Category:

Apricus solar hot water systems are designed with evacuated tube collectors that passively track the sun for more hours of the day to provide greater solar collection. They are available in 250l, 315l and 400 litre sizes so there is a suitable system size for all households and number of occupants. Apricus solar hot water systems are either gas or electric boosted to provide hot water even when the sun does not shine.

As a guide only, until you speak with SA Hot Water, for an Apricus solar hot water system a broad indication of system sizes are:

  • 1-2 Bedrooms: 22 evacuated tube solar collectors with a 250L tank
  • 3-4 Bedrooms: 30 evacuated tube solar collectors with a 315L tank
  • 4+ Bedrooms: 44 evacuated tube solar collectors with a 400L tank

There are various system options available, with a choice of:

  • boosting options
  • gas (natural or LPG)
  • electric
  • system configurations (thermosiphon or split systems)

A complete solar hot water system usually includes:

  • Solar Collector
  • Hot Water Storage Heater
  • Pump Station
  • Controller
  • Booster (Backup Energy Source)

  • Passive Sun Tracking
    The round tube design of the Apricus collectors passively tracks the sun to provide more solar collection for more hours of the day.
  • Cyclone Rated
    Our mounting frames are designed in Australia and are rated to withstand cyclonic winds.
  • Cold Weather High Performance
    Apricus evacuated tubes have a vacuum between two glass layers working like a thermos flask allowing up to 95% of the solar energy to be retained leading to higher performances in colder climates.
  • Built-in Frost Protection
    All Apricus solar hot water systems have built-in frost profection (-15 0 C) without glycol so there is less maintenance.
  • Superior Hail Resistance
    Our tubes have been independently tested and shown to withstand impact from a 25mm ice ball at 90km/hr.
  • Light-Weight, Durable Design
    A 30 tube collector weighs approximately 110kg spread over a 2.2m x 2.0m roof space so there is no inconvenience using cranes to install. Reinforcing the roof structure is not necessary compared to other solar hot water systems than can weight up to 500kg on a roof.
  • Designed in Australia to meet Australian conditions
    Apricus is an Australian owned and operated company. All systems are designed to meet even the toughest Australian conditions and built to last.
  • Up to 15 Year Warranty*We provide a 15 year collector warranty and 10 year warranty on solar hot water tanks. *See Warranty for details.
