I put in a pool in my hose (in Toronto) about 6 years ago. This year I had solar heating panels installed on my roof - these are the evacuated tube type.
The installation has just been recently completed but one thing that I am not sure about is that there is a fair amount of air not introduced into the filter system. You see lots of bubbles pulsing through the water return - not constantly but every couple of seconds or so a burst of bubbles comes through.
The solar panel installer said that this was usual - but I am not too happy about this. I believe that the solar panels have some pressure vents or something where the air is getting in.
I can reduce the bubble by adjusting a valve and reducing the amount of water flow that goes to the solar panels. But will this cause other problems?
The piping to my solar panels was installed just before the heater. There is a valve that when closed diverts all water flow to the panels but when open the water will primarily take the path of least resistance and bypass the solar panels.
Anyone have any advice?
