Solahart 302 Litre Solar Hot Water System Leaking

Repair Solahart 302 Litre Solar Hot Water System Leaking

Today Jim’s Plumbing was called out to a leaking Solahart 302 litre solar hot water system that was located on the roof of the owner’s home. Despite being a Sunday morning, our plumber was able to arrive on site within 30 minutes of the customer’s phone call and was quickly able to identify the issue.

Our customer was amazed at the prompt and efficient service he received from Jim’s Plumbing, especially seeing as our plumber was onsite in just a few minutes after his phone call and had all the necessary replacement parts with him. Jim’s Plumbing is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week and can help you with all of your hot water problems.

Fortunately, the unit itself and the panels were in good working order and only the relief valve was found to be faulty. Much to our customer’s delight, the unit only required a replacement relief valve and did not need a full unit replacement which would have been a much more costly and lengthy exercise.

One of the common difficulties faced when attending solar hot water system repairs is reaching the unit when it is located on the roof space. In fact, during wet weather and old cold dewing mornings, access to these rooftop units it virtually impossible due to safety risks.

Like most solar hot water companies, Solahart manufactures a ground based hot water system which only requires the panels to be installed on the roof and allows for much easier access for maintenance technicians and plumbers. This particular stainless steel Solahart hot water system shown in the image above is fitted with a ceramic-lined tank that increases the weight of the unit considerably, making it far difficult for plumbers to install and remove them from roof spaces.

The unit is also equipped with a sacrificial anode, unlike other solar hot water units on the market. The Solahart 302 litre solar system comes with a 5 year warranty on the collectors and cylinder and also has an electrical backup system to allow water heating even on overcast and cloudy days where the solar panels are rendered ineffective.
