Solar water options - how to make the right choice?

- The size and type of your system

- Pumps and cylinders
Making the most out of your solar hot water
A solar hot water system normally produces more hot water in summer
In the months where there may not be as much sun, this is where the supplementary booster system will ensure you have enough hot water for your needs.
To make the most of your system you should use:
- Water-efficient taps, showerheads, and appliances
- Hot water efficiently, especially in winter
- A timer or programmable control to make sure your booster system isn't heating water you won't need.
Action Alltrades can help you get the most out of your solar hot water.
The Hot Water System
A solar water heating system typically requires little maintenance but, for maximum performance and energy savings, some regular maintenance is needed.
Hot water cylinders should be maintained in a similar manner to normal electric hot water cylinders.
Hot and cold relief valves should be flushed every six months and the anode in a glass-lined water container should be changed every five years.
