Stainless Steel is by far, the superior material for hot water storage as it can withstand higher temperatures than other materials. Maintenance costs are reduced because there is no sacrificial anode that requires replacing. Water quality is also better because there is no anode dissolving into your water.
Colourbond Colours are available for the tough, exterior tank casing meaning it can be possible to harmonise the tank with the roof colour. Available tank colours for 300 litre models are Silver Grey, Woodland Grey, Headland and Night Sky. The 180 litre tanks are available in Silver Grey only.
High Performance Panels with patents pending comprise of an extruded aluminium edging and a copper collector plate coated with Tinox, titanium oxide. Tinox has a very low level of emissivity meaning the maximum amount of heat is conveyed into the collector tubes. All metal connections throughout the panel ensure the integrity of joints for many years under extreme conditions. Rheem have truly reinvented the flat plate collector with the new CSA model.
Passive Solar Design. This model of solar hot water system is the same as the original solar water heater developed in Australia more than 60 years ago. The design is so simple that water gets heated by the sun without the need for any pumps, controllers, sensors etc… Actually there are no moving parts!
The coldest water in the system naturally always falls to the lowest level in the collectors. Heat from the outside environment warms this water, which then naturally rises to the storage tank. This is the way the system works. It is that simple.
These systems come standard with electric boost but can easily have a gas booster attached if required. The frost proof model has an inbuilt heat exchanger and has a frost proof liquid in the collectors meaning it can withstand temperatures as low as minus 16 degrees.
10 Years Warranty gives you peace of mind.

The profiled anodised aluminium extrusion used as the four sides of the collector encasement frame, with its inherent structural properties, provides rigidity and strength resulting in a much stronger collector design.
The extrusions utilise a sawtooth profile where the high strength silicone adhesive is used to secure the glass, which provides a greater adhesion area and improves shear resistance. This profile also is used where the collector clamps grip the collector providing a stronger mechanical bond when the collector is secured.
Backing sheet locating and locking feature
The backing sheet is housed within the profile of the collector encasement frame. The stepped feature of the profile locates and locks the sheet in position providing equal resistance around the encasement perimeter and preventing
movement. The high strength silicon polymer adhesive is used as a final fixing method and also provides a moisture seal to the underside of the collector.
Ventilation to reduce and clear condensation Each injection moulded corner block includes an intricate pathway to allow the collector to breathe. This provides superior ventilation to allow condensation, which can form on the underside of the glass early on cold mornings, to clear much more quickly. The collector overhang or ‘veranda’ along with the snorkel device designed into the
corner block protects against water ingress in wet conditions.
Header grommet seal
The header grommet seal collar used where the absorber header penetrates the collector extrusion allows the absorber socket to float in the collar catering for the thermal expansion of the header. The tight fit around the header prevents
moisture ingress though this point.
Absorber support and locking mechanism The corner block and cap design incorporates an integrated absorber plate support. The design incorporates a close off to prevent sideways movement of the absorber outside of an acceptable tolerance for the collector.
