Something you should know before buying a solar water heater

Solar water heater working principle

The solar water heater is composed of tank and solar collector connected to tank. Solar water heaters convert sunlight into heat to heat water. This conversion is mainly accomplished by solar collectors. The sun-facing solar collector collects heat from the sun and heating the flowing cold water. Under the principle of gravity (the density of hot water is lower than that of cold water), the cold water is heated circularly. Once the heated hot water cools to a low temperature, the heating cycle starts again. The heated water will be stored for use when needed.

Advantages of solar water heater

1. The solar water heater is friendly to the environment. It helps people reduce carbon footprint by using renewable energy like sunlight and so on, and realizes the aim of protecting the earth finally. In some areas, tax incentives may be available for using renewable energy.

3. Place the water tank on the bracket, remove the bottom nut, slide the bottom screw of the barrel into the reserved slot of the barrel bracket, and tighten the nuts which are just removed, but do not tighten them.

4. Take out the vacuum collector tube, apply a small amount of lubricant at the opening of the tube, put the dust-proof ring on it, then push it into the hole of the water tank, then slightly fall it back to the pipe bracket, push the joint of the dust-proof ring down along the hole of the barrel, and then install all collector tube brackets in turn.

5. Tighten all the screws and connect the pipes.

6. Connect the indoor water pipes.
