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.
