BURST GEYSER? Steps to follow.

We understand that it is a crisis struggling with a burst geyser and cold showers.  The good news is that this is the perfect opportunity for you to upgrade to a solar water heater. Here’s how:

BURST GEYSER? Steps to follow

Step 1: Contact us at Solar Juice (C:083 384 3840)

  • We’ll visit you and help where necessary. We’ll also provide you with a solar water heater installation quote.
  • Every family’s hot water consumption is different and every home’s layout is different. There are also many different kinds of systems and during a quote visit we’ll advise you regarding the best options to suit your specific needs and together we can make the right decision as aesthetic preferences also play an important role.  They geyser can be installed inside the roof or on the roof.
  • We are registered at *PIRB as plumber; solar geyser- and heat pump installer.

*PIRB (plumbing industry registration board)

 Step 2: Contact your insurer:

  • Call your insurer and tell them you want to replace your burst geyser with a solar water heater.
  • Request a cash pay-out (of the replacement value of your geyser) from your buildings policy.
  • The insurer pays it directly into your bank account.

Step 3: Give Solar Juice the go-ahead to install

  • We accept a 50% deposit as booking and the rest of the payment can be done once the installation is finalised.

Step 4: Agree on the installation date & install

  • We install the system in one day and we test the system before we leave your home.

Step 5: Enjoy peace of mind

  • We install all the safety measurements to ensure that the residents and the solar geyser system are protected.
  • As you know the sun can heat the water to 80°C+ and you don’t want water that hot to come out of your hot water taps.

Save money:

Your insurance pay-out drops the average payback period for a solar water heater considerably. This adds substantially to your savings.

Now is your best chance to switch and save.

Don’t let the possibility of your household going a day without hot water keep you from upgrading to solar.  Remember: The country’s power shortage will be with us for years to come, and you’re likely to have problems getting hot water in the months and years ahead anyway or find the electricity cost too hight if you don’t change to solar.  Annual tariff increases will also continue for many years. Now is the best moment to upgrade! A day or two of patience now can bring many years of savings – and peace of mind – to come.

Switch your electrical geyser to solar and use the sun’s energy to heat your water.

We install:
– solar geysers,
– solar pool heating,
– heat pumps for geysers & pools.

A solar spill is called a sunny day!! A favourite saying in the solar business.

About Fred and Fred’s Tree Services:

Fred is well-known for his compassion and work with trees under his company name:  Fred’s Tree Services.  They specialise in the pruning, felling and chipping of trees.  Fred is a member of the International Society of Arboriculture and boasts with German qualifications.

Fred has registered various trees as national monuments in order to save the beautiful trees from being cut down.  That is a brilliant showcase of his commitment towards the environment and also with this step to move from a coal-based water heating solution to a solar based heating solution.

This solar water heating system is a natural flow (thermo siphon) system, where the geyser is located higher than the panel.  The investment in a solar water heater (geyser) system is one of the best investments, since you save considerably on your monthly electricity bill and it reduces pollution.  Electricity load shedding won’t bother Fred after a long day at work, he will be able to relax with a hot shower.

Nice weather, cold pool water!? Heating your swimming pool – how does it work?

Nice weather, cold pool water!? Heating your swimming pool – how does it work?

Heating your swimming pool

The cold water from your swimming pool is pumped through the solar pool heating panels which are installed on the roof of your house (on the north facing side of the roof). The heated water from the panels is redirected through a closing valve back into the existing piping leading back to your pool. The water is circulated for the whole time while the pump is running. Your existing pool pump is used, therefore no additional cost is incurred.

You want to have your solar pool heating panels installed on the roof of a double storey house…. please note!

We recommend a 1,1 kWh pool pump for best results. This is not to say that the 0,75 kWh pump will not work but rather that the solar system efficiency will be reduced by using a 0.75 kWh pump.

How many panels do you need for solar pool heating?

Measure the length and width of your pool. For example (4 meters x 8 meters = 32 meters) divided by 3.6 will indicate that you would need a north facing area for 9 panels of 1.2 meters in width and 3 meters in length.

If your pool pump is faulty and needs to be replaced?

Hint: Keep in mind that the higher the watts, the more electricity your pump will use. A 0.75kW pump is sufficient for most swimming pools (for both the pool cleaning/filtering and circulating the water through the solar heating panels).  If you are unsure, you are welcome to give us a call.

We also offer heat pumps for swimming pool heating:

We also offer heat pumps as a solution where the solar pool heating won’t suffice (where a much higher temperature is required during winter months).
