solar hot water system diagram

Ever wondered how gas or electric boosted solar hot water systems work? Here's a quick rundown based on the above diagram:

1. Cold water enters storage tank from mains

2. If there is heat available on the roof, the pump station will switch on and circulate water through the solar collector

3. Water is heated in the collected and returned to the storage tank. This process is repeated until the top out temperature is reached

4. Hot water is tempered down to a safe level (around 50 degrees Celsius) and supplied to the home fixtures

5. If not enough heat is generated from the sun, and electric or gas booster simply tops it up as required
