Soak in the sunshine and SAVE

Ground mounted solar water heaters, also known as "split systems", consist of a separated configuration of a ground mounted tank and roof mounted thermal collectors.

These systems are designed to provide installation flexibility, to reduce the load on your roof structure and to provide a streamlined roof top appearance. Ground-mounted systems are available with open-loop tanks for general applications and closed-loop configurations suitable for frost-prone areas or 'hard' water conditions.

Our range of ground mounted (split) systems features typical options in tank size and gas or electric boost. Hard water areas and cold climate zones are handled with our closed loop variants and systems with evacuated tube collectors. Our tanks and collectors are manufactured to ISO 9001 international quality standards and are built tough to handle Australia's harsh conditions.
