the best ever run on sun
I've had a 24 tub one of these for a few years now & only had to back it up once with my 50 lt elec one . It cost me around $ 2400 with freight so easy to set up , don't know why i didn't have one years ago . With power pricing it paid for itself after 3 ,1/2 years . But i will say this , it's a must to change the anodes every 18 months , for a long trouble free life of it . Did mine after 2 years & it was totally shot from the heat . It was getting the water white hot , so now i pull shade cloth over it in the summer months . I also put the over flow bleed off back to my tank , saves on water waist . I do rate run on sun very high for there support while installing it & after market support . It's a must in my books .
maunual for Run on Sun shws
I have just purchased a second hand Run on Sun solar hot water service and need the install manual - in particular the water inlet and outlet diagram. My guess is that the writing on the inlets and outlets has faded. Their web site seems to be down. can anyone help please?
this is the best solar hotwater on the market ten stars to andrew and runonsun
Best and most efficient system - have one in rural area - on ground and easy to access - especially to cover when needed. Very rarely need back up to heat. One of the first ROSAHPEL in Australia!! Put another one on a tin roof which has to be part covered .
I purchased a Run on Sun ROSAHP250EL replacing a Solar Edwards unit that needed boosting every time the temperature fell below 25 deg C.
Since installing the unit, despite the coldest winter experienced in Perth for 23 yrs the unit did not require boosting reducing my electricity demand so that the PV solar system can handle, reducing my utility power bill to almost zero.
During the summer months when days are over 30 deg C, sometimes in excess of 40 deg C the unit expels up to 10 litres of water that I collect in a plastic bucket when ...cool used to water plants. I have thought about installing a blind to partially shade the heat tubes for when away for extended periods and summer period to reduce the amount of water expelled. The Perth water salinity is increasing, a shandy including bore and reverse osmosis water which may be aggressive on the sacrificial magnesium anode requiring more frequent replacement than recommended. Installation of the frame is tricky as the base bearing beams are predrilled to match the building code rafter spacing. However, buildings are constructed so that nothing is regularly spaced, square or parallel. Drilling through Bristle clay tiles is easily achieved using diamond-tipped drills to install the copper pipes to the mixer valve and cold water inlet. Overall I think the unit is very effective in heating water with no moving parts other than the mixer valve and minimal servicing required to periodically replace the sacrificial anode and purge any dirt buildup within the tank.
You can spend nothing on hot water ever
I think this is the most reliable, most efficient, and longest lasting, solar hot water system on the market. An excellent producer of hot water in Canberra's winters we have never turned the electric booster on.
When it came to replacing the 20 year old solarhart I wanted its good points improved and bad points mitigated. The run on sun system does both. Stainless steel tank both inner and outer, high efficiency heat pipe technology with no water in the tubes, no pumps or controllers, and no chemical antifreeze fluids to leak into gutters. T...
