Solar water heating at Tre Donne Estate (near Somerset West / Sir Lowry’s Pass Village)

A second opportunity!!

A big THANK YOU to our dedicated clients of the past 6 years and new future clients. It is so great when your clients call on you to be of service for a second or third time.

Today’s repeat service: We are installing a solar geyser system near Somerset-West (Tre-donne Estate) for a client who made use of our services first in 2012.

Extract from our client’s previous email: “Dear Leon, You installed a solar geyser at our home in July 2012 and your service was great!! We are now ready to get a quote and discuss the details of a new system for my mum’s house that we are building on the same property”.

Water heating system design: What and how?

The system design depends on:

  • the requirements of the client (hot water consumption, whether the geyser must be outside on the roof or inside the roof, etc) and on
  • the structure of the building (whether the geyser can be located higher than the panels; if there is enough roof space, etc.).
  • Some clients prefer a heat pump while others prefer a solar water heater. 

In this instance, the geyser is located higher (inside the roof), than the panels (outside on the roof). This enables a natural water flow and does not require with a pump.
