Below is a factual list of differences between Rheem and Solahart.
If a salesman makes a statement about their product without putting it in writing, that statement cannot be accepted as being true.

We do not employ salesmen or have a massive budget for TV advertising, therefore you are getting more value for money when you purchase from us. Salesmen need payment, whether it be in the form of a commission or otherwise, and some will say anything to get a sale.
Rheem have been manufacturing in Australia since 1936. To read about Rheem’s range of brands, which include Vulcan, Edwards and Solahart, click here.
Mild Steel storage tanks (Solahart) require a sacrificial anode that should be replaced periodically (more expense). The anode is required because the enamel lining is not a guaranteed form of protection. Stainless steel tanks do not require a sacrificial anode, maintenance costs are therefor reduced, and water quality is improved.
Salesmen and TV advertising cost money. This expense is added to the price of a solar hot water system you buy. As we employ neither, you get much better value purchasing from us.
Stainless Steel has a much higher tensile strength than mild steel enabling a stronger, lighter tank that does not require a crane to lift it into place. Your house also benefits due from having less weight on the roof.
