Solar hot water heater repair.
We recently completed a solar HWS repair at North Sydney when the customer’s hot water storage tank started leaking.
At this customer’s North Sydney property, the solar hot water system ground storage tank had started leaking. Once onsite, our solar hot water specialist, John, could see that the hot water storage tank cylinder had split. Unfortunately, when this happens there is no alternative but to replace the tank with a new one.
How do split solar hot water systems work?
With a split solar hot water system, the solar panels are mounted on the roof but the hot water storage tank is located at ground level. If you have limited roof space, this is a great solution.
Solar water heaters work by absorbing energy from the sun’s rays in roof mounted solar collectors and transferring it to the water stored in the ground mounted storage tank. Ground mounted systems employ inbuilt pumps to push the fluid through the system. The split design of the system reduces the roof’s structural load, as only the low profile solar collectors are installed on the roof.
The solar hot water system that best suits your needs can depend upon where you live in Australia, which way your home faces and even the pitch of your roof.
So, it’s important to talk to one of our solar hot water specialists to determine what type of hot water heater is ideal for you.

Your hot water heater is an expensive appliance. Don’t risk voiding your warranty.
Additionally, most manufacturers won’t cover the terms of your hot water system warranty if it isn’t installed by a licensed hot water technician or qualified plumber. Hot water tanks are an expensive appliance so why would you risk voiding your warranty by installing it yourself or employing the services of someone who isn’t licensed?
