Supply and installation of various solar water heating systems to suit your needs. All products are SABS approved and have comprehensive warranties from the supplier.

Retrofit to existing geyser

We will be able to install a solar conversion kit to your existing geyser, thus making it a lot more affordable:
With this system, we would install a frame with16 vacuum tubes connected to a manifold on your roof (North facing), and a new heating element into your geyser with a heating coil running through your geyser from the solar vacuum tubes. A solar circulating pump is connected to the system that is powered by a 12V photovoltaic solar collector panel; this runs the water from the tubes through the coil in the geyser, which in turn heats the water in the geyser. At night, the pump does not run and so no cold water is circulated back to the geyser. This conversion kit includes a new electric element and thermostat, which ensures that you have hot water on the cloudiest of days.

New Solar geyser and panels

We install a fully complete system including solar collector panels/ vacuum tubes and a new solar water heater (geyser). There are 3 size options of heaters, 150L, 200L, and 250Litre, all having a 2kW backup electrical element. They can be installed as a close coupled system, where you have the panels and water heater interconnected on the roof, or a split system with only the panels on the roof. With this split system, a circulating pump will be required if it is not possible to mount the water heater higher than the panels inside the roof.
