Generally happy but we may look at other brands when we need to replace this one on advice of our plumber.He seems to think that the price of new units outstrips Sola-Harts reputation
Had a 300l system installed around 12 years now. Last year had leaking valves replaced- cost $600ish. Our system faces dead north and with only 2 users runs far too hot in summer so we cover the RHS collector with shade cloth in warm months(Perth,W.A.).One of the co-developers of the system installed it and told us to do this(prolongs system life he added) ,although a S/H tech seemed a bit evasive on this subject even when pushed about it???
They are a costly item ,but we have recovered costs I suppose.

Did you bother to replace the anode at five years ? If you did not that is the reason why . Read the owners manual

They have less pressure than any normal hot water system because the water pressure can only be a maximum of 500kpa. and if there is no pressure limiting valve "PLV" it can void the warranty
Rheem own solarhart so you get a great service if there are any issues
No colour range

Sorry but your facts are wrong. Solahart hot water systems are full mains pressure. If you have low pressure it is not the Solahart it is more likely the heat tempering valve which is not part of the Solahart systems

We have been using Solahart 300L system for the last 8 years. In that time we only had one problem with one of the valves on the roof (valve cost approx $100 and it took only a few minutes to replace). The electric booster is switched off all the time and only get switched on when we have long periods of rain. This year so far the cost of electricity for the booster (separate meter and cheaper tariff) was under $10. But I have to admit we are well situated: north of Brisbane and the system is directly facing the north. I cannot say if it paid for it self yet, as it was part of our new house.
Saves energy and money, very hot water

Dear Sir
I have owned my solahart l series for 4 1/2 years and will require service shortly.
The question is what parts are included free in the $350 SERVICE cost. Eg cathode , tempering valve, filters any oyher valves

Thanks
Glenn McGrath
