The direct system is used in frost-free locations, where the ambient temperature never falls below 5°C and where the water quality is good (less than 600ppm Total Dissolved Solids/Minerals). The system can be used with Solar Collector Panels or Solar Vacuum Tubes. The direct system, is where the water to be used in the household (hot water) circulates through the solar collector panels, or solar vacuum tubes manifold, transferring solar energy into the storage tank of the solar water heater.
The direct system is used where the water quality is good (less than 600ppm Total Dissolved SolidslMinerals).

The KwikTray Geyser Drip Tray is manufactured from recycled polyethylene and is extremely durable, lightweight and will not rust or dent. The drip tray has been designed to discharge any water that is captured by the tray, through the waste outlet. Trays are available for horizontal and vertical geyser installations…
The indirect system is used in locations where frost occurs, where the ambient temperature falls below 5°C and where the water quality is poor (more than 600ppm total dissolved solids / minerals). The system can be used with solar collector panels or with solar vacuum tubes. An indirect system is where the potable water used in the household (hot water) does not circulate through the solar collector panels or array of vacuum tubes, but remains in the solar water heater and is heated through a heat exchanger around the vessel…
KwikBoil Instant Boiling Water Dispensers are made from a stainless steel or white epoxy outer casing. On tap boiling water.
The direct system is used where the water quality is good (less than 600ppm total dissolved solids/minerals). In a close coupled system the vacuum tubes are an integral part of the storage tank and the heated water in the tubes rises and heats the water in the tank, known as a thermosyphon system.
Commercial Stainless Steel Floor Mounted WC Pan: Model SWC-PAN-FM.
Electricity consumption is only used to transfer heat from the surrounding environment, such as air. The heat pump has the ability to absorb heat (not create heat) and transfer heat by means of a refrigerant, which captures the heat in the ambient air and transfers it to heat water.
