Over the past few years the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Alice Springs has demonstrated a willingness to save on hotel running costs and at the same time reduce its carbon footprint. As a part of this strategy, Hotel Management engaged the services of The Centre for Appropriate Energy, a private firm that carries out energy audits for Commercial Pool Owners and Government bodies with the aim of reducing energy consumption and costs for the heating of swimming pools. They determined that Solar Heating would help the Hotel with its costs and its carbon footprint.
Heliocol Sydney was contacted by an International Energy Conservation Company in November 2004 to provide them with a heating analysis to present to Blue Mountains City Council.
Salisbury Council in Adelaide South Australia is an original Federal Government “Solar City”. When the existing gas boiler (used to heat a 50 metre pool and a 25 meter undercover learner’s pool) reached the end of its life, the Council decided to investigate solar pool heating as a means of lowering their costs.

Wyndham Vacational Resort Kirra Beach contacted Heliocol’s Gold Coast representative, Glen Charlton in July 2012 to see if solar pool heating could be adapted to their current gas pool heating system. Their main focus was to reduce their gas bill and their carbon foot print.
Heliocol’s Brisbane Representative, Glen Charlton was contacted by Surfside Pools Commercial in February 2012. They were designing a 180,000L swimming pool for Devine Constructions for the Hamilton Harbour Development in Brisbane. They had a major issue for the heating of the pool. There was no gas available and not enough power available for electric heaters so they asked Glen to solve this problem for them.
The Pinnaroo Public Pool is located approx 200 kms from Adelaide, South Australia. The pool is used by local community and the local tourist park.

Two weeks later the quote was accepted by the Council and the installation was completed in December 2013.
The pool is used by the residents of the Minda Home and also by the EFM Health Club. Heliocol South Australia was specified one of Australia’s leading engineering consultancies, FMG Engineering, to replace the deteriorating rubber strip solar collectors with Heliocol solar panels and also update the existing solar pumps and controller in the plant room.
The Parndana Community Pool is located at the Parndana Area School on Kangaroo Island South Australia. Access to Kangaroo Island is by car ferry from the South Australian mainland.

In 2011, the Elliot Gardens Retirement Village requested Heliocol South Australia to assist in ways to reduce their community pool heating costs. The Village was using an electric heat pump to heat their pool. Due to the rising costs of their electricity bill, they needed a way to cut costs.
Heliocol South Australia designed a solar pool heating system that could be used in conjunction with the existing heat pump and in turn save 30-40% on the current electricity costs.
