Solartech Solar Water Heating systems are manufactured and supplied by our technology partners Kwikot. These Solar water heating systems carry the SABS Mark of approval to indicate its compliance to product specifications SANS 1307 and SANS 151, which includes mechanical and thermal testing. Kwiksol Solar Water Heaters are available in 150lt, 200lt and 250lt sizes for split or thermosyphon installations.
The Indirect system
Solartech’s Preferred Technology is the Kwiksol Indirect System. It is suitable for all regions even where the ambient temperature may fall below freezing. Using a synthetic heat transfer fluid has proven to be the most predictable method for ensuring system performance year round. Systems can be installed in two configurations
Split system (Tank in Roof)
Close coupled (Tank on Roof)
Indirect tanks are “Dual Tanks” which means they are fitted with a back up electric element, so in the event of inclement weather our systems also work as a conventional electric water heater.
Below is a general price list showing the initial investment, depending on specific technical conditions.
