This system consists of roof mounted solar panels and a water storage tank, which is either located on the roof with the panels (close-coupled), or at ground level (split system).

These solar panels absorb the sun’s rays and convert them into energy, which is then transferred to the tank, heating the stored water inside ready for when you require it.

You can still get hot water when there is little sunlight or heavy storms with gas or electric solar boosters that com equipped on some systems.

A solar powered booster (Gas or Electric) acts as an alternative power source.

Boosters automatically operate during periods of low sun to ensure you have a constant stream of hot water available 24/7.
