Don't think that 10 years use has saved us much & now needs replacing

published

We run the booster for the winter months or we'd waste too much water waiting for the warmth. After 10 yrs its nearly dead, the anode is stuck and the tank lining is disintegrating and clogging the pipes.

solahart hot warer system

published

I have had two solahart hot water in last thirty years first lasted twenty years the last one just over 10 years I would not advise fitting one any where south of the divide as you go further north would be better as south of divide not enough sun they use electricity at least 60% of the time and the last one started leaking water and was going to cost $4000 just to replace the tank besides having to replace thermostat 3 times have now fitted 60c gas continuous flow only cost $750 now I have perfect hot water all the time

Solarhart hot water system

published

This system is useless in winter - 2 short showers & a load of washing and the water is only lukewarm for the rest of the day. In summer there is no problem (we live in hot summers, cold winters). Plumbers have advised us that in winter the system needs to be turned on to day rate, which is high peak costs. The only alternative is to have a gas booster installed. We are installing a gas hot water system as it will be more economical.

Beware of solahart hot water heaters not lasting

published

We had a roof solar hot water installed in about 2012 by solahart. After the instillation we found the hot water was not very hot (the booster is on 24/7) after 6 years the water heater started to leak from the tank. Solahart would not give any warranty so we spent over $2000 on a new tank
I do not recommend solahart

Substandard Product, substandard customer sevice

published

Paid almost double the average price for a Solahart system thinking "you get what you pay for", how wrong was I, here I am looking at my second Christmas in three years with no hot water, now been fobbed off three times this time. Think I might start legal proceedings against them as it's still under warrenty and I've had enough. Solahart Midland, W.A. you suck, buyer beware.
Hot water when it works
bad warranty service, breaks down on an annual basis.

First solar hart unit lasted 20 years - next one 15 years. Have been advised replacement is required and it only has a ten year warranty. Prices on the up and up and quality?

Hi, I was reading through the owner’s manual and was puzzled why the working pressure of the L collector was 1400kPa and the test pressure was 300kpa/45psi. Should it be 3000kPa?
