other factors such as windy weather and heat loss, for example a pool requiring a 150,000 BTU based off the first calculation will most likely need a 250,000 BTU boiler. You will then need to convert this into kW, as this is what boiler outputs are measured in. This is done by multiplying the BTU by 0.00029307108333333, the result will give you the kW output needed for the boiler. If you are still uncertain on which boiler you will need to heat your swimming pool and want the installation carried out also, call 0207 9989 005 and we can book an engineer appointment to ensure you have the correct equipment installed to a high level of workmanship.

Although not done conventionally, standard domestic boilers can be used to heat a swimming pool but will require a heat exchanger to be installed alongside the boiler to make this possible. We do recommend having a purpose made swimming pool boiler installed to heat your swimming pool to make matters easier but if the previous method mentioned is desired, it is in fact possible. To book an installation for either methods please get in touch via our contact page.

Heat pumps can be used to heat a swimming pool but aren’t the preferred method in the UK due to the temperatures experienced in this country. When the temperature drops below 7°c heat pumps start to lose efficiency the colder it gets. As autumn, winter and spring months in the UK often have temperatures below 7°c, heat pumps are not a great method of heating boilers unless the pool is solely used in summer.
