 10 Tube Solar Water Heater

These solar collectors are great for efficiently heating water in a spa bath or swimming pool (NOT recommended for use in salt pools). They are very similar to my low pressure solar water heaters (see my other auctions), but without the water storage tank. Cold water is circulated from your reservoir (e.g. a spa), through the top manifold, then back into your reservoir.
It is a low pressure device (can not be connected directly to the mains water supply, and isn't compatible with mains pressure hot water services), and so you only need a small, low powered circulation pump (not supplied). Plumbing connections into the manifold are standard 1" connections, available at any hardware store.

The achieved water temperature at the outlet of the manifold will depend on circulation speed. With no circulation, water will reach 100 degrees C and boil.

To give you an idea of the heating potential, it is approximately equivalent to a 600W element (~0.7m^2 collector surface area, assuming 85% efficiency and 1000W/m^2 solar energy). This could increase the temperature of 500L of water by 7 degrees C after a full day of sun. This may not sound like much, but after a few days of sun your water temperature increase will be significant.

The collector tubes are 1.5m long, 47mm diameter. The vacuum tubes do NOT contain copper heat pipes (water is contained within the vacuum tubes).

The Aluminium frame is included. The solar collector as is will mount on a flat surface, but can be mounted on an already angled roof by simply omitting the rear part of the frame.

Please send me a quick email with your post code and I can provide an accurate delivery charge. For local sales, pickup is welcome, or I can deliver (Adelaide region) for $20.

Other sizes are also available

20 tube collector: $449
30 tube collector: $549

30 tube collector (1.8m vacuum tubes, local collection only): $649
