CSA Approval - finally......

We have written before about the nightmare that is the "CSA approval" of solar water heating collectors in Canada. Its not a pretty stort, one which does nothing to help bring down prices for people. (see here for the story).
However we have finally managed to get the right to stick a lable saying "Certified to CSA Standard F378 series 11" on the collectors.

Certified to CSA Standard F378 series 11

What does this mean for you? As for the quality of the collectors, not much, they are the same high quality as before, it just means we paid a ton of money and went through a painfull beauracratic maze to get this sticker and this should now satisfy your plumbing inspector if you install one on your house! This certification applies to all the L51S-30, L51S-20, L51S-10 models.

Integrated Solar Tanks

These are a great solution for people wanting smaller solar water heating systems, either for offgrid homes and businesses. These solar water heaters come with a built in non pressurised tank which fills with water which the sun then heats using the solar vaccum tubes.

Save $$$

  1. Tank Included
  2. No Pump Needed
  3. No Heat Exchanger Needed

With "normal" solar hot water systems, using the L51S-30, L51S-20, L51S-10 models, the installer needs to find a suitable tank and heat exchanger and build them separately in the house or business. Which this arrangement does have some advantages, it does cost more money and can be more complicated to install.

Integrated Solar Water HeatingTank

These Integrated solar tank collectors come with the tank prebuilt in which simplifies the system greately and it also saves a lot of money. We have brought in two different models.
