In 2004, MHRPT moved to it's current, beautiful location. Here, we have a full gym area with equipment, free weights, treadmills, etc: a fitness studio in which to offer classes, a pool, private rooms for physical therapy, and a beautiful front office. The one thing we could do to make it better? Install solar panels! So thats what we did!
Our pool is kept at a balmy 92F and each locker room has it's own hot-water showers, all heated by six AP30, Apricus evacuated tube solar hot water collectors. The water is warmed in the tubes and pumped to a dual-coil storage tank. From there it flows to the pool and the on-demand hot water. Each year, we use at least 5 deliveries of 600 gallons of propane oil less. This reduction in fuel consumption will save over 8,500 pounds of CO2 each year. All without a reduction in temperature or speed of water transportation! Come in and try our solar-warmed pool for yourself, and let us know what you think!
