Rheem rooftop solar hot water system repair Hills District.
In the recent Sydney storms, the roof on this Castle Hill customer’s home encountered such extensive hail damage that it had to be replaced with a new one. Their old rooftop solar hot water system was also trashed beyond repair.
Once the new roof was in place, we were contacted to install a new solar hot water heater. The original system was a very old 440L tank which adequately catered to their household hot water usage requirements. Tanks of this size are no longer manufactured so we contacted the customer’s insurer direct and were able to negotiate the supply and installation of 2 x 300L stainless steel Rheem solar systems – all paid for by the insurer. Rheem’s Colorbond range meant we were able to match the colour to the customer’s brand new roof.
Needless to say the customer was very happy with the result and we think the photos below highlight how stylish the Rheem stainless steel solar Colorbond range looks.
Do your bit for the planet and save energy at the same time! Go solar with Rheem solar hot water system in a range of Colorbond colours to suit the architecture and colour palette of your home. The outer casing of every Rheem storage tank is constructed from weatherproof COLORBOND® steel. Rheem offer a choice of four contemporary COLORBOND® steel colours with their modern design roof mounted range.
The storage cylinders for all Rheem roof-mounted hot water systems are made of quality stainless steel which acts as a natural barrier to corrosion. Most conventional water heaters are made of steel which requires a sacrificial anode for protection whereas the anti-corrosive properties of stainless steel mean that an anode is not necessary – therefore they require less maintenance.
Stainless steel is prominent in most kitchens for its purity, aesthetics, ease of maintenance and corrosion resistance. It is reassuring to know that inside every Rheem roof-mounted storage cylinder your hot water is kept in a hygienic environment ready for your family’s everyday hot water needs.
- Suitable for 2-5 people
- Capacity 305 litres
- 10 Years Warranty*
- If your home is in a temperate or tropical location which is not subject to frost and you have good quality drinking water, then the Rheem 52L Series system is ideal.
- The 52L Series system directly heats the water as it passes through the collectors and then automatically circulates it back into the storage tank.
- This process continues whilst the sun is shining giving you and your family ample hot water.
- Available in in 4 COLORBOND® colours (see below), and either gas or electric boost – for days when the sun doesn’t shine.
