Stroke is one cause of the most deaths, in which one way of handling stroke can be done with hydrotherapy. Hydrotherapy is a therapy that is done in the therapeutic pool which is filled with warm water in temperature 31°-34° C. When in the warm water, body burden becomes lighter, so the stroke patients with impaired movement of the body can train the nerves and muscles in order to restore the function of these organs. However, the warm water that is used for the therapy is produced by the heater that requires much electrical energy. This research discussed how to use solar energy to produce hot water using Indirect Evacuated Tube Solar Water Heater systems and make the control system for controlling the mixing process between the hot and cold water by using the Fuzzy Logic Control of the Mamdani method. Therapeutic pool system will be modeled using Simulink. Modeling the mixing process is made on the basis of mass balance and energy balance equations. Then the system will be simulated with interrupted condition and gets set value changes in a particular time. The FLC is successfully reached and maintained steady to a set value. The results will be compared to the performance of the one with Proportional Integral Derivative controller.
