Solar Geyser Maintenance
Solar geysers/water heating system. How does it workThe two main components of your solar geyser system are the hot water tank or geyser and the solar panels.
The water is heated directly by circulating through the copper piping that is mounted below the solar panel and absorbs the heat from the sun or indiredctly. Indirect water heating requires the syphon system where the hot water rises and is drawn through the pipes circulating between the heated plates of the solar panel and the geyser,transferring heat to the water inside.
What about the weather
The weather should generally not have too much of an imact on the heat of the water. In South Africa the weather is usually sunny and it is warm most days. On days when it is raining and there is no sun, especally if it is for a few days at a time, electricity will have to be used to keep the water at the preferred temperature.
General upkeep of the solar water heating system
Solar panels for the solar geyser or water heating system require little to no maintenance. The main things that are required is that the solar panel is cleaned intermittently.Pipes and connections are made to resist the onslaught of the sun, so nothing more than the general inspection once or twice a year to keep your solar water heating system working optimally for many years.
