Flue water jacket, Red Circle 250 litre roof mounted system with stainless steel roof tank, 30 tubes, Quickie Installation Kit and Element.
This retro fit system is suitable if you have an existing fire (with no water jacket) and no solar hot water system.
This is the complete retro fit kit to convert your current slow combustion wood fire into a boiler which will boost the solar hot water system on your roof in the Winter when you light the fire. In the Summer the evacuated tubes will provide all the hot water you need as long as the Sun is shining. If the Sun does not shine then there is an optional electric element available ($95) which will boost whatever heat there is in the solar tank to the required temperature (50 degrees is all you need as the Tempering valve will drop it to 50 Degrees anyway and given that your hot water comes from a heat exchanger there is no requirement to raise it any higher). You may never need to use the electric element boost – so many users only switch the element on (from the Power box where the circuit breakers are) when needed.
