SOLAR INSTALLATION & REPAIRS NORTHERN BEACHES
We are the Northern Beaches solar hot water experts. We’ve been installing solar hot water systems into Northern Beaches homes, unit blocks, retirement villages, aged care facilities, garden flats and businesses for 20+ years. Below we have listed case studies of solar hot water installation and repair jobs we have undertaken. As solar hot water installation experts, we have all the equipment required to install a heavy solar hot water system on the roof of any residential property quickly and on budget. In the video at the bottom of the page you will see our specially designed lifting system which makes light work of hoisting a new solar hot water system onto a roof safely and quickly. Companies without a this system would have to hire something similar – an added expense no doubt passed on to the customer.
Case Study : Rheem solar installation at Balgolwah
We recently installed a new Rheem solar hot water system into a home at Balgowlah. Their old solar system had been giving them trouble free service for the past 25 years. They were happy with the size of their current tank as it was providing sufficient hot water for the household usage. We upgraded them to a tank that was the same size, but a newer model. We suggested they upgrade to the Rheem 52L300 stainless steel model which comes with a 10 year warranty, giving them peace of mind, reliability and a storage system that suits their household hot water usage. This model comes in a range of Colorbond colours. The client chose the “night sky” colour. More information about Rheem’s solar Colorbond range »
Case Study : Solahart Hot Water System Repair at Collaroy Plateau
Mrs Hines from Collaroy Plateau had an old Solahart Loline solar hot water installed but it was no longer getting solar gain from the sun. We tested the old hot water system and found there to be a faulty solar roof sensor. We quickly replaced the sensor with a brand new one and the system was functioning normally again.

Case Study : Upgrade old electric hot water heater to a new solar hot water system at Mona Vale
We recently installed a new roof top Rheem solar hot water system in a home at Mona Vale. The customer was running an old, inefficient electric hot water heater and was very interested in saving money by switching to solar hot water. There was an existing gas supply to the property that was only being used to run a few household appliances. Based on the household size and location, our suggestion was to install a new Rheem solar hot water system with instantaneous gas backup. The gas backup is available for times when the water is not hot enough in the tank. This may happen if there has been excessive hot water usage in the household and the solar hasn’t had enough time, or there isn’t enough sunlight, to heat up the hot water in time for use. This is the perfect solution to ensure you never run out of hot water yet still take advantage of our abundant sunlight with the confidence of gas backup.

Case Study : Small solar hot water heater for garden flat at Bilgola Plateau
Another happy customer at Bilgola Plateau this week receiving a new Rheem stainless steel solar hot water system which replaced their old 125 litre electric water heater storage tank.
The customer’s aim was to reduce their electricity usage long term. By using solar hot water they can have a potential saving of between 60%-80% – not bad!
The roof space on the customer’s home was limited but we have access to many different solar hot water brands and models. We suggested a Rheem solar system which suited their requirements and the roof space.
Case Study : Solar hot water system repair Narraweena
Our help desk received a phone call from Anne, who contacting us with a sense of urgency when her elderly father’s solar hot water heater stopped working. Mr Quatraville, who lives in Narraween on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, had no hot water.
When our repair technicians arrived onsite they ascertained that the current hot water system had only been installed in 2009 yet the tank had completely rusted out.
The existing system was unfortunately beyond repair so we recommended Mr Quatraville install a more reliable brand and model such as the Solarhart Hiline 302 litre solar hot water system. The new Solahart system was installed within one day and hot water was restored.
While on the roof during the installation we replaced some broken roof tiles that Mr Quatraville wasn’t aware of. These would most certainly have causing water to leak into the roof.
Mr Quatroville now has a new Solahart hot water system that will last him a lifetime without causing him any additional problems and operate at minimal running costs.
